Transfer Rumors and News

La Liga tell Barcelona at least one big-money sale is needed to return to 1:1 rule

The main objective heading into the summer transfer window for FC Barcelona is to return to the 1:1 rule in terms of Financial Fair Play so that they can operate with freedom in the market.

The situation at the club is delicate financially, and in order to achieve the objective, several steps need to be taken before the summer window.

Faced with such a scenario, the club, chaired by Joan Laporta, has been in close contact with La Liga in recent weeks in order to get a better idea of the roadmap to follow, reports SPORT.

Process complicated

Barcelona see it as very complicated to be able to operate normally in the next transfer window.

To do so, it would be necessary to compensate for the €100 million payment from Libero that has not arrived (€40 million from last summer plus another €60 million in June) and, in addition, to make at least two important sales.

Furthermore, it must also be remembered that at the end of the current season, the guarantee of €18 million that several directors provided at the beginning of the season to solve the registration problems will expire.

Barcelona hoping for some leeway from La Liga

La Liga has told the club that if they really aspire to return to the 1:1 rule, they have no choice but to sell at least one player of big name and value.

In his recent public appearances, Laporta has stated that he believes it will not be necessary to sell off any of their top players. But La Liga believes that Barça will continue to be stuck with the 40% rule otherwise.

In recent days, Barcelona have been in direct contact with La Liga president Javier Tebas to find out what room for manoeuvre they have, mainly in sporting matters.

It must be remembered that La Liga already made some concessions last summer, for example by accepting the registration of Inigo Martinez for a single season when the contract between the player and Barça is for two years.

The Catalan club hopes that La Liga will relax some of the rules next summer, which would be far from enough but would help.

Barça are counting on La Liga to lend a hand in some aspects, but at the same time, clearly there is a lot of homework that needs to be done.
