In reality, Freixa went a step further and also acknowledged which squad areas they are looking to reinforce.
“We have been working for some time now and we can say that we have reached an agreement of intent with an investor who will contribute 250 million [euros] for Barcelona Coporate, which consists of four business lines, in exchange for 49 per cent,” Freixa told RAC1.
“Although it will first have to go through the Assembly. We will have the funds for the economic situation to improve so that we can make sporting decisions. And in 2021/22 we will incorporate three superstars: two in attack and one in defence.”
The 52-year-old was explicit when asked about whether Ronald Koeman would be in favor of these additions.
“It’s impossible for Koeman not to like them. They are unique players,” he said.
“Koeman will be coach until the end of his contract [June 30, 2022], without any doubt. Giving stability to the coach and the team always pays off.”
Freixa was asked if Erling Haaland or Kylian Mbappe could be presented at the Camp Nou, which he said is possible.
“We have a maxim: we will never talk about players until we present them,” the presidential candidate stated.
“It’s a bad strategy because you allow other clubs to step on your negotiation. But it is absolutely possible. That’s what Barcelona must do: bring in difference-making players.”
