Barcelona can spend €3.8 million after the exit of Memphis Depay

Barcelona received a boost of €3.8 million from the exit of Memphis Depay

According to recent reports, FC Barcelona are have completed the sale of Memphis Depay to Atletico Madrid in return for a fee somewhere around €3-4 million. While this departure in itself makes sense, given how little game time Memphis was afforded this season, it also opens up the possibility of allocating resources elsewhere.

As per the reports from Mundo Deportivo, the Dutchman currently collects a salary of around €11 million per season, and with this departure, that huge amount is cleared from the wage bill as well. This showcases just how financially viable this sale might end up being.

As the Dutchman is leaving mid-season, Barcelona will save half of his wages (€5.5 million) and will receive €3-4 million in terms of the transfer fee so the total figure amounted from this operation would be around €9 million.

However, as Barcelona are currently only allowed to spend 40% of the money that they’re able to generate, courtesy of La Liga’s fair play rulings due to the club having an overly excessive wage budget, the summation of Memphis’s cleared wages and his sale altogether allow Barcelona the ability to spend somewhere around €3.8 million which is 40% of the total amount generated from the exit of Memphis Depay.

Given that the club is looking for budget options during the ongoing winter window, even the slightest of boosts in their financial prowess and capabilities can aid them in their pursuits elsewhere.
