FC Barcelona’s financial situation appears to be far from the stability that its managers so desperately desire. Despite the optimistic statements of Joan Laporta, who stated in a recent interview on “El Món a RAC1” that the club is working diligently to comply with financial fair play regulations, new revelations highlight the complexity of the situation.
According to reports presented by Marta Ramón on the RAC1 program “Tu diràs”, Barça faces a significant challenge in achieving the much-desired 1:1 relationship within the framework of financial fair play. Apparently, a single million-dollar sale like that of Ronald Araujo, who is being tempted by FC Bayern Munich for almost 100 million euros, would not be enough to balance the culé club’s balance sheet.
According to sources cited by the Catalan broadcaster, Barcelona would be forced to get rid of at least “two to three more players” in order to fill the existing gap and meet its financial obligations. In addition, emphasis is placed on the need to ensure the outstanding payment of the operation related to “Barça Vision”, a task that does not seem easy.
You have to sell
In view of this problem, the club president had already raised the possibility of resorting to the sale of assets in order to improve the financial situation. Laporta emphasized the importance of the income generated through the sale of players, describing it as a normal source of income and underlining the complexity of the upcoming transaction with “Barça Vision”, which is still completely unresolved.
