La Liga President planning to oppose Gavi’s registration with Barcelona

Following a whirlwind of a transfer deadline day, FC Barcelona emerged out of the said event having overcome a major objective: Registering Pablo Gavira as a first-team member. Now donning the legendary number 6, the youngster leaves behind the famed number 30 vacant as he now belongs to the first team’s officiality.

However, not everyone involved has been a happy customer. La Liga president Javier Tebas is among those that were not in favor of FC Barcelona being able to register Gavi. The league’s own financial rulings estimated that Barcelona currently should not be allowed to integrate Gavi officially into the first team on the basis of future economic repercussions and Barcelona’s potential inability to cope with them.

Despite this major setback, it is thanks to a ruling by the 10th Commercial Court of Barcelona that has ruled in favor of the Catalan club that La Liga is now forced to comply and accept Gavi’s registration.

A day later, a quote from Javier Tebas makes it quite apparent that the Spanish league’s president definitely bears some contempt:

This is not the first time FC Barcelona and Javier Tebas have locked horns over registration issues, from Lionel Messi’s when he was just a youngling to recent times such as last summer’s signings being registered. It also doesn’t help that Tebas has previously publicly mentioned that he has always been a Madridista, something Barcelona fans to this day credit his prejudice towards.
