The Spanish newspaper El Pais claims that Barcelona spent a total of 300 million euros on the two big signings, Rafinha and Robert Lewandowski.
The same media claims that Barcelona will pay 60 million euros to Bayern for Lewandowski and that the Polish international will have a significantly higher salary than what was announced.
EL PAIS claims that the Catalan club will spend a total of 297 million euros for the compensation of these two football players, with bonuses and commissions of the managers, which is unusual for a heavily indebted club.
The president of Barca, Joan Laporta, who is with the team in Miami for the preparations, said that he is satisfied with the reinforcements in the current part of the transfer period, but announced that he plans to bring in another player.
“We brought Lewandowski, what was needed for our club, a great goalscorer. Because of Barcelona, he turned down Chelsea and PSG, who gave him a higher salary, but he is now our player,” said Laporta.
