The departure of Sergiño Dest confirms FC Barcelona’s new sales policy

DEST LEAVES BARÇA FOR FREE

FC Barcelona has not had much income from player sales for many years. More than the account. Last year, Ousmane Dembélé’s departure to Paris Saint-Germain for 50 million euros became more concrete, but with except that half corresponded to him towards the player and his agent under the clause included in his extension in 2022. Of course, the Culés, who have inflicted “horrors” on them, can obtain extraordinary income from the departure of their footballers.

With Sergiño, Dest returned to confirm the story. He moved to PSV Eindhoven last season and had a purchase option (no obligation) of ten million euros. The Dutchman had intended to go through with it as he had left a very good feeling, but suffered a cruciate ligament tear in his knee that will keep him out of action until 2025 and plans changed.

PSV decided to keep the footballer, but under very different conditions. Barça gave them the rights to the player definitively, at no cost to them and only with a profit: a percentage of any future sale. Neither more nor less after he was loaned from Ajax in 2021 for 25 million euros (fixed and variable). For Barcelona, ​​this move was crucial as they had to save on players’ salaries and, more importantly, it did not fit into Hansi Flick’s plans.

The Barça without immediate income

In fact, as already mentioned, this is not an unknown practice at Barça. In recent years, he has been characterised by a lack of profit from the transfers of his players because he was unable to negotiate or because he could not find any offers. They have opted for free transfers by securing a percentage of a potential transfer, by giving up 50% of their players’ rights or by entering into a buy-back clause to “ensure” that they can get them back in the future. In any case, they are not the only ones betting like this in Europe.

In SPORT, we remember the cases of Ilaix Moriba (RB Leipzig), Estanis Pedrola (Sampdoria), Trincao (Sporting Portugal), Nico González (Carry), Jutglà (Witches), Aleñá (Getafe), Mingueza (Celtic), Junior Firpo (Leeds) or Mika Marble (Andorra). However, the most notable were the cases of Ez Abde, who sold 50% of his rights to Real Betis, or the case of Chadi Riad, also from the Andalusian group, who recently moved to Crystal Palace, leaving around ten “kilos” on the shelves of Barça.
