The economic mismanagement, especially in regard to player contracts and wages, has been a source of constant headache for the club for the last few seasons. The huge contracts offered to players in the later years of Bartomeu’s regime made it extremely difficult for the club to offload some of the highly paid, but low-performing players.

However, significant work has been done in this regard, and the situation has improved over the last year. Still, FC Barcelona have been walking a tightrope in regard to La Liga’s Financial Fair Play rules, as the league executives hold that the club has already gone beyond its wage bill limit and even the club was fined by La Liga for breaching Financial Fair Play rules recently.

The latest developments in this registration of Gavi as a senior professional in Barcelona’s first team have seen La Liga being dealt a blow. According to reports from Relevo, The Barcelona Commercial Court No. 10 has given a precautionary ruling which allows the club to register Gavi as a first-team player before the winter transfer deadline approaches at midnight today. A complaint in this regard had been filed by FC Barcelona’s legal team last Friday.

However, the situation is far from being cleared, as the court is yet to hear arguments from La Liga’s legal representatives, and the current order is only a provisional one. La Liga has already declared its intent to defend their position on how registering the contract of Gavi was against the financial protocol of the league.

In case La Liga is able to convince the court about the necessity of upholding the Financial Fair Play rules, the court can allow La Liga to unregister Gavi even after the transfer window has closed.
