With a host of players running the risk of being offloaded, Barcelona are planning a huge squad overhaul in the coming summer.

However, their activity in the summer market rests heavily on La Liga, who are yet to approve their economic viability plan that was sent last month. They were supposed to approve the plans at the start of the month, but nothing has transpired yet.

According to a recent report from Gerard Romero, La Liga will not approve Barcelona’s Financial Feasibility Plan today either.

This comes against the back earlier reports that suggested the authorities could approve the plans in the fourth week of May. Romero claims La Liga require more time to study the documents and audit the economic details.

Romero goes on to add that the authority has asked Barcelona for two more weeks before they can formally approve the plan. It is unclear as to why the procedure is taking such a long time, but it certainly does not bode well for Barcelona.

The Catalans will never quite figure out their economic limitations in the market this summer without La Liga formally approving their plans. Without any knowledge, it is going to be almost impossible for the club to gauge the ideal economic parameter, when it comes to pursuing a player.

Especially in the case of Lionel Messi, Barcelona need the plans to be approved before they can formally present the Argentine with an offer. But with the player receiving truly lucrative proposals from the Saudi clubs, time is running out for the Blaugrana.

The same can be said for Ilkay Gundogan and other top targets in the market, ultimately hurting Barcelona’s chances of building a solid team and competing for titles next season.
