    Not but for real - the others are tongue in cheek, but this one might be an actual demise. How the heck do you pay off a billion in debts??

    Getting Messi off the wage bill would be a good start

    @Steveo

    Yeah, agree it's pretty unlikely, but I mean... Parma, Leeds - it's happened before. Yes, they were nowhere neat the size of Barcelona (at present) but they weren't tiny clubs either! A billion is a lot of money. A lot.

    @rdu

    Not sure that would even make a considerable dent. How much does he realistically earn? 50m a year? Even if it's 100m... still nowhere near enough, not to mention that losing it would impact a lot of their revenue streams very negatively. He might be a net financial gain for them for all we know!

    Owe about a billion
    Earn close to that each year

    Annual income - debt servicing - then pay off some of the amount owed when you can.

    I wont be buying them, but big football teams continue to entice new owners and investors

    Apparently, they still owe us £35m for Coutinho, 3 years on.
    If you're not sure what to do with the ball, just put it in the net, and we'll talk about the other options later... Bob Paisley.

    They've been run badly over recent years, wouldn't take too much to turn their situation around imo.
