Juventus-Di Maria waiting: Barcelona insists

There are several options for alleviating the situation. These include ongoing search for sponsors, but also targeted options TV rights, pay cuts, player sales and certain odds. “We need to work on BLM and television rights. It is necessary to put the different actors in competition. For BLM (the company of the club that controls the retail part) we have an offer of 275 million euros.

A simple solution would have been to accept the agreement with CVC, a British financial company (Barcelona rejected last March the agreement between CVC and LaLiga, which planned to contribute almost 2 billion euros to the Spanish first and second divisions. Fighting with economic difficulties): “It would have allowed us to end the financial imbalance, given that between the two offers of CVC, that of LaLiga Impulso and another that we had negotiated separately, they were 540 million. Two binding offers. We would have done in one year what we had planned to do in five. We would have stood in the Assembly and we would have succeeded. But we would have left the club worse than we found it. Why do we have to pay a debt with an interest rate of more than 10% when we have obtained a debt with an interest rate of less than 2%? ”, Concluded Romeu.
