- Reactions: Civil war in Barcelona: Messi accuses Abidal of "dirtying" the entire workforce
Barcelona has entered fully into the dirty war of social networks . According to information from Cadena Ser, the club chaired by Josep Maria Bartomeu would have paid about one million euros in six bills to the company I3 Ventures so that it, through fake Facebook and Twitter profiles , defended the interests of its maximum president. Even behind the backs of several of the directors of its board of directors, who, contacted by this newspaper, showed surprise and indignation. These profiles have been dedicated in recent times to attack presidents like Joan Laporta or Víctor Font , enemies declared as businessman Jaume Roures , former Barcelona players such as Pep Guardiola, Xavi Hernández or Carles Puyol , and even members of the current squad Barca, like Leo Messi or Gerard Piqué . "A very Spanish atmosphere is breathed in the Magic Box of Piqué. The soccer player has put aside his more political vision in search of the success of the competition", it could be read in one of the accounts, Justice and Dialogue, in November 2019 Many journalists have also been monitored.
According to the information released by the ' Què T'hi Jugues ' program of Ser Catalunya, Bartomeu's right hand in the club, Jaume Masferrer , traveled to Argentina in 2017, where the company has its headquarters, to establish the terms of the contract. Six bills worth 200,000 euros would have been paid. This amount is precisely the limit so that the contracts do not have to go through the delegated commission of the entity.
Some of the 'fake' accounts were created between October and November 2017 , when they started their activity. Beyond the praise of Bartomeu's work, they accuse Messi of delaying the renewal on his day at the direction of Jaume Roures, ridicule the wife of the Argentine forward, Antonella Roccuzzo , attack Piqué for the Davis Cup created by his company and for hiring the musical group Taburete (whose vocalist is the son of Luis Bárcenas), or even pointing to the squad when referring to the players as "frustrated and well-off".
Barcelona, waiting to issue a public statement in which it offers its version of the matter, confirms the hiring of said company. Although it also ensures that it was not aware of the content of these messages published on social networks.
