Barcelona new signings to leave for free

Barcelona new signings to leave for free


Barcelona’s new arrivals Andreas Christensen and Franck Kessie could both leave the club for free if they are not registered before Barcelona’s opening La Liga game on Saturday.

Christensen and Kessie joined Barcelona this summer from Chelsea and Inter Milan respectively, but are yet to be registered by the club due to their ongoing financial issues.

ESPN claimed that the pair could both leave Barcelona for free if they are not registered before Barcelona match with Rayo Vallecano on Saturday.

The Blaugrana are also yet to register fellow summer signings Robert Lewandowski, Raphinha and Jules Kounde, while the contract renewals signed by Ousmane Dembele and Sergio Roberto have not been recorded either.

Christensen and Kessie moved to the Camp Nou on free transfers – a clause in their contracts will allow them to depart for free.

Barcelona have spent over £100million on signing new players this summer, yet it is believed that they are not done there. The Catalan outfit have also been linked with a swoop for Chelsea defender Marcos Alonso ahead of the window shutting.

The club faced a similar problem following the signing of Ferran Torres in January, which led to some financial moves being made to register the forward.

ESPN noted that Barcelona president Joan Laporta is confident that all seven players will be registered ahead of the tie with Vallecano this weekend.
