But it is a temporary result that is acceptable for a Barca who has just received the shock of being eliminated by Real Madrid from the semi-finals of the Copa del Rey painfully.
The second task is related to finance and economics, Barca will have to decide whether to proceed with the Espai Barca project or not, when this agreement has been stalled for a while. The Espai Barca project is a plan to build a new football field for Barca and renovate the surrounding works. It is expected that the new stadium will have a capacity of more than 100,000 seats, and construction will cost about 900 million euros. Barca will spend 420 million euros to repair the Palau Blaugrana stadium. The rest to build infrastructure, improve Johan Cruyff yard. However, to implement this plan, Barca must borrow 1.5 billion euros.
The final issue concerns the week that determines Barca’s future and honor, that is, President Joan Laporta has been chosen to give the first public explanations about the Negreira case – the case accusing the Barcelona club of spending money for Jose Maria Enriquez Negreira, former referee and former Vice-Chairman of the Arbitration Committee of the Spanish Football Federation from 1994 to 2018, to receive reports in their favor.
According to many sources, Barca is still adamant that they do not violate. Meanwhile, UEFA also warned Barca that this is a serious case that, if there is evidence, they will ban the Catalan team from participating in tournaments within the framework of this organization.
