“This proves people’s suspicion of the role of the “invisible hand” in the problems at Barcelona.”
1NEWS – La Liga president Javier Tebas has criticized Real Madrid president Florentino Perez for his role in the chain of events that led to Lionel Messi’s departure from Barcelona this summer. El Clasico rivalry is not only on the pitch
According to Tebas, Barcelona could actually keep La Pulga if Joan Laporta didn’t make a mistake. “Barca agreed with CVC for a month, until Madrid refused. At the club there is an inferiority complex with Florentino. Florentino has kidnapped Barca,” Tebas said, reported by Marca.
“It can happen like in 2003, when Laporta indicted losses to Joan Gaspart (former president of Madrid) and a group of partners took it to court. Covid-19 resulted in a loss of 200 million pounds,” added Tebas.
Tebas’ comments suggest that there is a huge financial crisis in La Liga at the moment, which is also evident from the transfer activity of Barcelona and Madrid. Covid-19 turned out to make a number of clubs faced with a financial crisis. Including the two Spanish giants.
In addition, this proves the classic rivalry of Barcelona and Madrid not only on the field, but also in administration. The reason is, if Barcelona accepts the CVC investment deal, there will be enough money to secure Messi’s status.
However, in the end, Laporta rejected CVC because of the conditions proposed, namely the distribution of television rights profits for 30 years. That is, Barcelona will receive money from CVC up front. However, they have to pay for it with broadcasting profits. This is like a credit loan from a bank that is paid in installments over several years.

With the failure of CVC, a number of ways were carried out by the two Spanish giants to secure the club’s finances. One way is to be willing to sell their best players.
Likewise, Messi’s departure became the main topic of conversation at Camp Nou. Several other players such as Antoine Griezmann were also sent to other clubs to balance the club’s finances.
In terms of revenue, Barcelona are currently focused on free transfers, as the likes of Eric Garcia, Memphis Depay and Sergio Aguero joined the club at the start of the summer transfer window. Luuk de Jong turned out to be a surprise on the day of their acquisition deadline, with the Dutch striker signing a season-long loan deal from Sevilla to replace Antoine Griezmann.
Real Madrid also had to part with Sergio Ramos and Raphael Varane, with the former sealing a free transfer to PSG after failing to agree a new contract at the club.
Los Blancos then recruited David Alaba as a free agent from Bayern Munich. Eduardo Camavinga joined for a fee believed to be around £30m from Rennes.
On the other hand, Madrid’s target for Kylian Mbappe ran aground in the middle of the road without fruit, because PSG remained firm and refused to sanction his sale. The record European champions reportedly offered 180 million pounds to sign Mbappe in the last few days of the transfer window. However, the offer was quickly rejected by the Ligue 1 giants.
