Barcelona are considering suing Serie A side Roma for possible damages caused after the Italian club pulled out of the Joan Gamper Trophy, according to The Athletic.
Barça were down to play Roma on 6 August at Camp Nou, however, it now appears that Jose Mourinho’s team have pulled out of the match.
“Barcelona announce that Roma have decided to unilaterally, without reason, withdraw from the agreed contract for both parties for the Joan Gamper Trophy game that was to be played on 6 August at Camp Nou in a fixture that was to see a men’s and women’s game once again,” Barça said.
“The club is working on finding a new opponent for this year’s edition. In the next 24 hours the return of money already spent on tickets will begin and the club wants to make it clear that the suspension of the games has been due to circumstances outside the control of Barcelona, the express wish of Roma.
“The club’s legal department is studying possible action against the Italian club for damages caused to Barcelona and its fans due to this unexpected and unjustified decision.”
