GOTP Notepad: Barca in the money

BARCELONA have announced their financials for the 2017-18 season and they’ve reported record revenues of € 914 million, the highest ever by a football club.

Revenues were obviously boosted by the vast sum (some € 200 million) received by the club from the sale of Neymar to Paris Saint-Germain a year ago.

The La Liga champions made a net profit of € 13 million in a season that saw them break their record transfer fee twice – Ousmane Dembele (€ 105 million) and Philippe Countinho (€ 120 million).

This result puts Barcelona on course to reach its target of € 1 billion in revenues by 2021.

This summer Barca have spent more than € 70 million two signings, Arthur Melo from Gremio (€ 40 million) and Clément Lenglet from Sevilla (€ 36 million). They’ve also lost Andreas Iniesta and Paulinho to Japan and China respectively.

Meanwhile, as in any post-World cup season, Barcelona are being linked with a number of players, including France’s Paul Pogba and N’Golo Kante. There is also talk of Ivan Rakitic leaving the Nou Camp to make way for new signings.
