Barcelona are bracing themselves for a busy day ahead as the club look to register all of their new signings ahead of the season opener against Rayo Vallecano on Saturday.
The Catalans signed as many as six top-quality players in the month of July including Bayern Munich superstar Robert Lewandowski and emerging French defensive ace Jules Kounde.
However, Barça are yet to even register one of these new signings due to the club’s inflated wage bill. It has forced the Catalans to make last-minute changes in the squad and even renew the terms of some of the existing stars.
In addition, the club have activated their fourth economic lever that should go a long way in helping them balance the books ahead of the new season.
According to Gerard Romero, La Liga are already studying the case for Barcelona today. They are reviewing all the four economic levers that have been activated so far, and figuring out the club’s checks and balances going into the 2022/23 campaign.
La Liga have appointed two auditors for the job as well and it appears the Spanish footballing authority may soon come up with their decision, in regards to Barcelona’s plea of registering all the new signings.
La Liga’s current cap for the wage bill stands at around €580 million. And while Barcelona have a massive turnover heading into the new season, they are actively working on solutions to potentially lower their wage budget.
One of the manoeuvres could see them offer renewed terms for star player Frenkie de Jong, although the club are running the risk of losing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang as well, especially amid interest from Chelsea.
