BARCELONA (SPAIN) – Storm in Barcelona. During the El Larguero broadcast of the Spanish radio Cadena Ser, the link between Barcelona and the I3 Ventures company was reported. El Larguero has also published a 36-page dossier demonstrating his thesis.
As La Gazzetta dello Sport writes in an article by Filippo Maria Ricci, according to the radio, the club paid a million euros to the company, in six payments of less than 200,000 euros, figures for which there is no need for authorization from the come, to create and manage social accounts to discredit and throw mud on some people, including Messi and his wife Antonella, Piqué, Xavi, Guardiola, the president of Mediapro Roures, the former Catalan president Puigdemont.
Barcelona denied this news through statements made by President Bartomeu. His words are reported in the Gazzetta dello Sport.
“At no time did the club want to discredit anyone. Players, ex-players, politicians, managers, ex-managers, nobody. In 2017 we started to collaborate with some companies that monitored the flow of news about our club on social networks and on the web, as all the great teams do.
But when we found out that some of them were related to people who posted negative comments about people related to Barcelona, we immediately terminated the contract. We will protect ourselves legally against those who claim otherwise. "
Despite this dutiful denial, Bartomeu is in trouble. The Barcelona president is likely to jump after this scandal. In Spain they are already talking about Barcelona's new elections to replace it (source La Gazzetta dello Sport).
