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 up to six top players in July, including Bayern Munich superstar Robert Lewandowski and rising French defensive ace Jules Kounde.
However, Barça have yet to even register one of these new signings due to the club’s inflated wages. It forced the Catalans to make last-minute changes to their squad and even renew the terms of some existing stars.
In addition, the club has activated their fourth economic lever, which should help them balance their books ahead of the new season.
According to Gerard Romero, La Liga is already studying the Barcelona case today. They review all four economic levers that have been activated so far and identify the club’s checks and balances for the 2022/23 campaign.
La Liga has also appointed two auditors for the job and it looks like the Spanish Football Authority may soon come up with their decision on Barcelona’s request to register all new players.
The current cap for La Liga’s wage bill is around €580 million. And while Barcelona have a massive turnover heading into the new season, they are actively working on solutions to potentially reduce their wage bill.
One of the maneuvers could see them offer renewed terms for star player Frenkie de Jong, although the club risk losing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang as well, especially with interest from Chelsea.
