Congrats you’ve just scored three goals


los_blanco_14

Depends. Is it the first 45 mins? If so, he is probably a goal down.

raddaya

His actual quote: >“If we can activate the two options that we’re proposing by June 30, we will have solved a large part of the club’s economic problems” he said.


Xehanz

Surely that means they are reinstating the Super League next month.

Just according to keikaku.

I think most know this it's more the two conditional in his statement that made me chuckle a little


guyfieri_fc

Well despite being put in quotations, the headline isn’t what he actually said


deadlyghost12

i dont think most know though it could be said funny in a way


Yoesito

Barça lisencing and merch has actual value, but Barça studios will be really hard to sell. If we manage to solve the most pressing financial issues without selling Frenkie it'll be because of the CVC deal (or a similar deal with Goldman Sachs).


----O-O----

Have you any idea what percentage of Barca's revenue would be lost?


deadlyghost12

sadly i dont think it is disclosed till now, only thing that is being said is that more than 49 percent of stake will not be sold and laporta confirmed that for BLM there is a formal offer availible but not for Barca studios till now


chiragg11

Even though it's not the primary option, the CVC deal is total garbage though. If I was a barca fan, I'd be livid if I thought my club was planning on taking that deal.


deadlyghost12

there were some reports that club is dealing with cvc for a 25 year deal instead of 50 for same money and also have option of a deal from goldman sach worth 400M for 20% rights for 20 years


damola44

Thanks for adding this. Ppl here like to farm for karma. Everything is a joke when it comes to Barca lmao. Sure we should be laughed at for some of the bone headed decisions we’ve made but the same jokes over and over get old


PickledCumSock

but wouldnt this mean that barca loses a lot of its revenue? i'm genuinely asking lmao


deadlyghost12

for that season revenue maybe lost but then club is getting bulk of money together with a buy back option too and barca studios and BLM doesnt bring that much revenue


Piyinski

It’s funny because this is classic political Laporta. These deals will provide relief to their solvency issues in exchange for giving up a material amount of revenue. And yes, Barca will apparently have a buy-out clause but it won’t be cheap. For the amount of cash that they’re paying ($200-$300M), the buyers will expect a minimum return. To say that these deals will practically fix their finances is oversimplifying the situation and misleading.

Money Heist: Barcelona

Proceeds to take a loan to solve the debt

mr_bonner94

No it’s not you take out a loan to pay off all outstanding debt at smaller apr rates to help organise debt and lower payments


deadlyghost12

that has been already been done, 500M loan from goldman sach was taken for it, that is not the plan i have it written it in new comments


Ok-Zombie4481

Last year after presidency imminent debt was reconstructed to be paid in long term, this year they gonna sell Barca studios, Merchandise platform and Ding dong, after that CVC deal to sell audio visual rights for 20 yrs. Next year loans of around 1.5 billion dollars will be taken for Espai Barca. ​ question to Barca fans, what implications do you see after all these steps?


HasibShakur

Barcelona I think has a major liquidity crisis at the moment. No economic powerhouse club in their would not sign the cvc deal unless they have some existential problem balancing their books by a


prateek_tandon

The renovation should be delayed till 2025 at the very least.


Ok-Zombie4481

hasn't renovation schedule already been public


remote_crocodile

We'll get out a bigger credit card to pay off our other credit cards. It's basically an infinite money glitch trust me bro.


Flexspot

That's basically how countries work though.


amaranto21

This is literally how to global financial system works for Corporate Finance. Even for your mortgage on your home. You refinance it to get better terms and you further push out when principal is due. Its not anything crazy.

OK, I understand he does this to keep morale up, but who is dumb enough to actually believe him?


FarAcanthocephala

You could actually read the article, helps a lot


TimTkt

So if we read between the political lines, it means that even if their most optimistic plan goes through (I guess that includes imaginary clubs suddenly buy Umtiti and the likes for huge amounts), that still won’t be enough to solve the club finance totally.


sirsotoxo

He is talking about 100s of millions of dollars in operations and you talking about Umtiti 😂😂 not even Mbappe would pay that you dumbo


TimTkt

So the plan is to sell 49% of merchandising and 10% of tv rights. Good long term plan !


GoatButton

I thought he meant June 2030 and thought "that's not very ambitious"

June 30 2050? This man is a liar. Always lies to try to make himself look good


Superjunker1000

I’ve enjoyed the Barca shitshow. They were too unfair in their finances for far too long. I’d like the shitshow to continue for at least another year so I hope that someone with the power fucks up their plans.
