Barcelona: Barcelona is running out of time
Ffollowing the loss of Lionel messi of the team, Barcelona sought to resolve their issues regarding LaLiga’s salary cap on players.
With the 2021/22 season about to begin, the Catalan club are running out of time and need to close deals at a rapid pace.
The club is looking to finalize loan releases for Miralem Pjanic and Samuel Umtiti to try to register their new signatures and Barcelona President Joan Laporta remain confident they will.
The Catalan giants are in contact with their veteran players as Gérard Piqué, Sergi Roberto, Sergio Busquets etc. to readjust their salaries and defer some to make ends meet.
Although discussions with the players are ongoing and progressing, they are struggling to meet everyone’s demands in such a short period of time, but the club remain confident that all requirements will be met.
Negotiations are intensifying between Pjanic and Juventus for a loan agreement although the finalization of the agreement is taking longer than expected.
Umtiti on loan
Talks are also underway between various clubs like Barcelona seek to unload Umtiti on a loan contract, with Benfica look for the most likely.
The club remain optimistic as they contemplate the 2021/22 season. They are not yet required to register Sergio Aguero until he recovers from his injury, but we can expect to see him again around November.
Back from Olympic duty from Tokyo 2020 Eric Garcia can rest rather than play the first game of the season, while Memphis depay looking to make his first start for the Spanish team.
