Luis Suarez has fully recovered and is ready to start against Mallorca. The player will be given the medical clearance on Monday, according to Spanish newspaper Sport.

In Barcelona’s training sessions, Suárez is showing top-form. His team-mates often applaud him for his great goals in the 7-against-7 matches. The group sessions easily show that his injury is past now, as he has been training for 20 days with his team-mates now.

It will be the first time in which he plays under coach Quique Setién when he will start against Mallorca. Despite having a new weapon for the rest of the season, Setién’s player management has become complicated, with Griezmann, Ansu Fati, Dembélé, and Suarez all back.

Everyone has some kind of passion. For me, it is FC Barcelona. I started to write stories about the club I support in 2017, and have been lucky enough to be part of such a wonderful team.

At this point, practically everyone not living under a rock knows Barcelona are struggling financially. Part of that issue is certainly the ongoing pandemic, which has put more than just a dent in everyone’s wallets. However, the other part of that problem was also self-inflicted when it comes to the Catalan giants.

According to Carrusel Deportivo‘s latest report, Barcelona have spent a record one billion euros in the last five seasons on the market. They’ve gathered the information from Transfermarkt and their data source of spendings to create a list of teams who have spent the most in recent times.

And with a total of 1.057 million euros thrown down the drain, Barcelona have convincingly taken the first spot. Of course, this is not exactly a race you want to be leading or winning, for that matter. Manchester City are just behind them with €952M and Juventus are third with €941M.

Interestingly, Real Madrid are the ones who have lost the least amount, ‘only’ €47M, which is indeed pocket change compared to Barcelona’s €367M. Still, it has to be noted that the Catalans are also the club with the second-highest income in the last five years, €690M to be more precise, but that is so heavily outweighed by the losses that it hardly makes a difference.

When we take all of that into account, it really does become crystal clear why they are in such a mess in the first place. Needless to say, whoever wins the elections in less than a week’s time will have a mountain to climb to get the club out of this mess.

But we should also understand that kind of a job is not something you can solve quickly. It may take a couple of seasons of good and sensible business to bring Barcelona back from the brink.

Still, it is possible and with the right leadership, it should inevitably happen.
