Many West Brom fans have reacted to the news that Spanish giants Barcelona could go bankrupt.
Barca still owe Albion around £300k for the transfer of Louie Barry who left The Hawthorns to move to the Spanish club in 2019.
Barry has since moved on and now plays for Aston Villa with the Baggies still yet to see any of the fee that they are due from one of the biggest football clubs in the world.

A recent Daily Mail article details how Barcelona have asked the banks to delay the repayments that the club are due to make as they may not be able to afford it.
The story goes on to claim that the club owe £178million to the banks and as a result, there are huge fears over the long term future of the historic club.
This points to poor ownership as Barcelona’s struggles on the pitch look to be reflected off it as key players like Lionel Messi may have to be sold to keep the club afloat.
There was very little sympathy from Baggies fans though as they continue to demand the fee that Albion are owed.
The feud between Albion and Barcelona is very one-sided but many Baggies fans are still very bitter about the Spanish giants not paying what they owe.
One fan even claimed that they wanted Barcelona to go bust though we think that may be an extreme punishment for not forking out 300k.
Here is how some West Brom fans reacted to the news about Barcelona.

Barcelona refused to pay us compensation (around £300K) after they lured Louie Barry from our youth set-up a year ago, before selling him to Aston Villa for around a million pounds profit!
They still haven’t paid us, by the way… https://t.co/z1WGPyohTP

Hope they go bust!

Trouble is even if they go bust someone will bail them out. Understand the debt is around £700m in total.
How are they still allowed to exist
