Laporta went on to express his gratitude to the Barcelona captains who agreed to salary cuts to give the club a much-needed financial injection.
"The reduction [of the expenditure] is important, [as] we have gone from 110 to 80 percent," added Laporta.
"I want to congratulate the executives and the financial department of Barcelona for their work, and all those who have worked tirelessly and extraordinarily.
"And we have some heroes in [Gerard] Pique, [Jordi] Alba, [Sergio] Busquets and we will seal [the deal with] Sergi Roberto.
"What they have done is admirable. They are committed to the club, to the members. It is admirable. And we will continue with other players, such as [Samuel] Umtiti and others from the first team. We are in a process that is not easy.
"First the captains have set an example, and now we will continue with others."
The Barcelona coach also explained that he decided to keep Ronald Koeman because his football philosophy fits with what the club represent.
