Indeed, Font has claimed that the club must prioritise the reduction of their outgoings and this includes raising €80m in player sales, that must be processed ahead of July.
Font has now reiterated that – despite multiple first-team squad exits over the past year – more reductions in the budget must be made and more players will need to be sold.

Font said, as per ESPN Deportes: “Our shock plan is based on a budget with €100m of losses. We have already had conversations with strategic partners to restructure expenses. Sell players before June 30 for a value of €80m.”
The Blaugrana confirmed in November that they had agreed a wage cut with the players that would save the club €122m.
