Speaking ahead of Barcelona’s Joan Gamper Trophy match against Tottenham Hotspur, club vice-president Rafa Yuste assured fans that the registration of new signings and contract renewals will be taken care of.

With the season set to start in less than a week, Barça have just 13 players registered with La Liga, of which two (Ousmane Dembele and Franck Kessie) will soon be leaving.

As such, there are some concerns growing with regard to the matter, but Yuste allayed all those fears and said:

“We have been working for a long time to be able to register the players and soon we will have very good news. We are working so that it will be before Sunday,” he said.

Talking about Dembele, who is on his way to PSG this summer, Yuste said that negotiations were ongoing for his departure and the club hoped to put the matter behind them as soon as possible.

“We are still negotiating with PSG for Dembele and we hope to reach an agreement soon for the good of all parties,” said Yuste.

The Barcelona vice-president was also asked about the rumours of Neymar returning to the club this summer, but he refused to give much away on that matter, saying:

“I’m not here to feed into rumours.”

On the shift to the Montjuic Olympic Stadium, Yuste said: “Yesterday I came to watch the training session, I spoke to Xavi and some of the players and we all got a great impression. The grass and the infrastructures are very good.

“We have built a stadium at Barça’s level. We hope that this stadium will be our second home and that we will make it our own.”

Sending a message to the club members to turn up and support the team, Yuste added: “I am here to tell the members that we have a very competitive team, to enjoy the signings and the young players who are here. The market is not closed yet. Last year we filled the pitch and this year we will delight the fans.”
