Losing a main sponsor

According to Spanish media, one of the biggest online retailing company will not resume its contract with Barcelona. The deal with Rakuten was first signed in October 2016 (for four seasons) to successfully promote on their shirts where in return the club was paid 55 million euros each year (beginning from 2017-18). Because the agreement contained a clause of extension to one more year, at October 2020 this sum was cut by 25 million with the explanation reason out of the appearance of the epidemic, thus the team received 30 million euros (starting of 2021 season). Expiring date of the contract is 30 June 2022, and last Thursday it was decided that it will not be renewed.
