    12m for 5 years and his release clause are the pre pandemic numbers. Most should know that.

    3. they flop
    4. nobody wants to buy them since they flopped plus they would have to pay similar wages
    5. players have no reason to leave a club since they are earning too high salaries

    So, if Lautaro will flop, which he will, we will keep him for 4-5 years at least.

    Our rooster in 2025:
    Griezmann, Coutinho, Dembele, Lautaro, Busi, Rakitic, Pique, Roberto, Alba.
    Curently, we have exactly 11 dead weights which we can not get rid of till the end of their contracts:

    2021 - Suarez, Vidal and Rakitic

    2022 - Dembele, Pique

    2023 - Umtiti, Busquets, Coutinho

    2024 - Griezmann, J.Alba, J.Firpo

    2025 - Lautaro Martinez is the latest in this growing list. Who will be the next? can we predict?

    Very well said mate. That is also my philosophy. Pay less from the beginning, see how it works and if he has shown star quality, then reward him with bigger wages and contract. Unfortunately, we are doing it the other way.

    Big salary after Messi is gone will be only reason for players to come considering where Ratomeu is leading the club.

    MD is convinced 70m and Firpo (who the club values at 41m ) will be enough to get Lautaro. Yeah, sure.

    I wouldn't. People don't like Firpo but I think he has a lot more to show and he could improve a lot in a full year under Setien. And well, if we'll include him in a deal we'll need to bring another LB for which we don't have money. Oh well, we can always bring De Sciglio to cover both RB and LB.

    50m + Vidal is the most I'd give for Lautaro. Even that's too much for someone we don't need.

    The thing with Firpo is, he’s not gonna take Alba’s spot any time soon. I wasn’t impressed with anything he’s shown this season for us either, maybe it’s his mentality because for Betis he was much better.

    But yeah, maybe that valuation of Lautaro is a bit too high.

    Well I hate Inter and hope so they will accept firpo plus 70 mil. Even that is too much for lautar.

Once you sign players who fit the football you want to play, things start to click.
    Totally agreed. That's why I'm not a fan of any new signing until a proper and solid manager is brought and he starts to build his team. Unfortunately this kind of manager that is also able to do the job in a club like Barce is very very hard to find.

    Our board makes transfer decisions so it is obvious that they always sign coaches without reputation like Valverde or Setien that are happy to be in Barca no matter what players board will sign for them.
