Departure of Messi, abysmal debt and blues of the supporters… What is this mess at Barça?

While PSG is preparing to celebrate the first steps of Leo Messi in the red and blue jersey, Sunday, on the occasion of a trip to Reims, Barça, it is more difficult to have a smile in this start of the season. Despite an inaugural victory (4-2) at Camp Nou against Real Sociedad, Ronald Koeman’s men had to resolve to share the points the following week on the lawn of Atlhetic Bilbao.

If the Blaugrana supporters find grounds for hope with the signing of the former Lyonnais Memphis Depay, author of the equalizing goal against the Basques, we imagine the face they must have made, on the other hand, in front of the immense failure of Martin Braithwaite, the new holder on the attack front since the start of the Pulga in Paris, alone at 6 meters and who has found a way to send a sauce over the bar.

But this XXL crash of the former Toulousain is only the tip of the Catalan iceberg. Riddled with debt and forced to part with its Argentine jewel, while negotiating in parallel substantial wage cuts with its main locker room executives, the club led by Joan Laporta is going through one of the darkest pages in its history.
