A few days ago we received the news that La Liga had reached an agreement with CVC, an investment fund that intended to become a shareholder in the company that La Liga would create to manage projects and television rights. The agreement also implied an injection of 2.4 billion to the clubs, of which Barça and Madrid would receive 250 each.
That is why it is surprising that both clubs reject the agreement, since the injection of this money would mean a relief to the weak accounts of Barça, they could even have registered Messi. For its part, for Madrid it would imply the possibility of offsetting the spending on the reform of the Santiago Bernabéu and more money to be able to undertake signings like Mbappé’s. So why do they reject it?
The representatives of Madrid and Barça have declared that the agreement implies mortgaging television rights for 40 years. They also doubt the legality of the agreement. The truth is that the return to those years was considered, so that it would be favorable. So the reality seems to reside more in the aspirations of both clubs with the creation of the Super League.
Probably, the agreement implies that Madrid and Barça have to remain in La Liga for the duration of the contract. That is why I really think they do not accept funding, as both clubs have already received funding through other formulas before and there has been no problem.
The truth is that the agreement could be adopted by a simple majority of the clubs affiliated to La Liga, which are 42, and the rest if they would welcome this operation, including Atlético de Madrid. For this reason, the last route for Real Madrid and Barça to challenge the agreement would be the judicial route, something that could have a path and that they do not rule out from Real Madrid, as they allege that there are currently no mortgages that exceed 25 years.
