"I can announce some extraordinary news," he said. "[On Monday], the board of directors approved the acceptance of the requirements to participate in a future European Super League, a project promoted by the big clubs in Europe which will guarantee the future financial sustainability of the club. 

"We can say with pride that we are the highest valued club in the world. We have achieved that ahead of clubs owned by States and billionaires, all while keeping the club in the hands of the members. And the European Super League guarantees the club will remain in the members' hands." 

Bartomeu did not clarify whether joining a European Super League would mean leaving the Spanish league or the Champions League.
