According to the prestigious newspaper Mundo Deportivo, two crypto companies, Binance and FTX, are at the forefront of the funding race.
Binance is no stranger to football as they have sponsored FC Lazio and FC Porto before. Meanwhile, FTX has been active on the other side of the globe, collaborating with baseball and basketball clubs in the US. It is reported that anyone trying to strike a deal with Barcelona is need an offer of around 60 million euros a year or more. The famous football club asked for such money with current sponsor Rakuten, but the Japanese company refused to respond to the request. However, Barcelona CEO Ferran Reverter has confirmed that Rakuten is still talking with the club. The contract between the two parties is expected to expire in the summer of 2022.
