Barcelona banned from signing players this summer
La Liga president Javier Tebas has announced that Barcelona won’t be able to sign players this summer transfer window.
Tebas said so at the FT Business of Football summit in London on Thursday, according to The Sun’s Martin Lipton.
“As of today, Barcelona have no wiggle room in their budget for the next transfer window.
“Barcelona have been involved in questionable behavior which has impacted La Liga and we are acting accordingly. We have decided that they cannot sign any more players.
Barcelona spent over €150m last summer to sign Raphinha, Robert Lewandowski and Jules Kounde, while Franck Kessie, Hector Bellerin, Andreas Christensen and Marcos Alonso arrived at Camp Nou on free transfers.
Barcelona were under pressure to cut their squad last summer but only managed to offload Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Philippe Coutinho, while another big winner, Memphis Depay, joined Atletico Madrid in January.
However, according to Tebas, Barcelona won’t be able to register new players until more players are offloaded.
However, according to the Daily Mail, even if Barca sanction major departures, they will only be able to spend ‘two-fifths of that amount, meaning their budget would only be a maximum of around £71m’. .
