La Liga demand investigation of Barcelona financial reports
La Liga president Javier Tebas has called for an investigation into Barcelona’s latest financial reports amid concerns over the truth behind the numbers.
Former president José Maria Bartomeu recently accused Barcelona of exaggerating their financial woes, suggesting that the € 1.35million debt claimed by current chief Joan Laporta is twice the actual figure.
Bartomeu asked how Barcelona arrived at the numbers mentioned in their financial report, and that seems to have worried Tebas as La Vanguardia claim he is pushing for an investigation of the results.
Tebas disagrees with Barcelona’s claims and has requested an audit from the Superior Sports Council to shed light on the issue.
The La Liga boss has already questioned Barcelona’s public statements about their finances.
“About Barca, I am more concerned about the institutional crisis I see than the economic situation,” he said. The team.
“We have their numbers, Barca were not nearly dead otherwise they could not have received a loan of over 500 million euros. Barca are not so bad, although they are worse than Real Madrid. “
Despite claiming to be in financial shambles, Laporta plans to sign three signings in the January transfer window, with Beijing forward Sinobo Guoan Cedric Bakambu and Bayern Munich winger Kingsley Coman on the radar.
There have also been numerous rumors suggesting that Barcelona are ready to spend a lot of money in January. RB Leipzig’s Dani Olmo and Manchester City’s Raheem Sterling have been presented as targets, but both are said to cost Barcelona a pretty penny to sign.
