- Lewandowski, Kessie, Raphinha, Christensen, Sergi Roberto and Dembélé will be available against Rayo
- Barcelona, in addition, has come out of the excess cost limit for the sports squad requested by LaLiga, so it can now sign under the 1/1 rule
FC Barcelona has begun to register players. All the signings and the two renewals except Jules Koundé. Lewandowski, Kessie, Raphinha, Christensen, Sergi Roberto and Dembélé will be available against Rayo. The former Sevilla center-back, who is not yet 100 percent because he still lacks rhythm after undergoing surgery, will have to wait for the wage bill to be released.
Now, thanks to the activation of the last lever, the Barça club has come out of the excess of the cost limit for the sports squad requested by LaLiga, so it can now sign under the 1/1 rule, without having to submit to the rule 1/4 or 1/3. In other words, for every euro that goes out, another can come in.
Therefore, in order to register Koundé, Barça must either reduce the wage bill or release one of its players. The cases of Braithwaite, Umtiti, Frenkie de Jong, Dest, and Aubameyang could also enter this list.
Sergi Roberto and Dembelé needed to be registered and they already are too. They already appear on the web in the FC Barcelona squad. But they don’t appear on the transfer page because due to the system configuration, since they were already in the squad last year, they don’t appear there. It is a pure computer issue, but they are registered. And in the case of Gavi, he is registered with the subsidiary, which is why he does not appear in the first team on the LaLiga website. That yes, Gavi, like other players registered in the subsidiary, as soon as they are lined up for the first time with the first team, they will appear in the Barça squad on the LaLiga website.
