Pique Once Tried to Buy a Barcelona Stake

We reveal, among other compelling news in football today, Gerard Pique once attempted to purchase a stake in Barcelona Corporate. Yes, indeed, Pique once tried to buy a Barcelona stake – that’s how much he loves the Catalan, La Liga club.

Over the course of 13 years (he joined in 2008) with Barca, Pique’s growing devotion to Barcelona has been well-documented.

In fact, the defender recently even took a significant pay cut to assist the club in navigating its financial difficulties.

We have reported the football news about him and other loyal players, like Lionel Messi, accepting salary cuts for Barcelona.

Moreover, he has discouraged even the slightest of transfer rumuors by vowing to retire at Barcelona, and even become club president.

Pique Once Tried to Buy a Barcelona Stake

Indeed, most everyone expects Barcelona centre-back Gerard Pique to play an important role at the club even after retirement.

Predictions call for him to become a club president in the future, once his playing days are over.

According to a recent report, furthermore, he also, once in the past, attempted to purchase one of the club’s holdings.

Crónica Global via Diario AS claim that Pique and his company Kosmos once attempted to buy a stake in Barcelona.

They offered to buy as much as 49 per cent (just below the cut for majority ownership) of Barcelona Corporate.

Barcelona Corporate manages several aspects of and around the football club. This includes Barcelona licensing, Barcelona studios, the Barcelona Innovation Hub, and the Barcelona Academy.

However, when Pique made this offer, former president Jose Maria Bartomeu was in power.

And the former president chose to reject Pique’s bid for this huge stake. This was because Bartomeu felt the deal would have favoured a current club employee.

According to reports, Bartomeu did, however, invite Pique to any future meetings involving bids for Barcelona Corporate.
