LaLiga confirmed on Friday that Barca had made the income after a year of financial turmoil at the Nou Camp.

They sold 25 percent of their domestic TV rights for the next 25 years and 49 percent of the shares in their local TV production “Barca Studios”.

They’re allowed to spend a whopping £130m on players this summer.

It’s a far cry from the summer of 2021 when the liquidity situation was so dire that they were forced to sell Lionel Messi.

The superstar was believed to be on the verge of agreeing a new deal, but financial constraints meant the deal couldn’t go through.

The seven-time Ballon d’Or winner left for Paris Saint-Germain.

But thanks to the use of club assets this season, top scorer Robert Lewandowski confirmed his move from Bayern Munich.

Lewandowski, 33, forced an exit from the Allianz Arena and signed a four-year deal at the Nou Camp.

Barcelona paid £38m for the transfer with a further £4m in add-ons.

His release clause has been set at a staggering £426m should anyone try to buy the Poland international.

They also wrested Jules Kounde from Chelsea.

The Spanish side beat the Blues against the Sevilla centre-back in five years at a cost of up to £46million.

Kounde, 23, claimed team boss Xavi – previously a midfield genius at the Nou Camp – was a big decoy in Barcelona’s choice.

Andreas Christensen, Franck Kessie, Hector Bellerin and Marcos Alonso all came on free transfers.
