Barcelona are in big debts, water enters the rocking ship from all sides while Joan Laporta tries to put Blaugrana on their feet and "get rid" of the legacy of his predecessor - Josep Maria Bartomeu. The first man of the Catalan club tried to keep Lionel Messi at the Camp Nou this summer - he failed.
The same outcome was with Ilaix Moriba. But, in Barcelona, they are not giving up on new contracts for future superstars. In the sea of bad news, a dose of hope is finally appearing at Camp Nou. Barcelona have marked three players, they are tireless leaders of the Catalan club in an effort to extend the contracts with Pedri, Ansu Fati and Ousman Dembele.
It seems that the progress in the negotiations has been made and that in October, the Blaugrana could finish a great job. For more than a month, the leaders of Barcelona have been negotiating with the agents of one of the most talented players on the Old Continent.
Pedri is among the players who earn the least in Barcelona, and that will change with the signing of a new contract. Of course, in accordance with Barcelona's possibilities. Pedri allegedly agreed to the offered conditions, he believes the club's management in the long-term project of rebuilding Barcelona and laying good foundations.
And that's not the only good news coming from the Pyrenees. After 10 months of recovery, Ansu Fati returns to the field. The boy, who originated in La Massia, is expected to have a brilliant career, he was projected to be the successor of Lionel Messi and marked as someone who should take the top ten.
At the same time, Barcelona is working on reducing the salaries of the natives. It's not that easy to do, harder than Joan Laporta and his associates thought it would be. But, when Gerard Pique, Jordi Alba, Sergio Busquets and Sergi Roberto agreed in principle to have their salaries reduced, it is expected that their example will be followed by Brazilians Coutinho and Neto, as well as the French defender Umtiti.
Barcelona plans to meet again with the agents of the three mentioned football players and start a new round of negotiations. However, the big question is whether they will be successful, because the Brazilians were the loudest when the salary cut was proposed, due to the corona virus pandemic.
They categorically rejected that possibility. They did not find a new club, they stayed at Camp Nou and they are hoping in Barcelona that this time they will be able to soften them and thus minimally alleviate the difficult financial situation.
