# Total Spending:
As I have mentioned it earlier, FC Barcelona stands among one of the richest clubs in the planet. They also have to spend a lot of money as well. They spend 5.4 million Euro per week just behind the player’s wage fee. So the number reads as much as 284.68 million Euro per year. The reason is very clear. Barca does have one of the best as well as the most valuable football squads in the world. Very few teams can compete with their level.
# New Signings:
Barca also spends a lot of money on bringing in new players. They recently brought in the likes of Antoine Griezmann, Neto, Frankie De Jong. They signed the French forward for 120 m Euro. Dutch central midfielder De Jong cost them as much as 75 million Euro. Brazilian keeper Neto also joined them for 26 million Euro from Valencia CF.
# Contract Negotiation:
Along with the new signings, they have also let Jordi Alba sign a new contract. They have got 5 years’ contract with the Spanish full-back as well as Brazilian central midfielder Arthur Melo. On the contrary, another Latin American, Rafinha’s contract is running out and soon a decision will be made by the authority.
# Highest Earning Players:
Undoubtedly, Leo Messi is not only the highest-paid Barca player but also the highest-paid athlete in the world. The Argentine receives a mammoth wage fee of 1.3 million Euro per week, more than twice than any other Barca players except Griezmann. He bags more than 70 m Euro per year as his basic salary. Antoine comes in 2nd place with a huge salary of 8.8 lac per week. Uruguayan striker Suarez follows him with 4.5 lac Euro.
# Loan Deals:
FCB has also sent some players out on loan. The list includes superstar like Philippe Coutinho. The Brazilian central attacking midfielder has joined Bundesliga champion Bayern Munich. That’s why, currently Barcelona doesn’t need to pay him his wage fee, instead Bayern is carrying it.
