Barcelona receive €100m Saudi shirt sponsorship offer, board stance revealed

Mundo Deportivo report that a Saudi Arabian company has submitted an offer of around €100m to become Barcelona’s main shirt sponsor.

The Blaugrana board are reluctant to accept it, in particular, because of Saudi Arabia’s poor human rights record. However, accepting it remains a possibility.

The Catalans’ current contract with Rakuten ends in 2022 and is not expected to be renewed.

The Japanese company pays €30m per season for their name featuring on Barcelona’s kits.

As reported by Marca back in October, the Catalans are looking to earn around €55m per year from a new sponsorship deal.

Mundo Deportivo do not state whether the €100m offer a Saudi company has made is a yearly payment or a total sum of a two- or three-year deal.

The newspaper reports the Catalans have received several other bid from potential sponsors
