Barcelona like many clubs at the moment, aren’t in the strongest of financial positions.
Pay cuts have had to be made, and it looks like players will need to prepare themselves for further cost-cutting measures this summer.
The club’s director of football, Mateu Alemany, spoke at new signing Eric Garcia’s presentation about the situation.
“Everyone at the club will have to make an effort to maintain its sustainability,” Alemany said.
The situation at the Camp Nou is worrying, so worrying in fact that new club president has applied for a 500-million-euro loan from Goldman Sachs, 100 million euros of which will be paid to the club before the end of this month.
The club’s total losses for this season are around 300 million euros, bringing their total to about 1.2 billion.
Players already took a financial hit last season to help the club and are going to have to prepare themselves to do the same again this campaign.
Some are upset however about having to save the club from this situation that they have brought on themselves, with huge sums of money paid for players who hardly play for example.
They feel it’s unfair that they’re expected to pay for mistakes made by those in charge of the club.
