Barcelona considering selling part of their museum amid financial crisis

Barcelona will look to activate another financial lever by selling part of their museum, reports La Portera de Nunez.

The Camp Nou club have struggled economically in recent seasons.

Barca bought and registered new players after selling 25% of their television rights for the next 25 years to private equity company Sixth Street.

They generated revenue for this season’s accounts as a result.

However, La Liga president Javier Tebas has revealed they will be unable to sign players in the summer.

The Catalans are looking to sell between 20% and 40% of their museum to resolve that.

Tebas has insisted they will be unable to activate levers next season as they are set to be €200 million over their limit.

Barcelona have already denied that and will pull out all the stops to resolve their woes.

Their famous museum remains a major source of income. Around 1.5m people visit the historied facility yearly.

It fetched Barca around €60m in the 2018-2019 season, but that has since dropped post-Covid.

Barcelona sold their soul a long time ago – now they are selling their history as well.

It appears president Joan Laporta does not care about any of that. He is ready to monetise any and everything to get by.

Xavi’s side’s woeful European campaign this term has not done them any favours.

They must bolster their squad to have a realistic chance of winning continental trophies.

Barcelona need to start making more smart recruitment as they do not have a lot of cash to splash.
