With just a week remaining before the transfer window closes, Barcelona are working round the clock to meet their market objectives by the end of the month.

The club are yet to register Inaki Pena, Inigo Martinez, and Marcos Alonso, while Joao Cancelo’s loan deal to Camp Nou must also be finalised.

Meeting all these targets will require fresh revenue from Barça’s end. And to that end, the La Liga champions are expecting up to €40 million by the end of the month.

Barcelona expecting €40 million from Libero Football

Earlier this month, Barcelona sold a 29.5% stake in Barça Vision to a new group of investors, for a total sum of €120 million after Orpheus Media and Socios.com failed to meet payment deadlines.

Of that, Libero Football Finance AG acquired 9.8% of the entity for a fee of around €40 million, while the remaining 19.7% was purchased by a Cyprus-based investor, advised by Nipa Capital, for €80 million.

But Libero Football Fund is yet to finalise the payment. According to Mundo Deportivo, Barcelona are expecting a payment of €20 million from the German investors this week.

The Catalans expect the remaining €20 million to be paid next week, with a deadline of Wednesday, August 29.

This fresh injection of up to €40 million could go a long way in helping Barcelona not only register the players but also finalise Cancelo’s loan deal and register him.

Do Barcelona still own Barça Vision?

There has been a slew of activity this month, as far as the ownership equation of Barça Vision is concerned.

As things stand, Barcelona continue to hold a majority 51% stake in the entity.

The next biggest owner is the new investor based in Cyprus, who holds a 19.7% stake after purchasing a 2.47% share previously owned by Socios.com and another 17.2% from Orpheus Media.

Socios.com comes in third after diluting their ownership from 24.5% to 17.1%.

The new investor Libero Football Finance takes the fourth place after acquiring a 9.8% stake – having acquired 4.9% each previously owned by Socios and Orpheus.

Finally, Orpheus Media control the remaining 2.4% stake in the entity after making a huge divestment earlier this month.
