The situation

Barcelona’s economic situation continues to be desperate and needs urgent solutions that must be taken at the assembly of compromisers next Thursday, June 16. At that meeting, the board will request permission from the committee to sell 49 percent of its commercial division and up to 25 percent of LaLiga’s television rights. The first step to obtain this permit was taken by President Laporta in his meeting with the senators (the 1,000 oldest members of the club) to whom he confessed that the economic situation is critical: “When we arrived the club was clinically dead, now we are in the ICU”. In a 17-minute exposition before 101 members of the thousand who could attend, Laporta got to the point from the beginning and began his speech saying that “next Thursday the 16th we have called an assembly to find solutions in order to straighten out the club’s economy, which is very delicate. When we took office, not even payroll could be paid and we had a Sword of Damocles on top of us; The entity had not paid creditors for three semesters. We were clinically dead in the event that the debtors executed their debt”.


After Laporta’s words, the economic vice president Eduard Romeu took the floor, who in 19 minutes outlined in broad strokes the viability of the operations that will be put to the vote next Thursday. He explained what is intended, but without detailing with whom or for how much. Probably, the attending members asked about this individual after his speech, but by then the press had already been invited to leave the auditorium. Romeu recalled that upon his arrival “we asked for five years to straighten out the club given the damage that had been done to the entity, we will try to shorten it.” Regarding the sale of the merchandising division (BLM), he asked for confidence to “choose the best travel companion, but the question of ‘how much is it worth?’ went unanswered.”
