Barcelona Planning a Squad Revolution for the 2021/22 Season

FC Barcelona's Next Season

New Barcelona president Joan Laporta is looking to revitalize the squad after an unsuccessful end to the season. Barcelona finished third in the league and crashed out of the UEFA Champions League in the Round of 16. The club finds itself in a very poor economic condition due to the COVID-19 pandemic as well as the mismanagement of the club’s finances by past club president Josep Bartomeu. Despite these challenges, Laporta must do two things. First, he must find a way to convince Lionel Messi to renew his contract, which expires this summer. Then, he must revitalize the squad with some much-needed quality.

Barcelona has the highest wage bill in all of Europe despite having only won one trophy in the past two years. The club plans on renegotiating certain players’ contracts to lower the wage bill and selling “deadweight” players.

It is highly unlikely that the club signs “superstar” players due to its economic condition. Yet, all signs point to numerous departures and signings taking place.  It will be a very busy summer in the Catalan city.
