Eduard Romeu, economic vice-president of the club, has explained in his intervention in front of the partners that "the League is the organism that centralises the rights of the professional clubs. 60% of the income proceed of the national market and 40% of the international. In the season 20/21 the total income were 1.796 million euros. The League remains 135 millions. The Premier bends to the League, with 3.633 millions. The Bundesliga is with 1.440 millions and the Series To with 1.313 millions".

Inside the negotiations are trying to limit the income and the profit of the investor. We base us in some forecasts that presents the League", standing out that "the investors assume risks. And the Spanish League could do a glorious investment and approach to the Premier. We do not pose us an operation above the 25 years".

During his intervention, Romeu explained that "have several proposals and will take the best option. From a percentage of revaluation we can limit this profit, that would give us back reducing the term", standing out that "we ask until a maximum of 25% and each ten percent minimum 200 millions to a time limit of 25 years".
