The huge debts generated in recent years hinder the management of FC Barcelona. At the Camp Nou they now have to watch every zloty they spend several times, which means that in the current transfer window, the pride of Catalonia can’t afford big purchases and free recruitment of players. To ease the budget, officials also need to bid farewell to high-income players to find funding to sign a new deal with Lionel Messi. Spanish media reported that the fate of Philippe Coutinho, Ousmane Dembele and Antoine Griezmann is doomed to failure at the Camp Nou.
There is no doubt that all three failed to live up to the expectations of the Catalan fans. Most of them were expected of Griezmann, who went to Barcelona as a star from La Liga for Atletico Madrid. The French did not stay at the Camp Nou for long, and now Barcelona activists are doing their best to reach an agreement with Los Rojiblancos and get rid of the French player. As part of the exchange, Saul Niguez was to go to Barcelona, and the Catalan Duma was still counting on an additional cash injection of close to 15-20 million euros. However, the Spanish champions do not want to hear about it and are pushing for a cashless exchange. So a Saul move is no longer an option, and Barcelona are now hoping to sign Joao Felix in place of Griezmann.
Camp Nou activists are still facing a nightmare with Lionel Messi’s new contract. The Argentine, although he agreed to significantly reduce his salary, did not sign the new contract. According to media reports, Messi is set to sign a five-year contract with the Catalan club.
