Barcelona chief aims dig at Bayern Munich following Lewandowski transfer

FC Barcelona president Joan Laporta has aimed a dig at German powerhouse, FC Bayern Munich.

Barcelona recently signed Robert Lewandowski from Bayern, and the deal does appear to have angered a number of people in Germany.

One of which is Bayern manager Julian Nagelsmann, who was unsure how Barcelona were able to afford to sign Lewandowski or any other players.

Bayern boss Julian Nagelsmann said Barcelona is “the only club in the world that has no money but can buy every player”.

He added: “It’s kind of weird and kind of crazy for me but at the end they find solutions. I don’t know how.”

Now though, Laporta has responded to said comments on Friday, stating: “Comments from Germany? I would tell them that they should look at their bank account, that they just received important money for Lewandowski. They are distorting reality.”

Laporta then provided an update on Barcelona’s financial situation, which he suggests is much better now:

“It’s true, we were in a critical state,” said Laporta. “But the levers have gotten us out of that. And some people just don’t know that. They’re a step behind, and it’s a lack of information regarding our club.

“Our competitors see that we are signing top players, and they see that everyone wants to come to Barça. If that makes them uncomfortable, then you know that we are doing a great job.”
