Jordi Alba puts Laporta in a bind: he leaves FC Barcelona on one condition


The sports management, still in charge of Mateu Alemany, managed to sign off the left-back, but its cost does not justify the operation. It is assumed that the contractual release of the player was done to save money and not the other way around.

The latest news in the environment of the FC Barcelonahas to do with the departure of left-back Jordi Alba, on June 30. It will be on that date where player and club will say goodbye, in an agreement arranged by the 2 parties. Joan Laporta hoped to save a fortune with the departure of the winger, but in the same way they have to scratch their pockets to a large extent.

Jordi Alba’s record was one of the highest in the Barça squad, and due to his contract until 2024, Laporta hoped that the player would not receive 100% of that salary. The truth is that the man from Hospital agreed to only collect 60%, but due to pending payments from previous seasons, the amount that they will have to pay is very high.

Although Jordi Alba will only receive 60% of his salary to sign his departure in the next summer market, FC Barcelona owes him a sum that exceeds 30 million euros.

The departure of Jordi Alba at FC Barcelona is set at 36 million euros

The emoluments of the left back per year are agreed at 17.5 million euros. So if he forgives 40%, the amount they will pay him is 10.5 kilos. So far, it seems a more than fair figure for the 34-year-old footballer to leave the Spotify Camp Nou. However, salary deferrals from past seasons would raise that number.

The winger is owed salaries for the 2020-21 and 2021-22 seasons. No more than the previous year, 7.55 million are owed, although 2.83 have already been paid. So, the balance is 4.3 kilos. The accounts of the past campaign amount to 12.32 million, of which nothing has been partially paid. And finally, from this championship, Barca has a debt with the winger of almost 9 kilos. In total, the Blaugrana team must pay 36 million to Jordi Alba.

The need to sell at FC Barcelona worsens, to be able to pay Jordi Alba

In the culé environment there is no rest, and with the approach of the summer market they are running out of fronts. The main objective is the signing of Lionel Messi, but his file needs several starts to reduce the salary mass. Now with the debt of the Catalan winger, things are getting more difficult than they were a few weeks ago.

The task now for Mateu Alemany (who has just been ratified in office) will be to speed up all those operations that already have a sales sign. On that list are: Eric García, Andreas Christensen, Franck Kessié, Pablo Torre, Ansu Fati, Ferran Torres, and possibly Raphinha. In the case of Ousmane Dembélé, his departure will only leave 25 kilos, since the other 25 will go to the footballer’s pockets.
