“This exchange deal, which seems inevitable. Once again emphasized the reality that the club’s condition is very worrying. And it is here that it does the most damage,” Font said on social media.

The club’s officials are covering their backs

A contender for the future presidential election at Camp Nou, Victor Font, has criticized Barcelona’s decision to release Arthur Melo to Juve. The 23-year-old Arthur is involved in a swap deal involving Miralam Pjanic, going the other way. “This exchange deal, which seems inevitable. Once again highlights the reality that the club’s condition is very worrying. And it is here that it does the most damage,” Font said on social media. “The sports project has an unstable financial situation and irregularities”. The transfer once again shows that the absolute priority of the council is to balance their accounts. By guillotining with a very harmful guarantee system and especially with accounts that have been under a lot of stress for many years before the pandemic.

“Last year, it was Jasper Cillessen and Neto. This year, to cover their backs, the board saved the club from a young and strategic player for the future, whom they signed a relatively short time ago. This is a new demonstration that there is no sports project at a key time for the club. Exchanging Arthur for Pjanic is possible, is overestimated in the market price. And increases the payroll account and future bonuses with a player who goes into the final phase of his career. We complain that once again, they put the interests of people in charge ahead of the interests of the club.”
