Barça needs to reduce its salary mass to be able to renew the Argentine star.
There are many footballers who charge an exorbitant amount of money compared to their low contribution:
There was talk during the last week that it is very likely that Barça will grant the freedom letter to Miralem Pjanic, just one year after Bartomeu paid 70 million euros to attract the Bosnian to the Camp Nou, in an operation highly criticized by the cules. The only intention of the former president of Barça was to balance accounts.
Despite being one of the captains of the first team, his level has dropped too much in recent seasons. Four years ago all Barça fans thought it would be the future of the right-back, but little by little they have come to realize that this is not their position and that their defensive errors in that area have come to cost the team dearly.
Taking into account that Barça has just signed Éric García and assuming that Gerard Piqué, Ronald Araújo and Óscar Mingueza are ahead of the French, it is more than likely that the board will look for a way out for him. His first seasons at the Camp Nou were not as bad as this last one, but it seems very difficult for him to regain his highest level.
The French central must leave Barça yes or yes. The problem is that there is no team willing to pay the high record of a center-back like Umtiti so prone to injuries. It seems that the only solution that Barcelona has is to wait for his contract to end or to deliver him the letter of freedom.
It is more a reality than a rumor. The future of Coutinho and Barcelona are increasingly separated. The Brazilian footballer is one of the most expensive signings in the history of football and at no time has he given the feeling that he could settle into the team.
Although his level this season has been above expectations, Griezmann’s problem is that it is the last year to be able to take advantage of his signing. Next year he will turn 31 and at that age it is very difficult to achieve a successful sale.
The Danish, who was eliminated yesterday from the Eurocup, has all the ballots to go to the Premier League. In that transfer, Barça could get around 20 million euros that would come in handy for Messi’s renewal.
