    I specifically said they clubs because there’s nothing Barcelona like to do more than complain about PSG or City and their finances, all the while they’re spunking hundreds of millions, while trying not to honour the contracts they gave certain players, like De Jong and Braithwaite.

    Turning into a horrendous football club. At least PSG and City don’t try and hide what sort of * they are.

    I'm struggling to see what Braithwaite is doing wrong here. Barca gave him a contract. He's well within his rights to stay at the club until his contract runs out. Barca's fault for giving a player, who was clearly never remotely good enough for that level, a long term deal.

    Sounds like Barca want to have their cake and eat it too.

    I love Barca (or should that be loved Barca) but the way they are acting is toxic as * and they should not be allowed to do it.

    Pay people what they are owed and don’t scatter gun cash left, right and centre until you’ve resolved your current obligations.

    It’s actually hun like TBH.

    You don’t know how contracts work, do you?

    Just keeps on blaming the previous regime. The regime which was put in place by the same members that put Laporta in.

    Despise them and everything they now stand for. Laporta with his constant little digs at Messi as well after he left. * a scum bag.

    Then the attempts to force players out of the club while owing them an absolute fortune in wages while hoping they don’t have to pay them the deferred wages back. Threatening legal action against these players who are refusing to take pay cuts. All while spending hundreds of millions of pounds on players and hundreds of millions more on new wages.

    You couldn’t write it.

    Then that * tries to tell you that you should just forget about the wages and leave town. However, if you want to stay in town, you’re going to need to lend him more money and forget about that too.

    This transfer window is hilarious reading.

    Chelsea and Man Utd both all over the place.

    Chelsea now finding their name linked with Aubameyang, De Jong even * links suggesting they are linked with Juranovic.

    State of those clubs man :56:

    Andreas Christensen and Franck Kessie could both leave Barcelona as free agents in the coming days if the club fails to register them before their La Liga opener against Rayo Vallecano on Saturday.

    Barça picked up Christensen and Kessie on free transfers following their departures from Chelsea and AC Milan respectively at the end of last season.




    But the club’s well-publicised ongoing financial difficulties mean that neither has yet been officially registered with La Liga. In what is becoming an alarming annual tradition, one that saw Lionel Messi forced to leave in 2021, Barça still need to create room within their strict salary cap.

    La Liga’s rules ensures that teams are not allowed to spend beyond their means on player wages, essentially club revenue minus other operational costs and debt repayments. Barça’s spending power under those regulations has been repeatedly slashed over the last few years.

    Unless Barça can cut costs or find additional revenue, they won’t have the ability to register the contracts agreed with Christensen or Kessie. And ESPN has now reported each player would have the power to walk away if they are left unregistered.

    Deals for Robert Lewandowski, Raphinha and Jules Kounde also haven’t been registered with La Liga, but they do not have the same freedom to leave because they didn’t arrive as free agents. Barça have also not yet registered new contracts for Ousmane Dembele or Sergi Roberto.




    President Joan Laporta is said to remain optimistic that all seven deals will be registered in time, but it is expected that Barça would still seek talks with the Christensen and Kessie camps to avoid such a drastic parting of ways if the first deadline is missed. Barça ultimately still have until the transfer window closes in three week to officially register all new signings.




    Further players sales could assist, with Frenkie de Jong the subject of pursuits from Manchester United and Chelsea, uncertainty over Memphis Depay and fresh rumours about Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang potentially being offloaded.

    Even the €600m of revenue, offset by €150m spent, raised so far this summer by selling off sizeable stakes in future earnings from domestic television rights and in-house media, isn’t thought to be enough to get everything registered now.

    At the end of last season, Barça’s permitted La Liga spending was -€144m, a bizarre figure that highlights the scale of the worsening annual saga.

    @FCBarca surely you find this whole situation a bit embarrassing and wrong?

    Refusing to pay De Jong what he is owed right now, and instead telling him he has to reduce his wages. Meanwhile spending millions upon millions on players. Selling off TV rights in a desperate attempt to stay competitive. Being unable to register new signings because the finances are a mess.

    And now scummy fans booing players for doing nothing wrong. De Jong and Braithwaite are well within their rights to stay put and not alter their contract. Why should they leave?

    Barca were a shining example of how to produce good players and play beautiful football only 10-15 years ago. Now they’ve essentially become a complete basket case with next to no redeeming qualities.

    The only thing they’ve yet to do is sell out to a Saudi consortium. But I have no doubt that’ll be coming at some point.

    Makes their deal for Nunes look like a bargain, basically a straight swap.

    Forest on course to spend above £150m this window. Hope they go down.
