Why LaLiga could block Messi from playing for Barcelona until January

NEWSCASTARS.COM have gathered that Barcelona may be unable to register Lionel Messi for play in LaLiga until January 2022, ESPN reports.

The Catalans are looking for ways to reduce their wage bill, to align with LaLiga’s financial fair play rules or risk not being able to register Messi’s new contract or new arrivals, Memphis Depay, Sergio Aguero, Eric Garcia and Emerson Royal.

Barca have until the end of the transfer window on August 31 to submit Messi’s deal and their new signings to LaLiga

The League president, Javier Tebas, has insisted that he will not relax the rules for Barcelona whose failure to get their finances in order could see Messi, if he signs the five-year deal he has already agreed, unable to play until at least January, as happened with Getafe midfielder, Pedro Leon in 2014.
