Barcelona comments on an offensive rumor about Pique

Barcelona refuted a rumor spread recently about the defender of the Catalan team, “Gerard Pique”.

Several reports had claimed that Gerard Pique's company tried to buy the fourth economic leverage that the club did last month, when he sold 24.5% of the rights of the club's studios to Orpheus Media. 

And the newspaper Ara indicated that many companies were interested in buying the Barcelona asset, including the company of Gerard Pique, but "Juan Laporta", Barca president, rejected the order, because it violated the club's ethical code.

Barcelona commented on this matter, in an official statement, saying: “In light of the information published today in the newspaper Ara, the club strongly denies that the president received an offer to buy part of Barcelona Studios from first team player Pique or his company.”

"The club finds it regrettable that unconfirmed information has spread which affects the status and honor of its athletes in Barcelona," Barcelona added.
