EI FCBarcelonaas reported by Pedro Morata in El Partidazo de Cope, put money out of his own pocket to responsibly inflate the selling price of the first two levers: the sale of 25% of TV rights to Sixth Street. More specifically in 150 million euros.
The Bara ensures, officially, having sold the first two levers for 667 millionwhen in reality, according to the information, Sixth Street would have paid only 517 kilos. The other 150 would have been put by the Barça clubin order to inflate the numbers.
El Bara had communicated the operation saying that Sixth Street was investing 517 million, which would produce a capital gain of 667. Later, Laporta in Manhattan said that these 667 had been counted and that he hoped that there would be no differences in interpretation with The league. A difference in interpretation of 150 million fair play to register signatures is a more than significant amount. For reasons of fair play, in a season, the signings of Lewandowski, Raphinha and Kound they are about 80 million.
The difference between having those 150 kilos or not having them is not having to sell the other two levers of 49% of Only studios for 200 million. And Barcelona’s procedure to reach those numbers was as follows, according to Pedro Morata.
Sixth Street appears in Barca life. A Sixth Street lo trae Key Capital whose founders are Borja Prado and Anash Laghari. Barca and Sixth Street set up a subsidiary called Locksley Invest SL. They both have 50%. El Bara then sells its lifetime television rights to said company. Sixth Street buys only the rights for a duration of 25 years and for an amount of 517 million. El Bara puts in another 150 of his money buy their own rights to, starting from annuity number 26 (in 2048).
So Barcelona, once this “thing” is done, receives from Locksley Invest SL 667 million for these 25% sold. But of these 667, 150 were put by Bara himself. The operation is accepted by the new company in charge of Barça’s audit, Grant Thortonobliging the subsidiary to have the rights for life.
The explanation for this ruse is that the club tried to make LaLiga agree to an income of 667 million for fair play purposes, but in La Liga they told him no. Because Bara only really received 517 million ‘clean’. The interpretation not being favorable, they were forced to hastily sell the other two levers for 200 million more.
