I expect Barcelona to go the way of Parma if they can't find a sustainable answer to their financial crisis. It would take a financial genius to thrash out a deal with the banks to restructure the debt. If it stays as it is, they will never sign a player again for more than €10 million. Woodward would be good at this. lol.

The players are already on pay cuts and Messi's salary has been revealed, which highlights their enormous monthly outgoings.

Their one saving grace is that they own their stadium and training ground. They had hoped to invest hundreds of millions in both of them, but that can't happen now.

Do you realise just how dire their finances are?

They better hope that they can find a buyer for Messi who can pay him close to whay he was on. Their transfers over the next few years will have to be very shrewd signings like Pedri. They won't be able to sign elite youngsters like Haaland, Sancho, etc.

Because of other leagues inability to compete with The PL, I can see this European Super League happening sooner than later. It's the answer for Barcelona.

If it doesn't happen, they are doomed.

 

They will restructure their debt and sort it out.  The banks won't decimate Barca because they are owed too much money and won't want to write it off. It will be restructured, somehow, someway. No doubt they will have problems, won't be dominating etc but they are too big to fall even the way United have, never mind Parma.

You'll see. 

But I agree about a super league.

hearing Messi put in one of his greatest ever performances, creating 4 goals and breaking the record for key passes in a match?

GOAT @TFIA

Weirdest game I ever watched.

They were 2-0 down heading into the 88th minute, despite over 70% and 10 shots on target.

Griezmann scored brace & assisted two.

No crisis?

Catalan police say they have made four arrests after searching the offices of Spanish side Barcelona.

The identity of those involved have not yet been confirmed by police, who said their investigation is continuing.

The police operation was conducted on Monday after an investigation into financial issues at Barcelona.

Would love to see pep go there now and try to turn it around. See what he's capable of at a cash strapped club.

No sane top manager would take that on.

Arteta is being linked with the job. He has nothing to lose, in comparison.

Title race is back on.

Atletico 63

Madrid 57

Barcelona 56 with a game in hand.

Complete bottle job from Atlético.

They took 54 points from 63 (21 games), and have only only won 2 of their last 6 games.

Also lost at home to Chelsea in The CL.

17 La Liga games unbeaten

11 wins in their last 12

In the Copa Del Rey final

Messi to stay

Debt refinanced with a 400m credit note 

"The next Parma" - @O

It's been a great March for them if you take away the CL exit.

Ole has gone over a year undefeated in the league btw.

Messi has once again saved them with some immortal football in 2021. 17 goals & 7 assists this year. And he's scoring more goals from outside the box at a better rate than ever before. They are finished when his age eventually catches up with him. It's taken genuine freakish numbers to turn the tide.

Debt is far from settled. The work only begins now for Laporta. Messi can still leave for PSG if the transfers coming in this summer don't please him. Rumoured to want Agüero and Wijnaldum on free transfers (but both would have high salaries and are 30+). Not ideal.

I think Laporta coming back as president is a good start.

So you were wrong? ?
