Sounds like PSG jumping ahead.

They've enforced them for all the smaller teams strictly so if barca got away with this it would rightly be an outrage.Fucking cheek of Barca going in on La Liga for having rules and daring to adhere to them.....
You've had it all your own way for decades you spoiled cunts!
Now they they're objecting to the new investment in the league (cos they fear it evening the playing field) in favour of continuing to push for the ESL?????
Fucking hate modern football.
Coutinho /dembele /Grizeman and wages to replace him...When I sit down and review recent history, I think it's surprising how quickly things spun out of control financially at Barca.
They sold Neymar in 2017 for absolutely bonkers money, and could have used that money to really set the club straight top-to-bottom. At that point, Messi and Neymar were both receiving under 300k/wk after taxes.

Loads of comments (elsewhere) about how much revenue he brings in for the league in increased sponsorship /TV rights etc so they should bend but they would have to deal with this soon anyway as he isn't playing forever.
Perhaps they already have agreements in place for the next few years and expect 36yr old Messi not to be a concern for the next round.I'm v.v.suprised La Liga didn't bend over for them for this very reason tbh.... Even though his years are numbered you'd expect them to cling desperately cling to ever last one of them.
With both their super-clubs feeling the pinch and no Messi AND Ronaldo; commercially speaking, La Liga is a very different place. In a lot of quarters it's been heralded as the best league in the world; surely they must fear that slipping.
Why should he play for free when his team-mates are earning millions? He doesn't owe them anything, the club earned billions off the back of his efforts.Indeed and if he loved the club that much he would play for free and even sponsor the youth team?
If it's so upsetting for you...... You could always just stay at Barca and, God forbid, actually take a pay cut to see out your final years in football there.
But somehow I don't think that would have even entered the modern day mercenary footballers brains.
