The season is considered lost and it is estimated that, in a week, the Government will have taken action on the matter. The financial buffer of the entity, which has 156 million in treasury (in cash, ready to face any contingency) and a net profit accumulated in the last decade of 350 million euros, puts it safe in this first sunami … but there is concern because it is The horizon over when football can be played is becoming increasingly black.However, in the short term there is calm. The ECA recommends an Efficiency Ratio (percentage of the entity’s total salaries with respect to operating income) of 70%. According to the latest accounts approved in Madrid (those of 2018-19) that ratio is 52%, a spectacular figure. The total wage bill is 394 million and the operating income is 757 million.

But it will join any consensual and group decision that is adopted from LaLiga in its negotiation with AFE or, even, it is not ruled out that the Government takes action on the matter and arbitrates by means of a Decree Law to set out how things should be done to ensure the survival of an industry, that of professional sports, from which many families live in the country.
