Joan Laporta confirms a potential sponsorship deal with Spotify.
Music streaming platform Spotify will take over Rakuten as Barcelona’s shirt sponsor and is expected to feature on both men’s and women’s squad from next season.
The deal is reported to be worth around €280m and would also be granted the naming rights to the revamped Camp Nou.
The famous old Camp Nou will be undergoing a name change in the coming days.
Club president Joan Laporta believes that ‘Spotify’ is currently the best option for the club.
“We are working, everything is going quite well,” Laporta said, according to Spanish newspaper Marca. “We will announce it when the contract arrives from Spotify, then we will have to approve it at the general assembly of delegates.”
Laporta added: “After the negotiations that we have been carrying out for a few months, we thought that it was the best option, and we continue to think so. It links us to music and we think it’s a great decision.”
