Barcelona signings in serious danger of not playing against Rayo

The possibility of Barcelona being able to register their new signings in time for the opening day of LaLiga, where they face Rayo Vallecano on Saturday at 21:00 local time, is beginning to look increasingly complicated.

There are less than 48 hours left until the match and the Blaugrana have not yet activated the fourth economic lever or sent any documentation to LaLiga, so the response from LaLiga, which has to study everything in detail, may not arrive in time.

Barcelona have the possibility of activating the lever on Friday morning, but even so, they are already taking a gamble.

With the activation of the fourth lever, Barcelona could then register some of the signings, but not all of them. The club would then have to decide.

If it wants to register everyone, in addition to the fourth lever, it would have to reduce the wage bill (reduction of Busquets and Pique‘s salaries plus the release of Memphis Depay, for example).

But without that fourth lever, it is impossible for the club to register the signings, and the time limit is already very tight.

Dilemma for Xavi

The club has told Xavi in recent days to include the new signings in his preparations for the first LaLiga game against Rayo, but the coach may have to resort to plan B and opt for players such as Depay, who is on his way out, or Aubameyang. And in defense, Pique could come in.

Not only does Xavi need help on the pitch, but also off it, as the coach may have to hold his press conference on Friday without knowing whether he will be able to count on the signings or not.
