Good management in Barca - getting those 3 players on a free. Salary cap, perhaps that's what's needed all across Europe, especially Premiership. A soft wage cap, if team goes over then has to pay additional (steep) annual tax(payments) to the league.

He would be perfect for LFC as competition for Firmino, but his profile completely falls short of our criteria. . .(Over 30, and unwilling to take a 75% wage cut) . .

lol so while having terrible wage structure, They're still signing players they cant pay. No Club should help them out, low ball offers like they do to everybody else. Let them prove again FFP is BS.

If you want to balance the books, just sell Messi! Having just put him on a long contract on about half his previous wages, he is saleable asset once again. Whilst he is still there, they cannot really redevelop the team.

@Timbone 34 years old who will be ballon d'or winner in December and still one of the best itw and 30% of club's revenue depend on that player. Trincão and todibo got chances and they weren't good enough as simple as that. Club is also promoting plenty of youth players as well apart from pedri, fati and puig with the likes of collado, Moriba, nico Gonzalez etc
Timbone 6 dager siden
@nayan agal Pique is like 35. Lenglet is supposedly error prone. Trincao is a new signing. You can't call them trash It is no different from the deal to sell Arthur and bring in Pjanic. Just admit it that your club is still poorly run. Instead of building for the future, it is a team built on soon to be 35 year olds

Barcelona desperate? One second ... let me get my smallest violin. You continue to pursue players that don’t necessarily fit your system when they play their best football elsewhere. You offer huge wages & pay over the odds (Coutinho from Liverpool - everyone in Liverpool was laughing) & then don’t expect this to bite you in the backside? The people running the club are dense.

Sid Lowe is an anti-Barca propagandist. Every transfer market he tries to ruin Barca’s leverage and says they’re desperate and need to sell, need to buy, have no leverage etc. I wonder who’s paying his bills? Perez, somewhere in the Middle East? But definitely trying to damage Barca in the transfer market. Ale Moreno is just a parrot who repeats whatever just happened so I don’t blame him

I think you know it's desperate when there are rumours that they not prepared to play Coutinho again if he stays because there are still clauses that still need to be met and owned to Liverpool, Michael Edwards is a genius, he has held Barca basically at gun point, obviously the pandemic hasn't helped but Barca spending hasn't either, surely they should of known that this wasn't going to end well, that this wasn't going to be sustainable. Karma is b**ch but it's what they deserve

@Adam Ruffo wage cut? No club is paying over 250k a week for him, going from 700k a week to 250k is not a realistic wage cut. He’s priced himself out of a lot of realistic premier league clubs. Not many PL clubs are willing taking that risk on Griezmann
Adam Ruffo
Adam Ruffo 8 dager siden
@The Truth Of course he would have to take a wage cut but it's the chance to play in the Prem for a still, though fallen quite a bit, top 6 side. We're a team that's rebuilding and Barcelona hasn't really panned out so it might be a chance for him to come into a side and bring some creativity and energy. New league brings new challenges and it might be what he needs to do what he do.

I think Alejandro doesn't understand leverage. In a two-bid market, Barca is in the position he describes....but this isn't a two-bid market. Chelsea might think like him...but then they realize City, United, Liverpool, PSG, Munich, Juve might beat their lowball offer or Arsenal, Spurs, Inter, Dortmund, could see an opening and bid big. In a multi-bid market, the value as an asset is determined by the asset itself, hence why Griezmann is not at a discount, whereas Bale is

The big issue of Barcelona during this pandemic (next to the mismanagement of Bartomeu) is that Barcelona as a members club cannot get a capital injection unlike the other clubs. This is the big issue that the analysis misses out on.

Selling him will be a mistake , he had good season last year .... better negotiate salaries first with him than selling him to other clubs .... meanwhile dembele and philippe coutinho have been unproductive they should be sold first by hook or crock .... I liked Griezmann a lot last season though his performances in bigger matches needs some improvement but still he shows promise in forward , linkup and defense work also . Messi is aging and he can be perfect replacement of him some matches when we will be resting messi .

Football is so weird these days, you get to a big club after dominating with a smaller club and immediately are hated on by media and fans because you didn’t score in one game in your settling in period, then you start putting together good form, nobody bats an eyelid, then you get sold a year later, very strange. I feel sorry for Memphis depay as this is exactly what’s going to happen to him too

underrated comment, I 100% agree. I think Depay will be mostly a failure just like all the other Barcelona signings, they've just lost the ability to pair any type of offensive player with messi for whatever reason. Their best players are the ones that come from their academy like Fati, Pedri, Puig etc

First of all Barca don't have no money. They signed 3 new players but they don't off load the players they don't want and no team can pay these player salary. So they don't have no money to sign Messi and pay the new players and the rest of player Barka and Real Madrid don't have no money 🤣 but back lash just because buying players so no other team cannot get the player . Justice have served . The best club balance club is Bayern Munich you never here no problem with them because they are institution 👍😎

@AtomaticoM18 to be fair he has 13 goals in laliga this season and 8 assists and almost 20 goals for the entire season . Its pretty decent considering the fact that coman does not start him always . But I guess expectation from a player of his caliber are even higher . If you compare him and hazard's numbers there is a huge difference . And that is super hard for me to admit since I am a hazard fan.
