Former Barcelona director Albert Perrin insists he is scared for the future of his beloved club given the club’s transfer activity.

Barcelona’s transfer activity has been under the spot light of late.

Big money signings like Ousmane Dembele and Philippe Coutinho have been deemed nothing short of disastrous.

Likewise the departure of Neymar, even for a world record fee was not in line with the club’s principles.

The Catalonians spent big this past summer on Antoine Greizmann and Frenkie De Jong.

While the jury is still out on them, the club quite simply did not have the financial clout to bring anyone else in even if they wanted to.

There has been plenty of talk about monetary irregularities and borderline bankruptcy. The transfer policy of Josep Maria Bartomeu is quite frankly scary as far as former director Albert Perrin is concerned.

Speaking to Marca, Perrin is left totally confused as to what direction the club is going.

He said:

“The future of the club scares me a lot.”

“There are so many things that they’ve done badly at Barcelona.”

“This board of directors only know how to sell to make the accounts work.”

“They don’t think about the sporting side of things.”

A catalog of poor signings has been seen as the Catalonian’s downfall in recent years.
