The club’s financial situation means that the two players who are reported to have made a deal cannot be registered for next season.
Barcelona cannot register Andreas Christensen and Franck Kessie for next season due to Financial Fair Play issues.
Christensen and Kessie have not officially announced from Barca about the signing of the two players, but now there are reports that say that Blaugrana will not be able to register both of them for the 2022/23 La Liga season.
According to European transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, both contract deals have been agreed but due to Financial Fair Play, they cannot be registered.
“Barcelona will not change their plans on Christensen and Kessie,” Fabrizio wrote in a post on Twitter.
“Both deals have been agreed and finalized on free transfers – they cannot be registered yet due to Financial Fair Play issues.”
“Both players have received ‘guarantees’ from Barca. It’s just a matter of time.”
Christensen and Kessie were brought in by Barca for free after their contracts with their respective clubs expire at the end of this month.
The Denmark international has played for Chelsea since 2013, while Kessie has been with AC Milan since 2017 (his first two seasons on loan from Atalanta).
In addition, quoted from SPORT, Barca’s poor financial condition was the main factor they could not register players, including Sergi Roberto.
“Probably the economic situation that Barcelona is in,” wrote in SPORT.
For now, they cannot register any of the three targets [termasuk kontrak baru Roberto] to La Liga. “
“Obviously, they could have reached an agreement with Robert Lewandowski, but it would have been very different when they had to pay Bayern and then register him.”
