Barcelona have been struggling with their finances for a number of years now, and despite the efforts from Joan Laporta’s board, the Catalans are still unable to escape the economic difficulties they find themselves in.

The latest event that showcases this fragile economic condition of the club is the imposition of a fine of €800k, that the club has received from La Liga for breaching the club’s salary limits on three different contracts.

As per the reports from Goal, La Liga believe that the Catalan club has breached the salary limit on three of the contracts they has offered to their players. The players in question are Dani Alves, Andreas Christensen, and Ronald Araujo.

Barcelona have contested the fine in a second instance committee run by the RFEF. The club claims that Dani Alves was on a minimum possible salary, and was not actually registered before January.

Similarly, the club has argued that Christiensen, who was actually signed before the transfer window opened in July 2022 but registered later, should be counted in the 2022-23 accounts, as he was registered in this financial year.

The imposition of these fines and the ensuing legal battle is another episode in the lost-standing hostility between La Liga and Barcelona, who have seen their relationship deteriorate significantly over the last few years, mainly because of the club’s involvement in the ESL project and its economic and sporting interests.
