The big threat of Jorge Mendes to FC Barcelona


What’s next after this ad

Joan Laporta and his men may be working on the Messi track, but that doesn’t take away from the fact that FC Barcelona is in financial trouble. The bad news also seems to be piling up on this side in recent days, since the leader of La Liga has just learned that the decision-makers of the Spanish championship were not going to give him any gift and that they were not going to relax the rules of financial fair play for him.

In this situation, FC Barcelona must sell. And quite quickly if he wants to have an interesting margin of maneuver this summer. According to La Liga, the Ciudad Condal club must reduce its expenditure by 200 million euros, which necessarily implies a colossal drop in the wage bill of the workforce. And to carry out this degreasing, Joan Laporta will call on his friend, agent Jorge Mendes, who needs no introduction.

Two nuggets of Barça in danger

But his Portuguese friend risks playing a very bad trick on him… If he should help land a big sale for Ansu Fati – the Iberian press was talking about 70 million euros yesterday – the future of two other of his protégés will also be on the table during this meeting between the two men. It is Alejandro Baldé, the titular left side, and Lamine Yamal, the nugget of La Masia. And unlike Fati, the Catalan management have no intention of parting with him.

According to COPE Padlock, Jorge Mendes has big club offers on the table for Alejandro Baldé. And the discussions with Laporta for an extension and a revaluation promise to be tense given the situation of Barça, which has still not been able to register the new contracts of Gavi, Araujo or Sergi Roberto with La Liga… Similar scenario for Lamine Yamal, followed in particular by… Real Madrid. Suffice to say that Barça is clearly not in a position of strength in the negotiations, and that Mendes has enough to put pressure on. Barça fans can tremble.
