Despite the improvement on the field, the situation off the field for Barcelona is not good. This is because, according to information from the Spanish newspaper Sport, which calculated the debts relating to player signings. The total value reaches 207 million euros (or more than 219 million in dollars).
Therefore, the player for whom the club owes the most money is the Brazilian Raphinha. Leeds, from England, should still receive 24 million euros in the short term, and another 38 in the future.
Bayern Munich, for Lewandowski, Manchester City, for Ferrán Torres, Ajax, for Frenkie de Jong, and Sevilla, for Koundé, are other clubs awaiting significant payments from Barcelona.
With this, short-term debts are a priority. Because, if they don’t pay, the club runs the risk of being sued and being prevented from hiring reinforcements.
Something that would hinder a possible acquisition of João Cancelo and João Félix permanently, who arrived in the last transfer window, for example.
With two games and two wins and in first place in their Champions League group, Barcelona occupies third place in the Spanish Championship.
Those led by Xavi Hernández remain undefeated, but have three points less than leaders Real Madrid and are still behind Girona, the surprise of the competition.
