Barcelona "100%" in control of MLS team signings
Barcelona will be 100 per cent responsible for the playing staff at their MLS franchise. Barca chief Joan Oliver is overseeing the bid and said: "We have to build a team from scratch, which is competitive and has the philosophy of FC Barcelona. If we do not get any of these objectives right, this would be a risk as it would confuse people about our philosophy.
"The sporting responsibility is 100 percent Barca's."
