Also because of Gündogan: Barça sells shares for 120 million euros

Also because of Gündogan: Barça sells shares for 120 million euros

As announced by the Catalans, the club raised 120 million euros for the sale of a 29.5 percent stake in a technology platform. Barça did not say which stake it was. The business partners come from Germany and the Netherlands, it said.

Barça’s mountain of debt remains high

The club can use the income to finance its squad and newcomers, including Ilkay Gündogan, who moved from Manchester City to the Mediterranean. The financial situation at FC Barcelona has been tense for a long time. The club has debts of around four billion euros and must also comply with the regulations of financial fair play at national and international level.

This is one of the reasons why Barça had already sold assets worth several hundred million euros last summer, which was necessary for the registration of the newcomers. This is one of the reasons why Robert Lewandowski, who had just switched from FC Bayern, only received his playing license shortly before the start of the season.

However: According to the Spanish media, this procedure is common practice, and other clubs from La Liga are said to have not yet registered their newcomers.

The season will start on Friday evening with FC Almeria vs. Rayo Vallecano and FC Sevilla vs. FC Valencia. Defending champions FC Barcelona play at FC Getafe on Sunday evening (9.30 p.m., LIVE! on kicker).
