This will be the final traca of the Barça market: endorsement, Cancelo, Íñigo, Joao Félix…

Joao Félix and Joao Cancelo.

Barcelona faces some frenetic last hours of the market. There are many open folders that are intertwined with each other. And in the Sports Management they do not know very well how far they can go due to the problems with Financial Fair Play. Some of the operations are safe, but there are others that hang by a thread before they can be carried out.

The arrival of money
The first of all is the 20 million that the Libero fund has to contribute for the purchase of Barça Vision. They can arrive via Libero, which is already late in paying this amount, or through the guarantee that Joan Laporta is preparing. The president is doing all the paperwork, but also waiting for the millions from the fund to arrive and thus save the money that the guarantee represents. The inscriptions
Once this money arrives, whether in the form of cash or a guarantee, the club will get to work to close the pending files. The first step will be the registration of Íñigo Martínez. The club activated Iñaki Peña’s contract on Wednesday, and now it is the Basque central defender’s turn. The club will not bring in any other players without those who already have a valid contract being registered.

Cancelo’s transfer
Next up is the loan of João Cancelo. There has not yet been a formal offer to Manchester City that will not be made until the money has arrived. Mendes has already taken it upon himself to speak with the English club to find out under what conditions the winger could come out. But that has to be reflected, and the amounts could suffer some variation, although the club does not expect changes. At the same time, the departures of Lenglet and Ansu Fati that generate Fair Play will be officially confirmed.

Joao Félix, in the spotlightOnce Cancelo’s transfer is closed, we will have to see if there is enough money to be able to bring in Joao Félix, who is the next objective. The club trusts that there will be one, but they are not 100% sure. If it were possible, they would bring him on loan and the Barça market would be closed except for a last-minute surprise. If there were no Fair Play, the club would consider the departure of another player who has offers such as Abde, Eric García and Marcos Alonso.

A new exit
All three have offers from clubs that would like to incorporate them. The case of Marcos Alonso seems closed because, although Manchester United has requested it, the player prefers to stay and fulfill his contract with Barcelona. The thing seems to be between Abde and Eric García. At the Fair Play level, the departure of the latter would benefit the Fair Play club in question more. But in the outings, Xavi’s opinion is also fundamental.
