barcelona-will-be-able-to-register-every-player-thanks-to-fourth-economic-lever-and-one-salary-reduction

Barcelona will be able to register all of their players, including their five summer signings if they sign a fourth economic lever and Gerard Pique agrees to a pay cut.

The Catalan giants have been active in the transfer window despite growing financial issues and have added Franck Kessie, Andreas Christensen, Raphinha, Robert Lewandowski and Jules Kounde to their squad.

Gerard Romero claims a fourth economic lever and club legend Pique reducing his salary will allow them to register the five new signings.

Reports in Spain alleged Pique was still earning close to half a million pounds a year, which was proven to not be true.

Barcelona have activated three economic levers so far, with the third seeing them sell 25 per cent of Barca Studios commercial arm to Socios.com for €100 million last Monday.

A fourth lever could see them sell up to 49 per cent of Barca Studios according to The Athletic.

The club have also sold 25 per cent of their La Liga TV rights to US firm Six Street for the next 25 years.

Barcelona are reportedly pressuring a number of players to leave and among the high-profile names are Frenkie de Jong.

The Netherlands international is wanted by Manchester United and Chelsea, but he’d rather stay at the Camp Nou.

Martin Braithwaite is also demanding to be fully compensated for the final two years of his contract before departing.

The Blaugrana still intend to add more players this summer too.
