08/05/2022 Act. at 17:20 CEST LaLiga has already informed the Blaugrana club that it does not meet the essential requirements Barça will need to activate the fourth lever, further lower the wage bill and sell players Joan Laporta, president of FC Barcelona , assured in the official presentation of Robert Lewandowski that the Blaugrana club had presented all the documentation to LaLiga to obtain the registration of all the signings. The top Blaugrana leader was very confident, although he announced that they were awaiting the response of those responsible for the competition. Laporta came to estimate the resources generated in recent weeks at 868 million euros and explained that he had worked “very well to clean up the entity and have fair play”. Barça has been holding regular meetings with LaLiga for weeks to evaluate the situation and the reality, according to employer sources, is that the Blaugrana club, for the moment, does not meet the necessary requirements to register the five signings (Lewandowski, Koundé, Kessie, Christensen and Raphinha) and the two ‘renewed’ footballers (Dembélé and Sergi Roberto). LaLiga has already informed the Barça economic team of this circumstance. According to these same sources, the Blaugrana club will need to activate the fourth lever (the sale of the other 24.5 percent of Barça Studios) and further lower the current wage bill, which is well above the limit allowed by LaLiga. From the employer’s association it is also specified that Barça, likewise, must carry out several player sales (Frenkie De Jong and Memphis, preferably) to adjust to the essential parameters to register the new signings. It is very likely that at the beginning of next week Barça will activate that fourth lever to be able to start with the inscriptions with the aim that most of these seven footballers are available to Xavi for the start of LaLiga, which is on the 13th of August before the Ray. Although there is time until August 31, which is when the registration period for all official competitions closes.
