Barcelona registers Christensen the day before the season opener


Nothing stands in the way of Andreas Christensen making his debut as an FC Barcelona player on Saturday.

On Friday, the Dane and several of Barcelona’s other new signings from this summer were registered in La Liga so that they can play.

This appears from La Liga’s website.

Andreas Christensen has been registered together with Robert Lewandowski, Raphinha and Franck Kessie. All four can therefore get on the field when Barcelona play their first game of the season on Saturday against Rayo Vallecano.

The Barcelona quartet all joined the club earlier this summer, but due to Barcelona’s financial difficulties, they have not been able to register them in La Liga’s system until now.

The club has been forced to sell 49 percent of the media company Barca Studios, which is responsible for the club’s social media and TV channel, Barca TV.

In addition, it has sold 25 percent of the club’s television rights in the domestic La Liga for the next 25 years to Sixth Street, a global investment firm. Here, the club can potentially miss out on large sums of millions, as the value of these in the future is difficult to predict.

Finally, they have tried to get the next five years of TV money from the Champions League in advance. However, the European Football Association (Uefa) has rejected this.

La Liga has a number of financial requirements that must be met by the clubs. This explains these financial maneuvers, which have now helped the club to register their new purchases towards the start of the season.
