Xavi Hernandez’s first full season as manager was a huge success as he led the club to the league title and the Spanish Super Cup.
But despite their successes on the field, the Blaugrana’s financial troubles have continued to be one of their biggest problems.
The Spanish giants agreed the partial resale of Barca Vision to Libero Group, but they are still awaiting payment from the German company.
Barcelona have been searching for any means to generate extra income, which is why they are playing Club America in a friendly on December 21.
According to Mundo Deportivo, the Catalans will receive €5 million for the game. A portion of that amount has already been paid, while the rest will be released later.
However, the fixture means Barca players will embark on a 14-hour flight after their home league game with Almeria (Mirror).
They dropped points again this weekend, with Valencia holding them to a 1-1 draw at the Mestalla Stadium.
Joao Felix’s second-half strike put them on course for victory, but Hugo Guillamon scored to ensure the spoils were shared.
Xavil will be looking to make a big comeback in the second half of the campaign.
The Spanish boss will want to add some new players in the January transfer window, but he may not have his wishes fulfilled with finances tight.
