The FC Barcelona He only finds consolation, for now, in the Champions League, because everything else is going wrong. The draw against Alavés It was the fourth game in LaLiga without winning, where they have only added 2 points out of the last 12 possible. With the Real Madrid 8 and one less game, the ‘whir’ about the Koeman project.
The situation is not much better in the offices.

FC Barcelona is at a time of financial restructuring that has forced a negotiation between the first-team footballers (who take the largest amount of their budgets) and the managers to una drop in salaries of almost 30% of the total.
The reduction in income derived from the pandemic has caused an ultimatum that, according to RAC1, has a deadline: either a salary cut of 190 million is achieved before November 5, or there will be a bankruptcy. The culés coffers are not far from in a good situation, and many point out that the exploitation model is largely to blame.
Tusquets himself admitted it in his first appearance as interim president of Barça: “Our main concern is economic. The pandemic is affecting Barcelona especially. The club depends on tourism and now there isn’t. We have to collect the ideas of the previous meeting to remedy the ills that affect us. “

And all this, with a horizon in which it is seen as a more than real possibility that Leo messi, flag and banner of the team, leave the club next summer …
