A year ago the team sold a percentage of Barca Studios to undertake various signings, including Robert Lewandowski. In this market, the culé president plans to make an even more ambitious maneuver in order to obtain a large economic injection.
The so-called levers are a fairly efficient method in terms of financing, and at this moment FC Barcelona does need them. The Catalan team is suspended in the air in the absence of concretizing some economic maneuvers, which allows them to register, sign and renew. That is why the last meeting between the managers most important of the culé club, resulted in the authorization of a new share sale.
Specifically, FC Barcelona will once again sell a package of shares with the concept of Barca Studios, to a German firm. The operation will result in the injection of 60 million euros, which will be used for pending maneuvers in the salary agenda. As we mentioned before, basically the money will be used to unlock all those pending procedures.
This will be the business of FC Barcelona to activate the best lever of 60 million
A year ago, the Barça team sold 49% of the shares of Barca Studios to 2 companies that operate in Spain, those are Orpheus and Socios.com. Each took control of 24.5%. Now what is intended is that each of these firms give up 8% in order to add the 16% that will be sold to the German fund, in exchange for 60 million euros.
The legal representatives of each organization have already given their endorsement, and now they will control 16.5%. Joan Laporta guarantees that the gains will begin to be seen throughout this season, if they also meet the sporting objectives, which go through defending the league title, winning the Copa del Rey and winning the Champions League again.
What operations are most urgent to unblock thanks to the new FC Barcelona lever?
First of all, the monetary injection will serve to finish registering the latest signings, including Ilkay Gundogan, Oriol Romeu and Iñigo Martínez. The renewals of Alejandro Balde and Ousmane Dembélé are continually being prepared. And finally, the most important point on the agenda, the signings on the agenda of Xavi and Joan Laporta.
Again the name of Bernardo Silva appears, as well as that of Juan Foyth, Joao Cancelo, Benjamin Pavard and Thomas Meunier, among others. The idea of the presidency and sports management is to once again be the team that best strengthens itself in LaLiga, just as it was in the 2022-23 season. So far, the Catalan team has closed 5 signings (4 free and 1 purchase for 3.4 kilos).
