FC Barcelona is not off the hook.
The Spanish media El Confidencial reports that the Negreira affair concerning the payment of more than seven million euros to Enriquez Negreira, then vice-president of the Technical Committee for Referees (CTA), could have serious consequences for the Catalan club in European Cup.
UEFA would closely follow the progress of the investigation and could take action.
The institution has sent a letter to the Spanish Federation to request more complete information on the matter.
