"I want to send a peaceful message, the club's economy is strong and solid.
"We invest 20 million euros in La Masia every season, which is undoubtedly the largest amount invested by any European Club in their football academies.
"We are not planning to raise the price of subscriptions and membership cards, we have very low prices compared to some of the biggest European Clubs. We love to stick to our famous character of the club.
"FC Barcelona have a net debt of 160 million euros, this is normal and we are calm about it, the future remains optimistic."
