If you need money, you can sell your trademarks. If you need to continue paying the best football player in the world… you REALLY have to sell your trademarks.
Camp Nou is a legendary football stadium and is famous all over the world. Rumour has it that FC Barcelona wants to sell the rights to the name of its stadium.
Lionel Messi’s contract is expiring at the end of this season. In order to be able to afford Messi’s new contract, Barcelona is looking for funds. Serious funds. According to Spanish media, pharmaceutical company Grifols is willing to pay Barça €400.000.000,- to attach its name to the stadium for the next 30(!) years.
Now let’s hope that FC Barcelona can keep playing in the Primera Division, and will not be the best football club in the new country of Catalunya.
