Barcelona president Laporta leaves door open to CVC commitment

Barcelona president Joan Laporta has left the door open to joining the CVC Capital investment agreement.

As things stand, Barça, along with Real Madrid and Athletic Club, are still out of the agreement but things could change.

"As it was presented to us, no," Laporta told Sport. "If they reformulate it, and we already had a meeting with them, we will study it again. The CVC project's only been explained to us with power points, we still don't have the documents we'd have to sign.

"Barça cannot say yes officially without studying the document properly. For now, given what they've explained to us, we don't like it. Yes, we would receive 270 million euros, but as debt. They say it's an investment or a loan... so they can give me the documents and we will study it.

"To use 10 percent of our future television rights for half a century as a guarantee, no. Barça cannot sign a contract with their eyes closed even it the dangling carrot is worth 270 million euros. They know we have a complicated financial situation and maybe they're using us."
