Koeman staying on as manager for next season.

Him staying on will probably confirm the signings of Depay and Wijnaldum.

Club also confirmed today that Jordi Cryuff will be joining the club, in some capacity, in August.

Dembélé out for 3 months. His contract is up at the end of the next season, if I´m not wrong. 

I have no idea what Barcelona should do in this case. He´s young and the potential is still there, it´s the kind of the player you hate losing for free, but at the same time it feels like that all parties could benefit from a change of scenario.

He has tremendous natural talent in terms of skill and dribbling ability, but his end product is woeful and he's very inconsistent. Not to mention, all it takes is a gust of wind and he's injured and he has a poor attitude on top of that. For me, it's time to get rid if possible. His contract also runs out next year and it doesn't seem like he has any desire to renew.

With Fati back and looking physically in great shape, the signing of Depay and Collado deserving to step up to the first team, it's probably for the best to get rid of Dembèlè.

He needs a chance. It's time to prioritise La Masia and bringing in young talent like Pedri and Dest, and get rid of the deadwood.

It also helps bringing in a bit of experience like Agüero, as he's not being brought in as first choice, but more to add depth and experience like Larsson back in the mid-00s.

The problem at Barcelona isn't a lack of young talent, but the economic problems, which could lead some of these young players in leaving the club. But if hadn't been for the erratic transfer policy under Bartomeu, spending ridiculous amounts of money on crap, then the problem wouldn't be as severe in the first place.

La Masia is among the best youth set ups in world football and is proven to produce success. That along with bringing in some top scouts to find young talent is the way forward for the club for me.

I recommended clicking the link and reading this entire thread. It's absolutely incredible, Barcelona are an absolute shambles financially. Truly scary stuff, how did get this bad?!

How are they still over the salary cap with Messi not being signed right now?  I don't believe for a second that Lionel Messi makes the club more money than they pay him. How is this possible? Do they have 100% image rights of him? Otherwise wouldn't he be earning the commercial revenue generated from his image? If Lionel Messi is sponsored by Adidas how do Barcelona make money from that? How does Barcelona make money from him being in Lays commercials?

Maybe they mean as a whole? You probably can’t quantify the money they get from sponsorships associated to the club because they have Messi on the books, or maybe even the tourism he brings to the club on a yearly basis that spend money on matchday ticket packages?

Yusuf Demir also scored, I hear. You'll going to have a lot of fun with him.

He's another young player with alot of potential and talent in the squad(which he is showing in pre season), as you have already said about him from his time at Rapid Viena, before making the move to Camp Nou. He's only 18 but Pedri and Fati(before injury) were both first team regulars last season at the same age, so now is a better time than ever for younger players to get chances.

Collado has gone out on loan, which means Yusuf will likely be part of the 1st team next season. Koeman seems to love him and he's impressed in pre season.

I'm a big fan myself. I think Rapid Wien did a great job by developing him, not rushing him and not hyping him up too much. He joined them when he was 10 years old I think, and then he made all the way from their youth setups to the first team, where they slowly integrated him into the squad and let him adapt to grown-up football with no pressure and no huge expectations. Now he gets to make the next step, develop further and learn from better teammates. Hope he can impress during the actual season and Barca will activate the clause to buy him. For 10million, he's surely a steal. Just hope Rapid get some sort of sell on clause into it, as well.

Very promising signs last night in the Gamper trophy Vs Juventus, albeit it only being a friendly cup.

Depay scored another and assisted one. He also put on a show at times with the flicks and tricks. It looks like @El Profesor could be right about him being a very good signing. He's a different player to the one at Man United.

Araújo had Cristiano in his back pocket.

The team dominated possession and must have had 70% of it, this without Pedri and de Jong.

Fati is close to coming back as well. 

Alot of young talent for the future. It'll take a few years of development and rebuilding(and financial issues to solve) but this team will be back.

Yusuf assisted Depay's goal and again impressed. Who needs Messi? ph34r.png@nudge

The biggest issue now is renewing Pedri and Fati as both contracts run out next year and keeping those 2 is even more important than keeping Messi was, considering his age. These 2 are players who need to be built around for the future, along with the beast Araújo, Dest, de Jong and hopefully Eric Garcia and Emerson. 

There are also talented players in the youth who have played in pre season but not proven themselves in competitive games yet. Balde, Nico, Gavi, or of course recent signing, Yusuf Demir. 

I actually think Barcelona will surprise people in the very near future, barring the financial situation is resolved and the club don't fold of course. It's certainly worrying.

Laporta revealed that the club are £1.15b in debt!

Is there a chance the club will have to go into administration (or whatever the Spanish equivalent is) and start again?

Barça sold Emerson to Tottenham for a fee of 30 million euros. 

They bought him from Betis this summer and turned into a profit. Considering that they have already Dest at RB and the financial position of the club, it's a good deal. 

 

 

 

The other big news involving Barça today is that their attempt to sign João Felix on a loan. 

I like it a lot for Barça but I'm not entirely sure Atleti will agree.
