Real Madrid top Forbes’ most valuable teams list

Gaspart – the vice president of the Royal Spanish Football Federation – was also asked about a scandal in the 1990s involving Barca and Madrid.


“The only thing Real Madrid do is harm football and if I was a Granada player I’d be offended, because it suggests I can be bought and that it’s an indecent campaign”, Gaspart is quoted as saying by AS.

“I believe in football and its honesty”.

A loss, however, combined with a Madrid victory, would culminate a spectacular collapse for a Barcelona side that established a Spanish record with 39 games without a loss across all competitions midway through the season.

“Every team wants to go out and win”. I had never heard of these things [briefcases] before coming to Spain. We’re going to treat it as a party, we’re going to enjoy it and we’ll be under no pressure no matter what happens.

Suarez has scored 37 league goals this season, four more than Cristiano Ronaldo, but he insists winning the Pichichi Trophy would count for little if Barca blow the title on Saturday.

“I hope we take advantage”.

A win at Granada would give Barcelona back-to-back titles and an eighth league title in 12 years.

“We aren’t dependent on other teams’ results”, he said.

“Escalating payouts from television agreements, shirt and kit deals, sponsors, and the Champions League are continuing to fuel higher values for the world’s top soccer teams”, Forbes said on 11 May.

“Ultimately, we’re not only playing against the opposition, but ourselves”, he told ESPN. In the Copa del Rey final it depends on us and Sevilla.


“In the worst moments we have always come back stronger, and this will be one of them”.
