Barcelona’s financial struggles continue as they reportedly plan to remove the breakfast menu for youth players in order to save money.
The decision comes as the club faces ongoing financial difficulties and seeks to make cost-cutting measures. According to a report from Spanish outlet Relevo, club president Joan Laporta believes that the breakfast meals have been an unnecessary expense, as the youth players have not been taking full advantage of them.
These financial challenges have been evident in recent years, with Barcelona being forced to make tough decisions to manage their finances.
In 2021, they had to let Lionel Messi leave the club as a free agent due to their inability to renew his contract. Despite attempting to bring him back this summer, the club couldn’t secure the necessary funds for his return.
To address their financial situation, Barcelona activated “economic levers” in 2022 to sign new players and pay wages.
However, these resources have now been depleted, leaving the club in a precarious position.
As a result, they are not only looking to generate revenue through player sales but also reduce expenses, including removing the breakfast menu for youth players.
It’s clear that Barcelona is facing significant financial challenges and must take measures to ensure their financial stability.
