La Liga strikes Barcelona with yet another financial blow

According to barcanewsnetwork, FC Barcelona’s Spanish Super Cup and La Liga wins last season demonstrated the Catalan club’s capacity to win trophies even under the most trying conditions. The Blaugranes have historically struggled financially, and their financial situation prevents them from competing with other major European teams for market goals.

Barcelona experienced a further blow yesterday as La Liga published the squad cost restrictions for first-division teams, with the Catalan club’s maximum reduced from €270 million to €204 million. Mundo Deportivo has now identified the key reasons why Barcelona’s limit has dropped. Since last September, the Blaugranes have been working with the €270 million in mind, and despite keeping their personnel costs constant, they have also produced more expenses than income.

Although this is more of an accounting problem that will be shown in the 2022-23 season’s books, it nevertheless has an influence on the club’s spending limitations for the next season. However, the entrance of Vitor Roque will have no effect on this figure because he was brought in as a result of Gavi’s injury, and his contract is stopped due to his extended absence.

Furthermore, this is not the final limit with which Barcelona will enter the summer market; a fuller image will be gained in May, when the club submits its treasury plan to the league authorities. For the time being, however, it is apparent that until Barcelona can lower its €200 million deficit, it will continue to be constrained by the 50% rule rather than the regular 1:1. Thus, the Catalans will only be able to utilise 50% of the earnings from a player’s sale to register new players.

One operation that might greatly improve the club’s situation in this respect is to acquire the remaining funds from the sale of Barca Studios. The Catalans still need to receive €40 million to match La Liga’s payroll restriction for Barcelona.
