Barcelona look set to splash the cash on Chelsea striker Didier Drogba.
Drogba, who is currently at the African Cup of Nations with the Ivory Coast, has made no secret of his desire to leave Stamford Bridge.
Spanish paper AS has reported that the funds are available to bring the highly-sought-after striker to the Nou Camp.
It is thought that Barca sports chief Txiki Begiristain will now start to negotiate with Chelsea immediately in order to get their man.
Barca will have to fight off competition from Bayern Munchen, Real Madrid and AC Milan to land the Blues star.
