Barcelona’s transfer market has surprised the world. The arrival of Lewandowski, Raphinha, Kessié, Christensen has excited their fans, not to mention the players who could arrive.

The American journalist Ben Jacops explained the situation that the Culé team is going through. A year ago, Barcelona made public its debt of 1.3 billion euros, and its commitment to pay it is to sell, spend, be successful and regain stability. It seems simple, but if it fails or makes a mistake, the team would be at risk of plunging into the worst crisis in its history.

In the short term, the team plans to sell 49.9% of their own marketing company. In the same way, sell 25% of your television income for the next 25 years. Namely, they will sell income they do not yet have, but will have in the future. It’s a faster way to get the money and it allows them to sign players at the rate they have.

The problem is that this approach cannot be had in every season. The investment they are making in the 2022 market is very important, because if it is unsuccessful, the team could be in debt for life. That is why it is essential that they can get players who contribute immediately to the club and who can leave income in the future.

In a nutshell, the Barcelona he is playing his last card to be able to solve his finances and sports success in the short term. They bet on returning to their glory days in the shortest possible time, aware that if they do not succeed, the money they obtained for this transfer market will not appear again.

Broadly speaking, this is Barcelona’s risky bet, which could save them from their millionaire debt or sink them deeper into it.
