Barcelona has reportedly been told this Friday that they may participate in the next edition of the Champions Leaguein the 2023/24 season.
That is what several reports in the Catalan media claim Joan Laporta and his board received this news from UEFA on Friday, when European football’s governing body completed its analysis of all information related to the ‘Negreira case’.
With such a decision, it means that the Catalan club will not be suspended from the next edition of the continental tournament, with the group stage draw on August 31 in Monaco.
Barcelona was convinced that there would be no UEFA ban
From the start, the club directors were convinced that there would be no penalty and Laporta has explained on several occasions he spoke Alexander Ceferin about the ‘Negreira case’ and that he believed there would be no ban.
Now, this Friday, this has been confirmed to the management of the Catalan institution.
Given that there was no statue of continental level restrictions in this case, UEFA could have banned it Barcelona if they had found cause to do so, but they have decided that there is no ground for it.
This news comes as a great relief Barcelonaeven if this verdict was the expected one.
