Barca: Jordi Cruyff quells transfer window rumors due to new financial fair play

Like the winter transfer window, FC Barcelona should be one of the most active clubs in the transfer market this summer. If too many names are announced in Catalonia, Jordi Cruyff wanted to put these rumors to rest, indicating that nothing would be done before learning more about financial fair play.

Robert Lewandowski, Erling Haaland, Lucas Hernandez … Many iconic names were announced on the shelves of FC Barcelona. Even though the Catalan club wants to start a new cycle by offering its coach Xavi a more complete workforce, the second in La Liga must take several parameters into account.


Especially the financial aspect, as all these tracks are expensive. An observation of which the club’s technical advisor is fully aware of Jordi Cruyff. In remarks made by Cope, the leader explains that he will focus on recruiting “when we are (financially) fair game on what is possible and what is not.”

It should be remembered that during this month of April, the UEFA Executive Committee unveiled new financial fair play rules that will come into force next June. A new format where clubs will be allowed to present a large deficit while limiting the wage bill.

“Find the balance in all lines of the team”

Although he declined to name names, Cruyff is aware that the team needs fresh blood to be competitive in the Champions League again, and hopes to fight for the Spanish title in the future. “I think the most important thing is to find balance in all the lines of the team.”

In addition to future arrivals, Barca must take into account players who will arrive at the end of the contract. Especially Gavi (June 2023) and Ousmane Dembele (June 2022) who are absolute holders in Xavi’s mind. One component the leaders will look at: “In the coming weeks, we will work on the continuation of the players we have”, as specified by Cruyff.
