The FC Barcelona has published today the economic report in which the different debts that the culé team has with the rest of the European teams are detailed. It will be explained in great detail at the next shareholders’ meeting to be held on October 9.
The team from Barcelona still owes 144 million euros to different clubs throughout the continent for the different signings it has made in recent years, while these teams owe the Catalans 16 million.
There are two amounts owed that are quite striking. Starting with the 14 million that Barça has to pay to Liverpool for the signing of Philippe Coutinho in 2018. This operation was closed almost five years ago and the Catalans have not yet completed the payment. The other surprising debt is that of Ferran Torres, since Barça has only paid 3 million, of the 55 agreed in the last winter market, to Manchester City. He has a season and a half to settle accounts with the citizens, as agreed.
Ajax in Amsterdam would have to be paid 42 million euros: 32 as a result of the signing of Frenkie de Jong in 2019 and another 10 for Sergiño Dest in 2020. The midfielder was very close to leaving this summer, while the American headed to Milan in the last days of the transfer market on loan. Finally De Jong decided to continue in the ranks of FC Barcelona.
Juventus are also owed 36 million euros for that famous exchange between Miralem Pjanic and Arthur Melo in the summer of 2020. In addition, as for the Brazilian, he still owes 7.5 million euros to Gremio.
Finally, Wolverhampton will have to grant 6 million euros to the Catalans for the transfer of Francisco Trinçao.
