Barcelona may be busy reducing their wage bill and trying to raise income but it seems the Catalans still have a lot of bills outstanding.

A new report from Ara reckons Barca must pay out €90m over the next year and still owe a further €120m in transfer fees. That makes a total of €210m, although Barca are due to receive around €89m in transfer fees - leaving the deficit at around €120m.

The debts relate to recent transfers of seven players including Robert Lewandowski, Raphinha, Jules Kounde, Ferran Torres and even Frenkie de Jong, while Barca are still due money from the departures of Franciso Trincao and Antoine Griezmann.

Barca are thought to still owe Bayern €31m for Lewandowski, must pay another €62m to Leeds for Raphinha, €39m to City for Torres and €36m to Sevilla for Kounde.

The Catalans are also said to still need to pay another €16m to Ajax for De Jong and also still owe money, albeit relatively small amounts, for Neto Muraua, Jean-Clair Todibo, Emerson Royal, Junior Firpo, and Miralem Pjanic - all of whom have long since departed the club.
