The new president at the Nou Camp, Sandro Rosell, has said there is a need to restructure the club\’s debt and even borrowed more money to pay the players\’ wages.
Silly man. What, restructure the finances, win La Liga and the Champions League, increase income and expect to get out of the financial woes that way. Surely not.
What Barca need is George Osborne and his buddy Danny Alexander in charge. They would wipe out all the debt within a single season, no problem. Sell Lionel Messi, Xavi, Iniesta, Villa, Abrahimovich, Puyol, Alves and Piqué. Simple, eh?
But then this is the problem with mutuals (Barca is owned by the fans).
When things do go tits up there\’s no external provider of capital.
