Barcelona will return to Asia

Speaking to the club's official media, Barcelona marketing vice-president Jaume Ferrer has confirmed that Barcelona will soon return to Asia:

"Now we are back in the USA because after the treble and thanks to the interest in MLS, the American market offers high expectations and we have been able to charge as much for games as we did in Asia. In the future, FC Barcelona will probably alternate their tours between America and Asia, where we will certainly will return."

Catalan sports paper El Mundo Deportivo claims that Barcelona wanted to return to Asia this summer and the plans for a tour would already have been concrete.

But when Barcelona received a new proposal from the organizers of the tour in the United States, who raised their bid from a fixed fee of 1,1 million dollars to a fee of 1,9 million dollars for each game, Barcelona would have decided to change the plans last minute.
