La Liga boss Tebas warns Barcelona over new signings

Mon 28 June 2021 | 11:03

The La Liga president talked about the Blaugrana’s financial crisis in blunt terms and believes Barcelona should be wise regarding their new signings.

Barcelona

are struggling financially as they are around €1billion in debt and

Joan Laporta

is trying his best to save the sinking ship, while keeping the team competitive.

However, signing players like

Sergio Aguero

,

Eric Garcia

and

Memphis Depay

, who were free agents, has helped the Catalans, while

Lionel Messi

is likely to sign an extension that will keep him for another two years.

Players like Ousmane Dembele, Philippe Coutinho, and Antoine Griezmann, who have big wages, may have to be sacrificed for the benefit of the club and

Javier Tebas

told fans to not expect Barca to reinvest all the transfer fees as it is not possible.

Tebas told El Transistor, via

Mundo Deportivo

:<em>

“We have a special procedure for when a club goes over its salary established by La Liga, where clubs can only include players who represent 25% of the savings.

“If Barca sell a player for €100million, they can only spend €25million.

“If Barca receives €10million on a sale, they can only spend €2.5million on a new signing.

“If Barcelona want to bring in a player who costs them €25million per season in salary, they must earn, either by transfer or by a salary reduction, €100 million.”

Tebas also talked about how the rules influence Barca’s squad:

“They have to reduce salaries in the squad considerably or produce fees from sold players.

“Publically, I cannot tell of the plan Barcelona have.

“They know that if they don’t sell an important player of the current squad that they have players with contracts in force that they cannot include.”
