FC Barcelona and Real Madrid always want to beat each other in every aspect of football. The two want the better stadium, the better squad, the better players, and the better trophies. The two clubs are very competitive with one another, and now Real Madrid has the edge over them by signing the best player in the world, Kylian Mbappé. Although he joins the team for free, Mbappé will receive a big signing bonus of a reported $100 million throughout five seasons. His wages will also be very high, and it will be the highest they have been in La Liga for the past six years. FC Barcelona fans find it unfair that Real Madrid could continue to spend money this summer while the Catalan club has to be precise with their spending to avoid any FFP breaches. ESPN Deportes reported that in the last five seasons, Barça has spent almost 40 million euros more on signings than Real Madrid.

A couple of days ago, FC Barcelona’s president, Joan Laporta, reacted to Mbappé joining Real Madrid. He knew it was good for them, but he trusted in the academy of the club. Laporta told Mundo Deportivo, “As a Barça fan, it’s not good news to see Mbappé to Real Madrid. But to be honest, I prefer our strategy to trust a project with players produced and made in La Masia. I respect our rivals, but I keep our philosophy.”

FC Barcelona is in a financial crisis, which makes it difficult for the club to make a marquee signing this upcoming summer transfer window. The club is linked with many types of players but they would need to make a big sale in order to bring in a big player that can make a positive impact in the squad and for Barcelona’s upcoming season.

FC Barcelona could have a new attack next season as Joao Felix could likely just stay at Atletico Madrid, and Robert Lewandowski is pursued by Saudi Arabia. Two attackers that the Catalan club wants to sign are Luis Diaz from Liverpool and Nico Williams from Athletic Bilbao. Sport reports that Luis Diaz is now ahead of Nico Williams on FC Barcelona’s priority list. Deco likes the Liverpool winger more.
