“What is my salary to re-sign Messi?” Barca’s squad exploded with dissatisfaction
There are many problems to be solved if FC Barcelona wants to recruit Lionel Messi (35, PSG) again.
Messi was recently spotted in Barcelona. A video of Messi riding a bicycle in front of his home in Barcelona was widely circulated through local media. Messi also met with his former Barcelona teammates Sergio Busquets and Jordi Alba.
This is a pointㅋㅋㅋ벳 that draws attention at this point. Messi left Barcelona two years ago and moved to Paris Saint-Germain (PSG). At the time, Barcelona fans cried and held on to Messi, but Barcelona had no choice but to leave Messi with tears due to the deteriorating financial situation of the club. Messi also shed tears at the farewell press conference.
Messi’s contract with PSG expires in June this year. At the end of the 2022-23 season, Messi will become a free agent (FA) again. At the point when news spread that Messi could return to his home team Barcelona, Messi was caught riding a bicycle in Barcelona, thrilling fans.
Unlike Barcelona fans, the squad has to consider practical issues. When Barcelona sign Messi, they have to cut the salaries of existing players. From the standpoint of the existing players, it is like accepting Messi as a teammate by reducing their own salary.
Spanish media ‘Sport’ said on the 27th (Korean time), “Barcelona has to cut 200 million euros (about 295 billion won) in annual salary because it has to comply with FFP (Financial Fair Play) regulations. Frank Kessie and Andreas Christensen, who joined Barcelona as free agents last year, expressed their opposition to the cut in their salaries. The position of the other players is still unknown.”
Barcelona is planning to reduce the number of players and cut salaries regardless of whether or not to re-sign Messi. That’s how the financial situation got worse. Here, the issue of Messi’s re-entry was raised. It seems difficult for Messi to wear the Barcelona uniform again without the sacrifice of existing players.
