Barcelona in serious problems for the registration of players


ESPN reports that Barcelona are now finding it more difficult than expected to find the necessary funding to sign new signings and contract renewals.

There are now concerns whether the likes of Ilkay Gundogan and Oriol Romeu could be signed before the start of the La Liga season.


Last summer, the club decided to sell 49 percent of Barca Studios to (24.5 percent) and Orpheus Media (24.5 percent).

However, those companies have renegotiated the percentage of their deals and left the club with the need to find another buyer.

Barcelona reportedly found one in a German company that was ready to pay 65 million euros for 16 percent and was on the verge of a deal.

But it is now said that confirmation of this is taking longer than expected due to some complications, with the parties still not fully agreeing on the terms.

Joan Laporta and the board will hope to finalize this deal soon because they need the money from the sale of 16 percent of the Catalan club’s studios to register their new arrivals as well as the players who sign new deals this year.
