However, according to the newspaper Sportthe club did not obtain permission to register the contracted in this window: Lewandowski, Raphinha, Kessié, Koundé and Christensen.

For the Catalans to be able to sign them up, it will be necessary to reduce the club’s salary sheet, which still exceeds the ceiling required by La Liga, and present a new source of revenue.

Last Monday, in the midst of a presentation by defender Koundé, President Joan Laporta announced the sale of 25% of the Barça Studios, for 100 million euros. This would be one of the ‘levers’ to raise funds and make the registrations, but La Liga says that the amount is not yet accounted for in the club’s revenues. The team’s board continues in negotiations with the league.

Two players quoted to be traded, so that the team reaches the required economic situation, are the Dutch Frenkie De Jong and Memphis Depay. The first had its name linked to Manchester United and Chelsea. The second was involved in rumors with Juventus. It is worth remembering that, in addition to the reinforcements, Barcelona would be prevented from registering the new contracts of Sergi Roberto and Dembélé.
