La Liga’s new deal with CVC has been met with conflicting feelings. While a big influx of cash will be injected into marketing the league better long term, there is a sense that La Liga took this deal out of desperation because of the financial situation they are in. That financial desperation is relevant for almost everyone.

But CVC tried to make a deal with Serie A before, and the judgement received by Juventus and AC Milan then was that the valuation (2b investment at that time) was too low.

Our own Kiyan Sobhani reported today that Real Madrid don’t feel this deal is great for them.

“Per source, Real Madrid feel the CVC / La Liga deal is good news for the league, but not specifically for themselves,” Sobhani tweeted today. “They don’t want everyone to rely on other sources to get out of the financial mess when they can do it themselves.”

Basically, they feel it’s a cop out for others.”

It will be interesting to see more details in the coming hours and days. There is also a feeling in Spain that Barcelona benefits the most out of this, and are bailed out from their financial mismanagement in past years.
