Salvat wants declaration on personal estates

At the presentation of his project last week, Barcelona presidential candidate Santiago Salvat has said that his team aims for financial transparency:

"We want to put an end to the lack of openness on the finances of Barça. Among other things, all members of my board team will therefore declare their personal estates before a notary.

We will also sign a contract that excludes any business relationship of ourselves, our closest family members or companies in which we take part with FC Barcelona.

We nevertheless won't talk about lifting the veils because we don't want to make promises we maybe won't be able to fulfil. We don't want to use empty words. One of our goals is to change the statutes to give more participation to the general assembly and the club members. Barça is owned by the members."
