At home Barcelona continues to hold the particular financial situation that has not prevented the Blaugrana to spend over 150 million euros in this purchasing campaign but what for the moment it does not allow new players to be registered. This is due to the stringent rules adopted by the La Liga regarding the economic status of each club which currently does not allow the registration of purchases. Lewandowski, Raphinha, Koundé, Christensen and Kessie, none of the newcomers have yet been included in the lists but for the last two in particular the situation is becoming increasingly complicated and uncertain.
THE CLASOLE – Both Christensen and Kessié, who arrived on a free transfer from Chelsea and Milan respectively, they could always free of charge terminate the contract that binds them to the Catalan club. This indiscretion was reported by ESPN, according to which the two players have a clause in the contract that provides for the possibility of going to zero in case of failure to register at the beginning of the championship. THE Blaugrana they will debut on Saturday against Rayo Vallecano; there are therefore only three days left before this clause enters into force. Despite this, the president, Joan Laporta remains optimistic that all new signings and the two players who have renewed the expiring contract, namely Dembelé and Sergi Roberto, will be registered in time. At worst, ESPN reports, the Barcelona will ask Christensen and Kessié’s agents to wait until the end of the month, that is, until they have the opportunity to put them on the lists.
ATTEMPTS – To respect the rules introduced by La Liga, Barcelona sold 25% of the television rights for 25 years plus 24% of Barca Studios for € 600 million. Additionally, the club is looking to sell another major stake in Barca Studios and has reopened dialogues with Pique and Busquets to renegotiate their salaries. Attempts that in Barcelona they hope will be enough to register all the new signings. In this sense, help could also come from the market by “getting rid” of those players who are now out of the project such as Memphis Depay and Samuel Umtiti.
