Barcelona as a club is such a huge brand, one that still attracts top talents despite the number of scandals each investigation uncovers every time one is ran, bit how is the club getting away with most of the madness they perpetrate?
An inside look into the summer dealings of the Catalan giants leave people confused as to how the club manages to pull off the sort of appeal that made players like Joules Kounde, Andreas Christensen, Ousman Dembele and Raphinha ignore the prospects of playing or continuing at Chelsea for a shot at or renewed stints at Barca.
There are unconfirmed rumours that some of the players the club signed over the summer, including Frank Yannick Kessie and the Dane from Chelsea could become free agent in the coming days if the club is unable to register them.
Whether that is true or false, you can’t deny that Barcelona is a horribly ran club.
The Athletic reported earlier in the week that the club has decided to investigate the contracts given to Marc Andre Ter Stegen, Frenkie De Jong and a few more in the last two years and could rescind the terms.
The news reeks of blackmail as the club tries to force some players out to free up wage bill.
Another news is the potential transfer of Pierre Emerick Aubameyang or Memphis Depay out of the club in order to be able to register players.
The economic levers the club activated recently only made some money available to spend but not applicable to the wage book balance.
In all of these, the club is still engaging Chelsea for Marcos Alonso and Manchester City for Bernardo Silva.
It is clear that many of the players don’t want to leave because they’re enjoying the mega money and the pride of playing for one of the biggest clubs in Europe but how sustainable is the model at Nou Camp?
Xavi Hernandes might be a top force in dragging players to the club but what happens if La Liga hammer lands on them?
They can challenge for title with the materials they have but will they be able to register most of their new signings?
The club is looking like a laughing stock already but someone has to halt the rot at Barcelona.
