Barcelona playing Sundowns next week


Barcelona have confirmed they will travel to play a friendly against newly crowned South African champions Mamelodi Sundowns on May 16.

Sundowns had announced the match last week but the final details took time to organise causing speculation over whether it would actually take place.

The news has delighted fans keen to see some of the world’s best players take on their team.

However, others are questioning how much it cost Mamelodi Sundowns to bring the European giants to Pretoria, especially in light of the fact that the club’s billionaire owner Patrice Motsepe was alleged to have paid close to $1m to bring Barcelona out for a one-off friendly./BBCSport
