“Barcelona has a sting: signs of a rough diamond at Camp Nou”

“Barcelona has a sting: signs of a rough diamond at Camp Nou”

Barcelona is having a strong season so far. The club is fully in contention to win the group in the Champions League and continues to follow in the footsteps of the leading duo in the Spanish League. However, relocation plans are already being made behind the scenes.

In the summer of 2022, the Barcelona board used all kinds of accounting structures to ensure the necessary acquisitions. In this way, much of the future income, such as television money and commercial rights, was sold. Partly for this reason, the club has been able to spend millions on acquisitions such as Robert Lewandowski, Rafinha and Jules Kounde.

Creative acquisitions

But this was a one-time income, so the budget was tight last summer. So Barcelona had to be “creative” when recruiting new players. For example, Ilkay Gundogan and Inigo Martinez were signed on free transfers after their contracts expired, while Oriol Romeu came from Girona for a very limited fee.

At the end of the Mercato, Joao Felix and Joao Cancelo were included on loan from Atletico Madrid and Manchester City, respectively. In addition, long-term work has already been completed. This is how Barcelona obtained the services of Vitor Roque. The Brazilian golden logo will begin operation in Catalonia in the summer of 2024.

Atom of money

However, it doesn’t stop there, as the defending Spanish champions were handed another diamond. Various Spanish sources mention this, e.g Gigantis The young Malian Ibrahim Diarra has committed himself to the Catalans.

Diarra is a 16-year-old striker who can play in midfield and on the wings. He is known as one of Africa’s greatest talents and is also the captain of his country’s youth national team. The Malian is said to have trained with Barcelona’s youth teams several times. However, his final transfer will not take place until 2024.
