January 29 News Barcelona Director Alemani said in an interview this week,
Barcelona will still work hard to complete the registration of Garvey and Araujo.
“Garvey and Araujo have been unregistered for some time now and there are still some technical issues. The important thing is that Garvey and Araujo are two players who are protected by a €1 billion buyout clause and that they have
New contracts for 3 seasons. We are going to register them, but I don’t know when. They are Barça players. We will solve the registration issue, but it is a matter of official regulations.”
La Liga currently does not allow Barcelona to register for Garvey, because Barcelona cannot meet the requirements of La Liga in terms of economics.
Failure to register Garvey would mean the player’s contract expires next summer, not 2026.
Araujo’s situation is similar. If La Liga does not allow players to register, the only solution is for Barcelona to increase revenue, sell players, and reduce total salary, and these aspects make Barcelona feel tricky.
