Barcelona are still to register any new players before this weekend’s la liga opener with Rayo Vallecano.
barca have been wrestling with severe financial issues, which need to be addressed to comply with la liga’s strict financial regulations.
In effect that has meant the catalan giants have sold off huge amounts of their future income in order to comply and register new players.
However, Barcelona are still to satisfy la liga and are now working on activating what is being referred to as a fourth ‘financial lever’, a significant stake in their barca studios commercial arm, in order to comply.
In addition, long-serving defender Gerard Pique has taken a pay cut.
La Liga believes these changes will allow Barcelona to start registering new players, although there is a feeling that this may be done on an individual basis rather than all at once.
