La Liga giants Barcelona might now be forced to sign one of their high profile superstars in the near future, it has been recently reported. The reigning Spanish and European champions have been superb last season, winning the treble and have been quite well in the current campaign as well. Barca recently destroyed their fierce rivals Real Madrid in the league and their domination in the Champions League has also been worht praising. Despite that, the wages of some of the world-class superstars just might be too much for the club to keep paying on a regular basis.
According to the Daily Mail, it was stated that the issue could soon a major problem and the Catalan club might have to sell off one of their star players in the near future.
The stars in the forward line like Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez have huge wage packets at present, with the other members of the squad, a fair bit above the minimum wage as well.
The wage bill is at present‘crippling the club’ and is at 73 percent of total revenue that the club is making, which is huge for any top side in today’s world.
Also, the prize money for winning Europe’s top competition last season, meant that various bonus pay-outs had to be issued out to many of the players in the team.
The club is now looking for a new shirt sponsor and a sponsor for their stadium as well, in order to make more profits after the payments have been made to their stars.
Further, if they fail to find new ways of making more money soon, Messi or Neymar might be sold, with previous and current reported interests from clubs like Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City.
The English giants could be locked in an intense battle to acquire their targets soon, yet which one of them eventually leaves the Nou Camp or they both stay, remains to be seen.
