It will only multiply. Not sure what Pep discussed with his buddies in Laporta while golfing and Koeman. Since those meetings, media has been full with rumours of us selling all our players at discount to them

The media have a standard playbook for summer transfers. They put he names of decent layers and big clubs in a hat and start pulling them out untill something plausible comes out. Then they go to another hat with bits of rationale, player hates the weather, players girlfriend not happy, etc etc.

The problem is they have not adjusted it for the new reality of football finance. Barca are on their arse They are not signing anyone from us. Real Madrid are in the same boat.

Depay has apparently agreed a 30% salary reduction before he has officially signed or kicked a ball for these shysters.

Wonder if they will expect Kun to do the same?

Garcia will be paying them to play by the time this plays out.

What beats me about Barca's situation is that they are in exactly the same boat as Leeds and Portsmouth. Two cases they cite as examples of why we needed FFP.

All three clubs have over-extended their finance to maintain a level of success to the point where they can't afford to pay their players. The only thing missing is formalisation of their insolvency.This despite Barca having the advantage over the other two of ring fenced CL income, illegal tax breaks, an effective monopoly on Spanish talent and extended use of the greatest player in the world.

They are a case-study in how not to run a football club but the world's media are politely coughing and looking the other way.
