Barça have signed a deal with the Spanish giants to buy a 20,000-capacity stadium, which will not be used for their home matches.
The deal will not come into force until 2020.
It is understood the club have secured the rights to use the new stadium, in the municipality of Barcelona, for the next 10 years.
The deal was first reported by La Vanguardia, the Spanish football newspaper.
La Vanguardia said that Barça had received a loan from FC Barcelona in which the club had the right to use all of the land in the city for the development of a new stadium.
The Spanish club also own the land on which the current stadium is located.
Barcelona will use the land for the construction of a temporary stadium for the 2018-19 season, the paper said.
“The club has also committed to pay a fixed sum of €2.5 million for this loan,” La Vanguardi said.
The move is a huge coup for Barça, who have been struggling to get a stadium built in their new home, which they will replace with a brand new facility in 2019. “
This loan is contingent on Barça’s success in securing a permanent stadium in 2019, which is due to be completed in the autumn of 2020.”

Last year, Barça spent €30 million on the project and now want to recoup this amount, La Vanguardie said.
The move will be the biggest-ever deal for a football club in Spain.
It follows on from a previous deal signed in 2013 when the club received a €4.5-million loan from Barcelona.
In the deal, Barca also agreed to spend an additional €2 million on land around the new venue.
