FC Barcelona: Optimism, despite the inscriptions to the limit

The Barca yesterday lived a new frenetic day. Just over 48 hours before the official premiere of the 2022-23 season, with the league debut against Vallecano Ray in the Spotify Camp Nou -Saturday at 9:00 p.m.-, the Barça club put all the machinery in motion to get the five signings (Kessie, Christensen, Raphinha, Lewandowski and Koundé), plus the ‘refiche’ Ousmane Dembele Y Sergio Robert can be registered on time in LaLiga and thus can be under the orders of Xavi Hernandez to face the Madrid team on the first day.

Despite the fact that Barça hoped to be able to announce yesterday the activation of the fourth economic lever, for which the club will enter another 100 million euros in exchange for the other 24.5% of Barca Studiosboth the president, Joan Laportaas the first vice president Rafa Yustewere used from early in the afternoon to leave it on track in the Camp Nou offices.

In fact, just yesterday the Barça club was advancing the rest of the documentation to LaLiga so that the football employers analyze all the documents in time and thus avoid last minute surprises, although the FC Barcelona I would have until the same Saturday to be able to register the players.

Side jobs

The Barca He trusts that only with the activation of the fourth lever can he already register the seven footballers who are without a license, but just in case, and seeing the obstacles that the body led by Javier Tebas has put up to date, he also accelerated the contacts with the agents of the footballers with whom he does not have or those who have proposals to leave the Barça club.

The clearest case is memphis depay, who could be one step away from leaving Barça’s discipline. Although Chelsea seemed willing to make an effort to take Pierre-Emerick aubameyanga soccer player very much to Thomas Tuchel’s liking, neither the Gabonese striker is in the mood to leave, nor Xavi why go away That is why, and despite the fact that with Auba the Barca could make cash, who will receive the green light to leave will be memphiswhich although it could be free will lighten the payroll of forwards and also the wage bill, something that would also help in the face of ‘fair play’.

with the agents of Frenkie de Jong and Braithwaite in Barcelona since yesterday, it will also be necessary to see if throughout today there is any contact with the club and the representatives. Braithwaite has known since May that it does not fit into the plans of Xavi, but has forced until the end to be able to collect the remaining contract with Barça. Very different is the case of Frankie de Jong, who is not only reluctant to leave because he wants to succeed at Barça, but is also not willing to give up the contract that the previous board signed in October 2020, when in the first year he made an effort to help the club by lowering his salary in the midst of the Covid pandemic. In addition, today the transfer to the Valencia of Nicowho despite not having a high chip, will help something in the ‘fair play’.
