Barcelona will have to reportedly pay combined 100 million to sign Joao Felix and Joao Cancelo on permanent deals. However, they will again face problems with Financial Fair Play rules.
Hence, there is a feeling that the Spanish giants could sign only one of them. They will have to again make a loan bid for the other one next summer.
FC BARCELONA WILL HAVE TO PAY MEGA FEES FOR THEIR IN FORM LOAN PLAYERS
According to reports, Barcelona will have to at least spend 100 million to sign Joao Felix and Joao Cancelo on permanent deals next summer. The duo are currently on loan from Atletico Madrid and Manchester City respectively. A report also claims that the Spanish giants have managed to sign them for a zero loan fee for the rest of the season.
Barcelona are currently only paying their wages for the season. However, Joao Cancelo and Joao Felix have reduced their wages to join the La Liga giants. They have taken pay-cuts to make sure that the Spanish giants signed them and registered them to play. The duo have also said in their respective interview that the move was a dream coming true for them.
THE SPANISH GIANTS HAVE MANAGED TO DRASTICALLY REDUCE THEIR WAGE BILL THIS SEASON
Barcelona have managed to drastically reduce their wage bill this season. The current wage bill for the season stands at 404 million. Whereas, the wage bill for the lasts season was 566 million. Hence, there is improvement in their financial situation. However, La Liga have instructed them to spend even less for January next summer.
La Liga want Barcelona to bring down their wage bill to 270 million. The La Liga giants are trying to make it possible by selling players of the academy. However, they also insert buy back clauses and 50 % sell on clauses in the deals for future profits. The club have also started renting out their stadium for events and weddings for extra profits.
Hence, Barcelona will hope that they can negotiate some sort of agreement next season for in-form Joao Cancelo and Joao Felix. The players have also said in their respective interviews that they want to sign here permanently from the next season. They are also ready to take wage cuts for the move.
