Some West Bromwich Albion fans are absolutely delighted with the news that Barcelona are in dire financial trouble and thus, could go bust.
You would be forgiven for wondering why the Baggies would have any animosity towards a club that, in all fairness, is competing at a level way above the Midlands outfit. However, the Hawthorns side do have a reason to be annoyed with the Champions League giants. In January 2019, the La Liga side completed the signing of youngster Louie Barry, who has since moved to Aston Villa. According to The Express and Star, though, Barcelona have not yet paid the £235,000 they owe West Brom.
