Journalist Helena Condis has said that sources close to FC Barcelona have confirmed that the team is not at all surprised by looking at the exceeding salary bill. In fact, the team had already anticipated this scenario in advance.
The reporter adds that the club’s current aim is to return to the usual 1:1 rule next summer with increased income.
For that, though, Barcelona need an immediate financial injection and president Joan Laporta is certain that the team will get the €40 million Libero this month.
Earlier today, La Liga announced the salary caps for all teams and not to anyone’s surprise, Barcelona found themselves with a reduced salary limit of €270 million.
Interestingly enough, the limit was €656 million for Barça in September 2022 and €648 million in February 2023 and the figure has dropped massively for the 2023/24 season.

The salary budget cap for the 2023/2024 season post-summer transfer window signifies the absolute ceiling for expenditures that every club is allowed to incur.
This includes budget encompasses outlays on players, the head coach, the assistant coach, and the physical trainer of the primary team.
Additionally, it also blankets the budgetary provisions for subsidiary squads, nurturing the growth of emerging talents, and a plethora of other sectors nestled within the club’s organizational framework.
While La Liga has set the salary cap at €270 million for Barcelona for 2023/24, the club’s current wage bill is in the north of €400 million, exceeding the limit by close to 49%.
As such, they will be allowed to use only 50% of any revenue generated or wages freed up to spend on strengthening the squad.
At this moment, there is no panic within the Barcelona corridors as they seem to have a plan in place to reach a situation where they will be back to the 1:1 rule for next summer.
