Barcelona’s latest economic lever of €180m approved by La Liga

Barcelona have reportedly activated an economic lever that will see them receive a €180 million windfall.

According to Gerard Romero, the Catalans have reached an agreement with Mountain Nazca, a private equity fund from Mexico, to sell a 49 percent stake in Barca Studios. 

The sale will generate €30m this summer, with the remainder to be paid in instalments.

La Liga have reportedly approved Barcelona’s latest economic lever. 

The club sold two 24.5 percent stakes in Barca Studios to Socios and Orpheus Media last year in exchange for €100m from each company. 

But the two firms only paid €10m each and they missed their deadlines in June, asking for more time to release their €30m instalments. 

That prompted the Catalans to look at other options, and they have reached an agreement with Mountain Nazca for a near half share of their media arm. 

The latest development will help them register players, as they currently have only 13 cleared to play.

Barca are also set to receive an economic boost from selling Ousmane Dembele and Franck Kessie to Paris Saint-Germain and Al-Ahli. 

Dembele is on the verge of joining PSG after they triggered the Frenchman’s €50m release clause, while Kessie will move to Saudi Arabia in a deal worth €15m
