Barcelona have officially confirmed the activation of the third economic lever. The club sold 24.5% of Barca Studios to Socios.com for €100m.
According to Onda Cero’s credible Alfredo Martinez (5 stars), the Catalans have a three-point action plan after activating it.
1. Sign Cesar Azpilicueta
2. Sign Marcos Alonso
3. Register the new signings for La Liga
It is obvious that Barca want to bolster the defence by adding more experience. In particular, Xavi seems to be unhappy with his options at right-back, and Azpilicueta’s arrival is deemed as important.
As for the registration of the new signings, Barca start their league campaign against Rayo Vallecano on August 13. The coach will certainly want the new signings available for the game.
