Barcelona could receive €700 million in 2023 if Super League plans goes forward.

According to the most recent information provided by Que T’hi Jugues, a decision regarding the legality of the ESL will be made on December 15th of this year. The Catalan giants will get a mind-blowing €700 million in the first half of 2023, assuming it is found to be legitimate.

Barcelona are in dire need of the ‘Super League’ funds as compared to other top European clubs

The gap between the top teams in La Liga and Real Madrid would have been more difficult to bridge this season if the La Liga giants had not adopted extreme measures amid tough times this summer.

Barcelona will stand to gain significantly from the creation of the European Super League, as the initial payout may imply that the majority of their current financial problems are resolved. With the approval of the culers, the club would ultimately like to be a part of any such league.
