FC Barcelona cannot (yet) officially register its summer transfers with La Liga. The organization of the Spanish football league is said to have refused registrations, which means that the new players are not yet allowed to play matches. This is reported by various foreign media.

La Liga is said to have told Barca that the club must first sell one or more players to offset the expenses. It is known that the Catalans want to sell Frenkie de Jong for more than 80 million to Manchester United, but the Dutchman does not want that himself. Perhaps that transfer will have to come now.

Barcelona has already signed five new players this summer with Robert Lewandowski (45 million euros), Andreas Christensen (free transfer), Franck Kessie (free transfer), Raphinha (58 million euros) and Jules Koundé (50 million euros).

Together, these players have cost more than 150 million euros, but can therefore not play any matches for the time being. The same applies to the players who extended their contracts this summer – Ousmane Dembele and Sergi Roberto.

Barca must solve the problem before August 13. Then the first league game of the season against Rayo Vallecano is on the program.

Last winter, Barcelona had the same problem for a while, when they were unable to immediately register Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Ferran Torres.
