Barca financial crisis deepens; club set to offload a ‘number of players’

Barca’s annual spending ceiling has been further reduced by €66 million, dropping from €270 million to €204 million, signalling the urgent need for the club to offload players during the upcoming summer transfer window.

The Sun reports that players such as Frenkie de Jong, Robert Lewandowski, Gavi, Raphinha, Ronald Araujo, and Pedri are all potential candidates for sale, as they possess significant market value and command high wages.


This reduction comes after a previous slash of €400 million in September, underscoring the formidable challenge ahead for Barcelona as they strive to regain competitiveness in the transfer market.

Sources disclosed to ESPN that the club’s squad costs, which the cap regulates, exceed €400 million, more than double the limit imposed by La Liga.


Consequently, Barcelona faces stringent financial constraints, restricting them to spending only a percentage of their savings in salaries or transfer fees earned, with the percentage contingent upon the magnitude of the savings.
