UPDATE on the FC Barcelona story: It is NOT an April Fool's hoax. April Fool does not exist in Spain. The equivalent is December 28, "el día de los inocentes". The best inocentada I remember was a few years ago Marca led with the story that the Camp Nou had been condemned and was to be demolished because of aluminosis. (At the time some older buildings from the Fifties were being torn down because this dangerous construction technique had been used, which made it believble until you remembered what day it was. That one got me for at least a couple of hours.) Anyway, here's the link from El Mundo Deportivo.
