Barcelona says revenues at the club hit a record 809m Pounds in the 2017-18 season.

The Spanish football giant and La Liga winner also said it was on track to achieve revenues of 1bn Euros by 2021.

Barcelona received a world record transfer fee of 200.6m pounds from PSG for Brazilian Neymar in 2017.

Since then the Catalan club has twice broken its transfer record on the signings of Ousmane Dembele and Philippe Coutinho.

As well as reclaiming the La Liga title from rivals Real Madrid during 2017-18, the club also won the Copa del Rey for a fourth successive season but they were knocked out of the Champions League by Italy’s Roma at the quarter-final stage.

Still in sports, eight-time Olympic champion Usain Bolt is in talks for a trial to play football in Australia.

Bolt has previously trained with clubs in Germany, Norway and South Africa.
