Attilico de MadridTOThe exit of Lucas frees salary mass to undertake signings or improve contracts
SThere is some positive aspect within the traumatic Lucas departure to Bayern, that is none other thanthe increase in room for maneuver with which the Attico will face both the opening of the winter market and the demands for contract improvementsthat have been happening in the locker room since Griezmann renewed last summer shooting bestially the difference between the different salary scales of the staff. In this sense, the four million that are released from the French card will alleviate in some way the drowning thatManiataba club after reaching almost the 293 million cap imposed by LaLiga.
It should be remembered that for this reason Jonny was loaned to Wolverhampton immediately after his transfer from Celta,the allowance allowed for the salaries of players and technical corps was already practically covered. Therefore, Diego Costa's claim to increase his emoluments was not taken into account when he understood that the jump with respect to Antoine's were exorbitant, nor that ofSalt, nor that ofGodnnor that of the wide range of footballers who have not stopped demanding a fairer and more equitable distribution since last summer. So, although the savings that occurs with the adis of Lucas will not be enough to fulfill the aspirations of all, it will suppose some fresh air. In this sense,The departure of the Spanish-Brazilian striker to Chinese football will be a considerable liberationof the salary margin, twice the amount obtained with the francs.
However, this amount may not be used for contract improvements, but for the payment of the chips of the new faces that appear from January. Actually yesthe Atletico already considered the incorporation of a striker-as long as I managed to close an exit that made it possible-,now he is also forced to reinforce himself with a central, so that the budget to address the salaries of new hires will not leave room for much more.
