After splashing a fortune on signing six top-quality players in the month of July, Barcelona are now facing an uncertain period as they look to register all of their new signings ahead of the 2022/23 campaign.

Barcelona have activated three economic levers in order to not only repay the soaring debts but also help them with the squad planning for the season ahead.

And with the club now struggling to get rid of players such as Frenkie de Jong and Memphis Depay, another economic lever has been approved, in the form of 25% of Barça’s Studio.

The sale of the asset could go a long way in helping Barcelona further enhance its economic situation, although it may not help them register all the new players, as per reports from COPE.

The Spanish news outlet has offered great depth to Barça’s economic situation, suggesting the club are still in trouble due to financial uncertainty over the three levers that have been utilised so far.

It argues that even a fourth economic lever may not solve the issue as the club already had a wage deficit of €144 million, at a time when the workforce expenses were already as high as €560 million.

It means the Catalans are yet to recover their deficit and may not register all the new players even after activating the fourth lever.

Their last option for salvation, therefore, will be to sanction the sale of a few more unwanted players in the team. The departure of Neto is already being discussed while the club must step up their efforts to offload de Jong and Depay.

Both the Dutchmen could generate significant revenue, potentially helping Barcelona register all the new signings ahead of the new season.
