Barcelona remains with Real Madrid in the European Super League project after the abandonment of the other ten founding clubs and this opens up a new panorama for the Barça club before the organizations and its own social mass, taking into account that the partners continue to be its owners.

On Thursday morning, Joan Laporta, brand new president of the Blaugrana team, indicated that the European Super League "is absolutely necessary" and asked for a better distribution of the money. “We have a position of prudence. It is a necessity, but the last word in the end will be for the members”, said Laporta, who added: “The big clubs contribute a lot and we must participate in the economic distribution”.

Regarding the European Super League, the president of the Catalan club said that "it must be an attractive competition, based on sporting merits. We're open to an open dialogue with UEFA. I think there will be an understanding. We need more resources for this to be a show”.

Finally, the highest Blaugrana authority pointed out on this issue that although there has been pressure, "the proposal continues to exist". “There has been pressure on some clubs, but the proposal still exists. Investments are very important, salaries are very high and all this has to be taken into account in the same way as sporting merits”, he concluded.
