FC Barcelona needs to get players out the door quickly in order to balance the books and not breach the first team wage cap.
One of the first issues to address is the departure of Bosnian midfielder Miralem Pjanić, who the club is willing to let go.
Barça has issued an ultimatum to the central midfielder in an attempt to accelerate his departure. The club has received loan offers for the player from Roma, Inter Milan and Juventus, but the player would need to drop his wage demands in order to secure a move to any of the three teams.
However, the player has not yet shown a willingness to agree to a wage cut. If this stance continues, Barça has decided that it will need to take action, implementing measures if necessary. The club hopes to reach a conclusion by next week at the latest.
In the conversations held with the club to date, it seems clear that the player only wants to return to Italy. However, he is not willing to earn less than he is currently earning at FC Barcelona.
The club needs to find a quick solution to this stand-off, just one year after the Bosnian international arrived at Camp Nou in the controversial swap deal involving Brazilian midfielder Arthur Melo.
