Barcelona to hold talks with La Liga over summer transfer operations

It remains no secret that FC Barcelona have struggled to comply with La Liga’s rather strict financial and regulatory rulings on more than one occasion. Led by the ever-enigmatic Javier Tebas, FC Barcelona now plan on holding talks with the league representatives over a possible solution to their varying contentions.

The examples of said contentions can be dated back to a time as far back as when Lionel Messi was still at the club. Following the rather disastrous mismanagement of funds and assets under Josep Maria Bartomeu during his reign as president of the club, La Liga forced FC Barcelona to take an ultimatum with their greatest asset. The legendary Argentine would be forced to part ways with his home and club.

Recent examples of these two parties not being able to submerge on agreements can be seen in the case of Barcelona youngster Gavi’s renewal. The player was initially not even allowed to be registered as a first-team player, yet courtesy of his club taking things to a higher legal power, the ruling went in favor of Barcelona.

Yet, as most would think this to be the end of Gavi’s arc regarding his renewal, Javier Tebas himself implied that the renewal may still be investigated and there remains a rather ominous hint to his wordings towards the youngster’s new contract.

The entirety of the previous summer window also serves as a great recollection of issues created by La Liga’s financial regulations. Players like Jules Kounde and Franck Kessie were in constant doubt over their registrations within the club, yet FC Barcelona had to provide certain guarantees to the league itself just to be able to finalize the registrations of said players.

Now, as reports from Achraf Ben Ayad suggest, the Catalan club may not even have enough of an allowance to spare for their summer targets in the near future. Consequently, taking this issue to La Liga early will be a positive step in the right, progressive path.
