Madrid, Dec 3 (EFE) .- The president of LaLiga, Javier Tebas, considered the financing proposal made by Real Madrid, Athletic Club and Barcelona to the rest of the clubs as unfeasible as an alternative to the agreement with the CVC fund and pointed out that “they seek confusion “.
“It turns out that it is Anas Laghrari (CEO of Key Capital and the Superliga disaster) that FP sends” (Florentino Pérez) “to make a proposal with such ignorance of the legal and financial situation of the @LaLiga clubs that it is INVIABLE. They seek confusion and continue to manage from the bar, “he said on social media.
Following the publication in some media of the letter sent by these three clubs in which a hypothetical offer of financing is transferred, at 2.5-3% interest at 25 years, by JP Morgan, Bank of America and HSBC, Tebas insisted that the agreement with the CVC fund “is an investment operation and not a financing one.”
“The CVC operation is an investment operation with an industrial partner, not a financing one, FP knows (Abertis / CVC). Now FP” remembers “the @LaLiga clubs, (those with the uninteresting matches) and That he ignored when he was preparing the SUPERLEAGUE, “he said.
LaLiga, whose Delegate Committee unanimously approved the agreement with CVC presented last August, plans to definitively close the operation in the Assembly that will be held on December 10.
The commitment with CVC Capital Partners, a British investment fund with previous experience in the sport in rugby, volleyball, tennis, Moto GP and Formula 1 competitions, provides for a loan of close to 2,100 million euros without interest, in exchange for the value 9% of the audiovisual rights generated by the competition during the next 50 years.
LaLiga has indicated that “the hypothetical financing offer” now offered by the three clubs that oppose the agreement with CVC -REal Madrid, Barcelona and Athletic- shows that the intention is to derail a project that endangers their individual objectives, although to they have to destroy the collective future of the competition and their clubs. ”
For the employers, “submitting an offer on the night of December 2 knowing that the Assembly is going to be on December 10, and knowing the operation from August 12, shows that the intention is to derail a project that puts their individual objectives are in jeopardy, even if for this they have to destroy the collective future of the competition and their clubs. ”
“Only in a first reading of the financing offer it is surprising that it is impossible to fulfill for the majority of the participating clubs in the competition, including FC Barcelona. The operation presented in this letter is based on an improvised proposal elaborated without the rigor minimum required, “he indicated.
