Robert Lewandowski is not allowed to play for FC Barcelona

Dhe waiting for world footballer Robert Lewandowski and other expensive newcomers at FC Barcelona to play is becoming more and more of a nail-biter. Even one day before the heavily indebted club’s first league game of the new season on Saturday evening, it is unclear whether the former Bayern striker, as well as Jules Kounde, Raphinha, Andreas Christensen and Franck Kessie, can be used at all. The same was true for Ousmane Dembélé and Sergi Roberto, whose contracts have been renewed.

Despite selling some of their silverware, Barça have so far failed to meet the league’s financial fair play rules. To do this, the debt would have to be reduced or the salary scale reduced.

In the case of Dutch national player Frenkie de Jong, both sides are therefore fighting a mud fight. Barça are unhappy with his performance and want to sell him for as much money as possible or cut his salary. The midfielder has so far rejected both. He has already fallen out of favor with some fans. They accuse him of disloyal behavior and sometimes accost de Jong on the street.

The Barça management was recently “very worried” about a delay in the sale of another part of the club’s assets, the specialist newspaper “Mundo Deportivo” wrote on Friday. A few days ago everything seemed to be clear, 25 percent of Barça Studios should take over the company GDA Luma for 100 million euros.

But legal and administrative issues delayed the action. On Friday, the club finally confirmed the sale of a further 24.5 percent of the in-house content forge for audiovisual projects for 100 million euros, but to Orpheus Media. It was initially unclear whether it was enough for registration.
