Barcelona cannot reportedly register their new signings Franck Kessie and Andreas Christensen

Barcelona, Six Sports

Barcelona’s planned summer rebuild under their able commander Xavi has hit a standstill, it seems.

They are said to be not in a position to register their new signings. This is because of their perilous financial situation.

Moreover, their wage bill is still said to be very high which is also posing a problem for the club to sign new players.

They were determined to pick up good players from the transfer market this summer. Therefore, they got in the market early to pick up star players.

However, because of the club’s present financial situation, two players have been kept on hold and have not been registered yet. These players officially joined the club on free transfers.

The Sport reports that if the La Liga were to start today then Kessie and Christensen could not be registered.

In the present situation, what can Barcelona do to sign new players?

The financial situation has repeatedly hampered the club’s transfer prospects over the year.

Whereas rumours continue to circulate of Robert Lewandowski and Leeds’ Raphinha joining Barcelona.

The club faced a similar situation in January during the signing of Ferran Torres after he arrived from Manchester City. Eventually, the cub did what they had to do to register the Spanish forward.

Therefore, Barcelona should now just let players go for free or sell them for a fee. Selling players for free would also relieve their wage bill.

The club is still plagued by the League’s ‘one in four regulation’. According to this rule, the clubs can only spend £1million for every £4million they save.

These restrictions, therefore, hurt their hopes of becoming a European giant once more and challenging the authority of Real Madrid.

It is being advised that Barcelona must encourage the return of ‘tourists’ to their city to improve their financial situation.

Therefore, currently, Kessie and Christensen would have to wait to be unveiled as Barca players.
