Barca Get Massive Budget For New Players

Barcelona will have up to €60 million to spend on new players in the close season, according to the man in charge of their economic affairs.
“Barca are in a position to buy four players,” vice president Javier Faus told Catalunya Radio. “We have between €50 and €60 million net for signings”.
The club brought in one player last summer, the controversial signing of Neymar that prompted allegations of misappropriation of funds and tax evasion and resulted in the resignation of president Sandro Rosell.
Including a payment of €13.5 million to the Spanish treasury after fraud charges were laid against the club, the Brazil forward ended up costing just under €100 million, close to the record fee arch rivals Real Madrid paid for Wales winger Gareth Bale last year.
Barca did not sign anyone in the January transfer window, disappointing some fans unhappy with a series of shoddy displays in defence.
At the least, the Spanish champions will need replacements for goalkeeper Victor Valdes and captain and central defender Carles Puyol who have said they are leaving at the end of the season.
There are also question marks over the futures of reserve goalkeeper Jose Manuel Pinto and full back Martin Montoya because their contracts expire in June.
