Barcelona have given the Spanish media reason to speculate for a few hours by cancelling their usual Christmas meal with journalists.
The club were due to hold an annual festive lunch this afternoon with the Press, whilst club President Sandro Rosell was also scheduled to hold a Press conference.
However, in a brief statement released this morning, Barca have confirmed that they have cancelled both arrangements, so far without explanation.
The club confirmed that reasons for the late change in plan will be provided later on. The club will still send two representatives to a scheduled journalism award ceremony that was to coincide with the meal.
