Barcelona set to receive €340m from Spotify sponsorship deal: Reports

According to El Nacional, Barcelona are set to receive up to €340m as part of their sponsorship deal with Spotify.

Some Spotify employees attended the recent match between Barcelona and Atletico Madrid which is further proof that the deal is about to be announced. The money comes on top of the €1.5bn loan the club secured from Goldman Sachs. Part of the funds will be directly used to bring the reinforcements that Xavi Hernandez wants before next season.

Spotify is set to strike a sponsorship deal with FC Barcelona, ​​one of Europe’s leading football clubs.

Real Madrid and Florentino Perez are expected to make a number of high profile signings this summer as part of their Galactico project. One of them is Frenchman Kylian Mbappe, a player Madrid have been linked with for quite some time. Barcelona are looking to compete with their biggest rivals by using incoming funds to finance reinforcements.

Real Madrid already have the best team on paper and are in a good position to win the league this season. According to El Nacional, one player Barcelona have acknowledged as an answer to Mbappe is Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland.

Barcelona Set To Sign Erling Haaland To Fight Galactico Signings From Real Madrid?

The money from the Spotify deal comes at the right time for Barcelona. They were forced to see Ousmane Dembele’s contract and signed four new signings in January. However, Xavi still wants a long-serving striker to be signed with a right-back, defender and at least one midfielder.

According to reports, Real Madrid are already close to a deal for Mbappe and were initially considering signing Haaland this summer as well. However, Karim Benzema’s continued good form has forced Florentino Perez to look for alternatives. One player who has been linked is Bayern Munich’s Serge Gnabry.

Of course, Madrid will be looking to move on to several players themselves this summer, including Eden Hazard and Brazilian Rodrygo. Gnabry is a cheaper alternative and can slot into the right wing position immediately. However, Barcelona will know that only signing Erling Haaland can compare to Kylian Mbappe.

The Norway international has everything to succeed at the highest level and has scored at an unreal pace for Borussia Dortmund. With Barcelona already behind Madrid in terms of squad quality, the upcoming summer is set to have a major impact on the long-term fortunes of both clubs.
