FFriends and colleagues from El Mundo have been thinking about requests, demands and contracts all week Barcelona players as they focus on upgrades.
Most of them are criticized, while at the time these contract extensions were welcomed. You know about the hypocrisy of the football world.
Leo Messi, Neymar, Gerard Pique (now he looks like a bad guy, when until recently all of Barcelona idolized him and praised his extravagant gestures), Sergio Busquets and others did not commit any crime.
They asked and Joseph Maria Bartomeuunder exorbitant pressure from both the press (the same press that now criticizes these contracts) and the fans agreed to sign a new contract and everyone was happy.
Do not forget. It didn’t matter much what this move put Barcelonathe future is at stake. “I don’t care what happens, I want the best at all costs”, a phrase that can be heard in many circles of various teams. It’s said and done.
Salary cap and boss
This is the moment of leadership, of rejection, of demonstrating that leaders should decide, set the line, and not act like mindless fans.
RealMadrid situations that, in the opinion of the presidency, threatened the viability of the club.
They were in pain, but at the Santiago Bernabeu stadium it was clear to them that they could not hand over the keys to the club to anyone, no matter how much Cristiano Ronaldo mentioned in another dimension and more for the hierarchy, Sergio Ramos.
The salary scale became the subject of memes and laughter on sports talk shows, which led the club to sue for leaving Cristiano Ronaldowho, by the way, is gone RealMadrid you continued to exist and conquer.
The consequence of both is that Barcelona had dangerous leverage to compete (economic survival is another matter), while RealMadrid boasts 450 million euros in cash after cutting its income by 400 million euros in two years due to the pandemic.
No matter how much they say RealMadrid did not go to activate any leverage.
What he has done is to sell and use the additional opportunities that the Madrid stadium can generate. 360 million euros is the price plus 70 percent of what it produces.
What there is no doubt about is that the keys to the club are in the hands of Valdebebas, and Barcelona?
This agreement meant that the losses caused by the pandemic were transferred to a better life, to squandering contracts that would never come because RealMadrid applies the logic to spend what I have.
And so it will be until Florentino Perez as well as Jose Angel Sanchez those are the ones who decide. Do not doubt. Lever of wisdom.
