Barça could invalidate Barça’s last transfers and therefore that of Memphis Depay.
Disaster scenario for Barça! Affected by major financial difficulties, the Blaugrana club seeks to reduce its payroll and to give up several elements, including a certain Antoine Griezmann. From a radio indiscretion RAC1, the Catalan club could even see La Liga invalidate the signings of Memphis Depay, Eric Garcia and Sergio Agüero, or even the extension of Lionel Messi. This could trigger a major institutional crisis, because the presidency of Joan Laporta would not recover.
El Barça pot keep més of a 50% menys del limit salary that tapeworm aquesta temporada, that will be of 347 million euros. Molts futbolistes s’han de rebaixar la fitxa per poder inscriure jugadors.

Catastrophe for Barça!
Thus, Barça would be limited to 160 million euros during the 2021-2022 season for the salaries of its employees. That is to say nearly 187M € less than its current limit… Suddenly, the Spanish club is exposed to the possibility of not being authorized to approve the signings made during the summer transfer window. What about Memphis Depay? Invited many times to extend to OL by Jean Michel Aulas, the Batavian player declined, convinced that he would sign for Barça in the summer.It is now done, but a return to square one seems plausible for the Dutch star, in case of invalidation of his transfer. The solution which consists in lowering the salaries of the players does not work for the moment at Barça, Pjanic and Umtiti, who emit at 8M € each annually, refused to accede to this request.
