Barcelona’s financial and registration issues will be resolved in order for their new players to be available, according to LaLiga president Javier Tebas, who claims he has received promises to that effect.
The Catalans are having a spectacular summer after reaching agreements to sign Raphinha and Robert Lewandowski.
Jules Kounde, a defender for Sevilla, is also on the verge of moving to Barca in a lucrative deal.
Their extravagant spending is rather unexpected given the club’s well-known financial problems.
LaLiga’s strict player registration regulations are another issue that has some worried about how new players like Andreas Christensen, Franck Kessie, and others will be able to play for Barca in 2022–2023.
Tebas told Sport: “They have sold 10 percent of their TV rights for €207m. Then they increased that share to 25% which I think gives them some €350m more.
“That would be €500m and I think they have another, third lever of around €200m. With that and if they manage to get some players to leave, this explains the possibility of these signings.
“They have been able to sell assets, which was something they needed to do, and to reduce salaries – that’s what allows them to sign.”
On August 13, Barcelona will play its first Liga match against Rayo Vallecano.
