Barcelona, who boast footballing superheroes like Lionel Messi and Philippe Coutinho, are in negotiations with Disney’s Pixar to produce an animated movie.

Negotiations have opened between the Camp Nou outfit and the renowned animation studio, which has produced classics such as Toy Story, The Incredibles and Finding Nemo.

Spanish journalist Rocco Steinhauser recently revealed that talks were underway and, although no deal has been done as yet, he believes an agreement could soon be reached.

Steinhauser told Goal on the proposed project: “Barcelona and Pixar have been discussing an animated film for a few weeks.

“I know it is being discussed in the high offices of Barcelona and that president [Josep Maria] Bartomeu is dealing with the talks directly.

“There’s nothing closed, so the negotiations do not mean that we are definitely going to see a Pixar film about Barcelona, but there is a big chance that it will finally happen.”
