Part of the problem is that covid really impacted revenues while wages remained constant. In a normal year we probably would be alright by now in the revenues to wages ratio.

The other part is that the ratio takes into account amortized transfer fees , which don't go away even if you sell the player.

Oh. Didn't realize it included amortized transfer fees. If that's the case, then it's just accounting. Should improve over the next 2 years. Cash flow should be much better which is the much bigger problem.
A much better ratio would be wages/operating cash flow.

Laporta did well so far in offloading players. Would be great if he could do so with Coutinho and Umtiti too. the squad would be thin but they are not going to play in any way. Hope we get more good news during the January transfer.

Also could see a midfield of FDJ, Pedri, Olmo in home games. I know coaches seem to think DM is not FDJ's best position. But playing pivot would enable him to utilize his best asset. Breaking lines with his excellent dribbling from deep.
Alternatively FDJ could play in the back 3 and Olmo in midfield. All sorts of combinations in midfield I feel. Plus Olmo has played in the forward line as well. With Ansu and Dembele having question marks , can play Olmo on the wing.
I don't agree with the price either BTW. Time to get him was before the Leipzig move. He went relatively cheap. But if we are looking for a goal scoring midfielder who is also good technically, Olmo is a pretty good option.

Good argument, didnt really see it that way but I agree. Like you said, relatively cheap it would make some good sense. This is also why I wanted us to push for Van De Beek if it was at all possible this summer, even if on loan.

Along these lines, we really need to change the way we have signed players. Nothing at all wrong with spending money on top quality players, but those guys really need to be undoubted top quality. It is almost impossible for Olmo to prove his worth if the transfer is at that 70m mark.

I think these 2 are by a distance the most difficult.

Neither have proven themselves as top players in about 2-3 seasons and are yet, paid as such.

I can only see Umititi going if he choses to take a pay cut to join Ligue 1.

Coutinho similarly to Serie A.

Reports Umtiti has agreed to a wage reduction. If that's true, and the Pjanic wage reduction and the captains wage reduction is also true, would have to say job well done by LaPorta.
Lot of ifs as I am still taking the rumors of Pjanic and the captains wage reduction with a grain of salt. Still, seems like progress towards implementing a wage structure. The challenge is to institutionalize the wage structure and make laws so that we are not put in the same situation again.
Second challenge is securing CL. Little nervous now that Griezman has also left. Sole goal for the season and next has to be CL spots. If we can finish in the CL spots over the next 2 seasons while maintaining current wage structure, would drastically improve our financial position.
Hope we don't prioritize the Copa with a thin squad. Entire focus has to be the league.

Would you say something like a self imposed salary cap?

Yes, something similar to Madrid who don't blow up their wage structure.
I believe Barca has something in the laws that wages can't go beyond a certain limit but you can always manipulate using clever accounting. So, I don't know how to go about institutionalizing a wage structure. Maybe, have an independent firm audit market wage rates each year and have our wage structure strictly in line with market rates and a certain percentage of revenue each year.
Otherwise, I fear this could repeat in the future as well.

Sounds like you’re growing interested in an arsenal youth player
https://www.football-espana.net/2021/09/17/barcelona-linked-with-arsenal-teen-star-charlie-patino

17 years old, midfielder. Most recent performance: (better to judge from a match comp than highlights)


But would you pick him over a Gavi though?

Looks quality, very elegant. I'm impressed but its impossible to truly judge after 2-3 games, they're very young and raw players. Patino seems physically better though. Theres plenty of playing time to go around in Barca B and the first team so I wouldnt mind having both of course, you never know which one can handle pressure better when thrown in the into lions den. So basically there's enough room for both Gavi and others like Charlie.

Dani Alves open to return if called upon.

I'd do it without hesitation. His influence on the young guys would be great, he has the right mindset and I know the locker room will be better with him in there.

The rumor is they'll not going to go through with it but the logical thing would be to sign him on a free and ideally drop Roberto renewal talks. Its time to move him on.

Yep. Apperently they don't want to interfere with Dest and Mingueza, which is a bit of a silly way of looking it considering

A. We had Emerson Royal set to rotate with Dest with no intention of selling.

B. Dani Alves isn't going to demand to play alot at this stage of his career. I'd argue him just being there helps those 2 players as much as anyone.
