FC Barcelona never stops filling its coffers. An additional 400 million euros should soon bail out the Catalan club.
Wednesday at a press conference, Julian Nagelsmann, the coach of a Bayern orphan of his striker Robert Lewandowski, openly paid for the blaugrana robber: « Barcelona is the only club in the world which has no money but which buys all the players he wants. I don’t know how to comment on their police. It’s a little weird, a little crazy. « A reaction to the pharaonic transfer window – and not yet finished – of the Catalan club.
As if to respond to its detractors, the Barca is preparing to formalize a new sale of TV rights. A high value of 15%, and still benefiting the Sixth Street investment fund over the next 25 years. On June 30, this last structure had acquired 10% of the club’s TV rights against a check for more than 200 million euros; this time, it is 400 million additional euros which invite to fall into the Catalan purse.
A spectacular turnaround
A savings that should be added to the colossal loan taken out with the investment bank Goldman Sachs (nearly 600 million euros) and to the unexpected way represented by the sponsorship contract concluded with the Spotfiy platform ( 275 million euros over four years, plus an option at 160 million for eight more years). Certainly, President Laporta has raised the bar for a club that was over 1.35 billion in debt, then forced to part with its star player: Lionel Messi.
