Sergi Roberto has extended his contract with Barcelona until June 2022 with a new release clause of €500m included.
Josep Maria Bartomeu said: “We are going to 1 billion euros before 2021, which is good news for the club. It means that the industry of football is increasing, is growing and that is good for fans.” The club is expected to sign an agreement for sponsorship – this investment will cover upgrading the stadium’s facilities. Recently the team was caught in the middle of Spain’s politics following the Catalan independence referendum. “Sponsors aren’t worried about that. Players’ main concern is that we have to play and we have to be competitive,” Bartomeu added.
