Club president Joan Laporta has been looking at ways to improve the club’s financial situation since his re-election in March, which in turn could help fund transfers down the line.

Laporta has reportedly seen Barca Corporate as a great business opportunity and its potential to bring acquire investors.

Barca Corporate consists of Barca Academy, Barca Innovation Hub, Barca Licensing and Merchandising and Barca Studios.

El Confidencial have reported that the club have received a proposal from the Bonomi family through their company Investindustrial.

The club have been sent an offer worth 200 million euros (£173m) to acquire 50 per cent of the shares of the subsidiary of the Catalan club.

It is said that the Bonomi family are interested, above all, in the merchandising aspect of a potential deal and getting the most out of the club’s shops and clothing.

Barcelona have been heavily impacted as a result of the coronavirus pandemic with a reported €1.2bn (£1bn) gross debt.

A key part of Laporta’s election campaign was to keep Barcelona’s financial crisis at bay and improve their economic situation.
