Barcelona are reportedly close to finalising their new shirt sponsorship deal with Qatar Airways, according to a report in Spanish media.
Spanish sports daily Marca reports that the sponsorship deal, said to be worth at least $325 million over four years, will be presented to club members at the Barcelona’s general assembly later this month.
The newspaper reports that club president Josep Maria Bartomeu will push for the deal to be sanctioned, which may be increased between now at October 24, when the club will hold its 2015 Ordinary General Assembly.
Qatar Airways is believed to have agreed to pay $73 million (65m euro) per season until 2020, with another $33 million to be paid as a ‘signing bonus’.
