With the season done and dusted, FC Barcelona bosses are expected to focus on the transfer and sealing various sponsorship deals in an attempt to not only strengthen the club but also cut down on losses.
La Liga had notably reduced Barça’s spending limit to a negative figure at the start of March, meaning the club bosses have their task cut out as they look to guide the club to the right track.
In an attempt to mitigate the crisis, Joan Laporta had signed a multi-million sponsorship with Spotify. And according to a report from El Confidential, the Barcelona president is now set to strike a deal with CVC Capital.
The two parties have been locked in negotiations for months now and are believed to be close to reaching a final agreement.
The deal could go a long way in helping Barcelona bring in additional revenue and thereby, cut back the losses they have incurred over the past year or so.
El Confidential further suggests Laporta could sell 30% of Barça’s TV rights to Goldman Sachs, thus bringing in additional revenue. It will Barcelona move a step closer in their quest to return to normalcy, as they look to restore the club’s glory.
Barcelona are expected to make additional money by offloading several unwanted players in the team.
The Catalans are tipped to offload the likes of Clement Lenglet, Samuel Umtiti, Martin Braithwaite and Riqui Puig among many others, at the end of the season, while the club are open to a sale for Dutch duo Frenkie de Jong and Memphis Depay.
Player sales are expected to be Barcelona’s main source of revenue when it comes to signing new players in the market. So it will be essential the club find suitors for their unwanted stars this summer if they are to land their top targets.
