Explained What Is La Liga Salary Cap Limit And How It Will Affect Barcelona?
In 2013, La Liga added the salary Cap for the clubs of the league. This limits the spending of the clubs on the basis of their previous spending and revenue. Furthermore, cubs with less revenue cannot buy high-cost players with heavy wages. The cap allows the clubs to spend according to their revenue.
Currently, Barcelona is in debt of more than a billion. President Laporta confessed that the salary of the players was 103% of the club’s total income which was2 20-30% more. Also, the club has to release their main player Lionel Messi due to this wage bill issues. However, no club has received the money of the CVC La Liga deal as of now, which will give a little boost to these teams.
Staggering. Barcelona's salary cap for this season is 7th (!!!) in La Liga. Their budget is €97m.
Lower than Athletic Club, Real Sociedad, Villarreal.
By contrast, Real Madrid's is €739m.
Barcelona's budget has fallen €250m since last season. https://t.co/5lYUogpGF2
