Before the new season, Barcelona’s situation on a number of fronts is not very clear. Catalonians have a lot of connections in the transfer market, but the fact that they always take too long to carry out transactions makes people wonder about their economy.
Joan Laporta says Barcelona can register players this summer
Also, La Liga’s long review of the plan’s ability to make money did not help the Blaugranas. At the time, it’s not clear how many players Barcelona needs to sell in the next month or how many players they can sign.
In a meeting with the club senators earlier today, Joan Laporta, the president of FC Barcelona, talked about all of these things and gave the most recent information about the situation. As SPORT reported, he first talked about the sports conditions and the goals for the coming season.
“We’ve reached our goal, but we still want more. I was the first. We have high standards because we run the best club in the world. We work hard to improve the first team. We want to win everything and enter all tournaments with a good chance of doing so.
Laporta then brought up the big issue and talked about the club’s wage bill and filing power. He said that not everything was fine, but he gave the crowd reasons to be hopeful.
“We’ve cut the pay bill, but the players’ worth has gone up. We have a refreshed and more competitive work force. We’re going in the right direction. La Liga has given the plan for the next two years the green light. We’ll be able to sign people up.”
The Negreira case allegations from earlier this season hurt the Catalan giants’ image. The president said that there was never anything wrong about the deals that were made.
“We have never used La Liga to get a better deal in a court case. There is no wrongdoing. It was done in a clear and open way, with bills, bank transfers, and entries in the books to show what happened. No one has ever wanted to hide anything.”
Since Spotify Camp Nou is getting fixed up, the Azulgranas will play their games next season at the Montjuic Stadium. He said that the Espai Bara project was the “best gift” he could give to the next generation.
“The Espai Bara project doesn’t put sports policy at risk, nor does it put the club’s assets on the line. “The new Spotify Camp Nou and the new Palau are the best things we can leave to our children and grandchildren,” Laporta said.
Laporta also had some words of support for the Barcelona women’s team, which just won the UEFA Women’s Champions League in a thrilling comeback win in the finals earlier this month.
