If Barcelona’s financial situation was not dire enough, Libero came around and rubbed salt into the club’s wounds.

The German investors promised to pay the club €60 million in exchange for a stake in Barça Vision, and while €20 million arrived, the remaining payment never made its way to the Catalan coffers.

Joan Laporta used the investment firm’s promise as a guarantee to La Liga to be able to sign players last year, and the non-payment has taken the case to court. Needless to say, Joan Laporta and Co. are on a desperate hunt to find a replacement investor.

Two destinations

As revealed by Mundo Deportivo, Barcelona are looking to find new partners to compensate for the failed economic lever and are in open contact with several firms.

This time, however, there is serious caution over the payment terms and the club are thus hesitant to hastily close a deal.

According to the latest update, the club have contacted potential investors from Dubai and the United States of America in recent weeks and an agreement can be expected in the near future.

The objective, needless to say, is to improve the club accounts ahead of the summer transfer window when the Blaugranas will require reinforcements.

The Nike lever

Earlier this week, word spread that Barcelona and Nike are working to mend their differences and arrive at a new renewal that benefits all parties involved.

According to the same report, the American sports manufacturers were said to be willing to offer Barcelona a sum of €120 million per year and also a renewal bonus of €100 million.

If true, the aforementioned bonus will go a long way in simplifying Barcelona’s accounts and bringing them back to the 1:1 spending rule for the summer. Moreover, it will help clear the €40 million defaulted by Libero last year.
