Barcelona fans hoping for a swift registration of new coach Hansi Flick might have to wait. The club, still grappling with crippling financial constraints, is struggling to even register players for the upcoming season.

This sensationally includes Flick himself, which is indicative of the extent of Barcelona’s economic crunch.

As Barcelona continue to deal with this turmoil, the club are facing a race against time to register some of the key players heading into the new season.

Priorities are set

According to MARCA, Gavi and Balde are reportedly non-negotiable when it comes to registration. The club view them as key players and will prioritize securing their spots in the squad once the wage bill allows.

Barcelona had secured new deals for both players a while ago and given their importance to the team, the club will prioritise registering them by the end of June.

Martinez and Roque face uncertain futures

The situation for other players is less certain. Vitor Roque, initially deemed expendable under Xavi Hernandez, might get a reprieve under Hansi Flick. However, his future hinges on his performance in the pre-season.

Inigo Martinez’s case is even more complex. With a hefty contract that mandates compensation if unregistered, Barcelona have found themselves in a bind.

The surplus of central defenders does not help his cause either. Ultimately, Flick will have to make a tough call between Inigo and Eric Garcia, who remains a top target for Girona.

The Catalans are already working on several economic levers, in an attempt to bring in some much-needed revenue. One of the key levers includes a new deal with Nike that could see the club earn significantly more, as part of their kit sponsorship.

The club are also desperately seeking funds to make up for the lost Libero deal, with the listing of their media arm in the US stock market emerging as one of the solutions.
