Barcelona president Laporta says breakaway European Super League remains alive

Barcelona president Joan Laporta says the breakaway European Super League remains alive.

Laporta also went on to discuss the major issues surrounding the club, from the possible arrival of Erling Haaland, the contract of Ousmane Dembele and the return of Leo Messi.

“It’s moving forward,” Laporta said about the European Super League, in an interview with TVE.

“We are promoting the project together with Florentino Perez, with whom I speak often. It is a way to save European football. It is evident that we must fit it into the framework of European football and without destroying the domestic leagues. They are essential for us.

“We cannot allow European football to be in the hands of states that do not belong to the European Union. It is clear that [Manchester] City and PSG have a money-making machine, and we are fighting against that.

“Not only the three clubs that I am talking about, but others who are silent, but in the background they give us their support.”

Barcelona are in line to bolster their coffers with a deal with CVC as well as the naming rights of the Camp Nou from Spotify, but Laporta is wary about going overboard with signings, even for Erling Haaland or Leo Messi.

“I am very clear in that I put the institution above the players, coaches, directors and executives,” he said.

“We are not going to make signings that alter our salary policy. We want to improve the team over individuals. I am not going to give any names because it would raise their price and it would do Barcelona a disservice.

“If Leo [Messi] wants to talk to me about returning to Barcelona, I would be delighted.”
