Barcelona ends 2009 with euro8 million net profit

Barcelona closed its record-breaking 2009 with a net profit of euro8 million ($11 million).
The Spanish champion said Thursday it earned euro222.8 million ($312 million) between July and December, an increase of nearly 20 percent over the same period last year.
Champions League profits, a preseason tour of the United States, an exhibition game in Kuwait and new sponsorship deals all added income. Barcelona also paid 27 percent more over the first half of the 2009-10 season than during the same period last year.
Much of the increase came from player signings _ with $66 million (then euro45 million) paid to Inter Milan for striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic _ and team bonuses after the club won all six competitions it competed in.
