Erling Haaland cannot go to Barcelona: La Liga rules out that FC Barcelona can sign the Norwegian in his current situation


LaLiga, employers of Spanish football clubs, ruled out that Barcelona can make a signing like that of the Norwegian Erling Haaland after setting its workforce cost limit at -144.35 million, unless it reduces its spending or generates any type of capital gain that is reflected in its income statement.

鈥淏arcelona, 鈥嬧媡o make signings, like fourteen other clubs, currently has to reduce its spending. Like the rest of the clubs that have exceeded their limit, the way to recover it is by having capital gains, either with CVC or with other assets, it is the only way to do it, 鈥漵aid Javier G贸mez, corporate general director of LaLiga.

Following the publication this Monday of the cost limits for the sports squad of LaLiga clubs, once the winter transfer period is over, G贸mez specified that in the case of Barcelona, 鈥嬧嬧嬧媡he only one that appears with a negative limit of First Division, 242 million fewer losses had been estimated than those registered.

The director of LaLiga responded to the question of how Bar莽a鈥檚 situation could change if it signed the agreement signed with the CVC investment fundwhich he has opposed together with Real Madrid and Barcelona, 鈥嬧媌ut ruled out a different treatment from the rest of the clubs that have signed him.

鈥淭reatment of favor there will not be. What the clubs have approved to date with CVC says that 15% is to restructure debt, 15% for players and 70 percent for growth. If it鈥檚 300 million, 15% is 45 million, that鈥檚 what would improve your limit, and Barcelona, 鈥嬧媐or example, instead of -144 would have minus 100 or 99鈥, he indicated.

G贸mez insisted that any change regarding what was signed with CVC would have to be made with the clubs, 鈥淎lways bearing in mind that there is a partner that also has a voice in this matter鈥, which is the investment fund.

He also recalled that Barcelona and fourteen other First Clubs are hiring according to article 100 of the economic control regulationso they can only spend 25% of what they save or what they get from transfers to sign.

鈥淵ou are allowed to contract but only for a percentage of what you save. If he has a workforce of 400 million, we have to force him to save, but we let him continue hiring. If he takes off 100 we let him hire 25, but with the aim of filling the pantry. It can be with a sponsorship, with the sale of an asset, of a player or anything that is recorded in the profit account, 鈥漢e maintained.

Regarding the incorporation of four players in the winter market by the Bar莽a club, G贸mez pointed out that this season this 25% expense linked to savings has been allowed to be 50%, in addition to the fact that the acquisition of Ferran Torres affects mid-season and it is also joined by the departure of the Argentine Sergio Ag眉ero from the club for health reasons, the departure of the Brazilian Coutinho and savings with the renewal of Samuel Umtiti鈥檚 contract.
