    Barcelona's board of directors will make a decision in January on whether to expand the Camp Nou or submit plans to move to a new stadium.

    The Spanish champions have commissioned a report over the viability of both projects with the objective to increase the capacity of their home ground to 105,000.

    Although progress was made at a meeting on Monday, the Barça directors will not announce their preferred option until early in 2014.

    A board spokesman Toni Freixa explained on the club's official website it had two choices: "The construction of a new stadium on the land on Diagonal, property which belongs to the University of Barcelona, or a profound remodelling project that would constitute a new stadium keeping the current structure of the Camp Nou.

    "Both would have a capacity of 105,000 spectators, the stadium would be covered, there will be a construction of a new Palau with a capacity of 12,000 spectators, an adjacent court with a capacity of 2,000 spectators, 6,000 new parking spots and access to the Ciutat Esportiva of the Miniestadi.

    "We've made advances, we have all the information and we're in a position to make a decision."

    Despite the sizeable financial outlay that would be involved, Freixa insisted any project would not harm the club, adding: "It needs to be viable from a technical perspective, urbanist and economic. We would never submit a project that would endanger the sustainability of the club."

    The Camp Nou is already the largest ground in Europe with a capacity of 99,354.

    Our new stadium, of course. What, did you imagine our 'special relationship' with Madrid would end any other way? Welcome to 'Real Madrid Castilla Inglaterra', baby!

    Re: Northumberland Development Project

    Yeah, this is Madrid's, unfortunately. As far as I can recall, our proposed stadium design is being altered by some new architects, so we'll probably need to re-submit the new design proposals to the council for approval, which will inevitably mean more delays. Someone on the skyscrapercity forums (can't remember exactly who, but he seemed ITK) said we were on course to start construction this summer, but considering the new planning that's apparently going on that seems overly ambitious.

    In short, not a peep officially, some work going on behind the scenes.

    Re: Northumberland Development Project

    Are the spammers guilty of similar? (not tax breaks but public funding/support) Or did Spurs expose these elements during the stadium row?(so now they're leasing) IIRC Are they not receiving a fat loan from Newham Council?

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/25410320


    Real Madrid and Barcelona are among seven Spanish clubs to be investigated by the European Commission (EC) over alleged irregular public funding.
    Fellow La Liga teams Osasuna, Athletic Bilbao, Valencia, Elche and second-tier Hercules are under investigation.
    Sporting clubs Real Madrid, Barcelona, Athletic Bilbao and Osasuna are accused of a corporate tax advantage of 5%.
    Real are alleged to have sold training ground land to the City of Madrid at an over-inflated price of 22.7m euros.
    Valencia-based clubs Valencia, Hercules and Elche are alleged to have received state-backed loans up to 75m euros.
    If the clubs are found guilty, the money would be redistributed back to the Spanish government.
    A commission statement read: "The EC has opened three distinct in-depth investigations to verify whether various public support measures in favour of certain Spanish clubs are in line with EU state aid rules."

    Spain's foreign minister Jose Manuel Garcia Margallo denied that the clubs had broken EU rules, adding: "The government will fight to defend Spanish clubs because they're also part of the Spanish brand."
    The investigation comes as Uefa, European football's governing body, begins to enforce its Financial Fair Play rules, encouraging teams to live within their own means.
    Proceedings could take months to conclude.
    The commission's statement continued: "The commission will firstly investigate possible tax privileges for Real Madrid, Barcelona, Athletic Bilbao, and Osasuna.
    "These four clubs are exempted from the general obligation for professional football clubs to convert into sport limited companies. The effect of this exemption is that these clubs enjoy a preferential corporate tax rate of 25% instead of 30% applicable to sport limited companies."
    "In another inquiry it will assess whether a widely reported land transfer between the City of Madrid and the club Real Madrid involved any state aid in favour of the club.
    "Real Madrid appears to have benefited from a very advantageous real property swap with the City of Madrid. This swap was based on a re-evaluation of a plot of land at a value of 22.7m euros, instead of its earlier supposed value in 1998 of 595,000 euros.
    "Finally, it will examine the compliance with EU state aid rules of guarantees given by the state-owned Valencia Institute of Finance for loans that were used to finance the three Valencia clubs - Valencia, Hercules and Elche - while those clubs were seemingly undergoing financial difficulties."
    Valencia are alleged to have received 75m euros, Hercules 18m euros, and Elche 14m euros.
    Joaquin Almunia, the commission vice-president in charge of competition policy, said: "Professional football clubs should finance their running costs and investments with sound financial management rather than at the expense of the taxpayer. Member states and public authorities must comply with EU rules on state aid in this sector as in all economic sectors."
