Even without Messi's wages we are still at 95% Wages to Revenue. In order to register any new players we need to bring that down to 70%.

The only way that's happening is if we let Griezmann, Umtiti, Coutinho and Dembele go. But that doesn't seem very likely right now. So I'm not sure that there is much of a chance of registering these players yet.

That said, I agree hoping for a Messi/Covid exemption might have reasonable at some point, but I just don't see how you go from saying "a deal is almost reached" to "Messi can't stay" in 48 hours.

Its very difficult, we have to wait and see. I think the aim will or at least should be to lower the wages of guys we cannot sell and add more players to list of guys to sell. I cant understand keeping players like Roberto and Lenglet. I also expect Pjanic and Braithwaite to be added to your list.

As for the change in position within 48 hours, it makes sense to me.

It was unofficially announced a deal is reached with Messi, that was true.

Messi couldnt stay because the La Liga rules. Those are 2 separate things. Again, I think he expected La Liga to bend the rules.

Pique has renewed for 5 years at 50% pay. When he leaves he will be paid out the remainder of his contract. Similar deals are being worked on for Busi, Roberto and Alba.

It’s about time that futbolers caught on to longer term or deferred income! Business execs do it all the time. It started in Sports way back in 60s with a star goalie in hockey named Jacques Plante. He wanted the majority of his salary deferred to after his playing days. I suspect there is something like that going on in these Barca contract revisions.

Thats what messi was offered too, but they couldnt work it out with la liga. I wouldnt say it's footballers though, it's the club that is pushing for it.

On the surface it looks like an enormous cut, but its actually minimal given its a 5 year contract. Realistically, Pique, a 34 year old player, should be on a 1-2 year contract with KPIs to trigger an extension.

Just read Graham Hunters article about it on ESPN, sounds like its legit if it is to be believed, thats like millions actually given up by Pique....
