Is Barcelona On The Edge Of Bankruptcy?

Camp Nou

COVID has hit almost every club in world football, but it has probably hit no club harder than Barcelona. We have been writing for months about the clubs financial situation.

Unfortunately for Barca fans, the financial situation is getting worse not better, according to a report published on Friday in El Confidencial.

It article claims that the Catalan giants have asked companies Goldman Sachs, Allianz, Barings, Amundi and Prudential to delay outstanding debts so that the club can avoid potential insolvency.

The club are said by the report to have requested from the banks and investment funds a dispensation for failing to comply financially, which would mean that there has been a non-payment of €200m.

Barcelona’s Massive Debt Approaches €1B

Lionel Messi Priceless

FC Barcelona is in the midst of a presidential campaign, but the winner might be getting a poisoned challis as Barcelona’s growing debt is set to force the club into a period of dramatic austerity, with the Catalan giants owing €900m to creditors.

The LaLiga side announced during the 2019-20 season that it expected to be the first club to break the €1bn barrier for income in a single year in football, however that figure was blown off course by the coronavirus pandemic.

As a result, the club had a loss of almost $100m last season, and there are concerns this season could be worse.

Barcelona Face Giant-Killers In Copa del Rey

Barcelona must find its way past the minnow that embarrassed Atletico Madrid after being drawn to face neighbour Cornella in its Copa del Rey opener.

Ronald Koeman’s Barca enters the competition at the Round of 32 stage and the record 30-time winner is sure to take Cornella seriously after it earned a 1-0 win over Atletico on Thursday (AEDT).

Cornella’s Camp Municipal stadium is situated less than 10 miles away from Barcelona’s Camp Nou, making it a dream draw for the Segunda B side.

Zidane Refuses To Commit Future To Real Madrid

Zidane

Zinedine Zidane has admitted there is growing uncertainty over his future as manager of Real Madrid because the job ‘takes a lot out of you’.

The Frenchman, who is in his second stint in charge of Real, revealed that he will not be discussing a contract extension any time soon, with his current deal set to expire in 2022.

Zidane first took the hot seat at the Bernabeu in 2016 and resigned two years later in 2018 before returning to the Spanish club the following year.

He has remained coy when questioned over his future at Madrid as he admitted the job can be a stressful one.

Champions League Draw: Barcelona v PSG

Champions League Trophy

Barcelona were drawn against Paris Saint-Germain in the standout tie of the Champions League round of 16 on Monday morning.

The clash means that, if fit, Neymar will return to Camp Nou. The last time these teams met in the competition produced one of the most memorable matches in Champions League history as Barca — inspired by Neymar — won the round-of-16 second-leg clash 6-1 to recover from a 4-0 first-leg defeat. Neymar left in the summer of 2017, and this will be his first return.

Cristiano Ronaldo will make a return to Portugal as Juventus were drawn with Porto — a side he has mixed memories of playing against in the competition.
