Barcelona's Salary Cap Has Been Slashed AGAIN, It's Pathetic Compared To Real Madrid's

Barcelona's financial situation has been spotlighted by La Liga's latest salary caps with the Catalan giants being given a limit of €98 million (£85m).

It's a seventh of longtime rivals Real Madrid, who have been given a €739 million (£638m) allocation according to the Daily Mail.

This summer saw Barcelona fail to register Lionel Messi due to their problems and they've also let Antoine Griezmann depart.

La Liga released their salary caps for the new season on Wednesday and they've stood firm in not giving special consideration to Barcelona.

Barcelona's salary cap has declined massively in the last few years and the Blaugrana were hit hard by the coronavirus pandemic.

Debts have totaled over £1 billion and it has seen their salary cap drop from a lofty €671 million (£580m) in 2018-2019, the last season they won the league.

Overall, the drop in their salary cap has been a whopping €573.1 million in 24 months.

Real Madrid have been heavily praised by the governing bodies however.

They lost Sergio Ramos and Raphael Varane this summer, but have been commended for strong financial management during the pandemic.

La Liga corporate director Jose Guerra said: "'Real Madrid has managed it brilliantly. If we add the results obtained in 19-20 and 20-21 I think I remember that they achieved a profit of one million euros or more and avoided losses.

"There are no secrets: player transfers, salary cuts... You have all seen what they have been doing and that has enabled them to reach the good situation they are in."
