Barcelona president Joan Laporta has interrupted his holiday due to emergency talks at the Camp Nou. Barca have still not been able to sign their new signings for La Liga. For this, the Spanish top club must first have its financial household in order. A fourth financial injection was supposed to offer a solution, but according to Mundo Deportivo this operation is being delayed by legal and administrative problems.

The Catalan newspaper writes that Barcelona at this stage doubts whether it can finalize the deal before the first league game of the season. Barça will receive Rayo Vallecano at home on Saturday evening at 9 p.m. The club is now looking at other options to be able to register at least a few acquisitions. Barcelona is very concerned about the fourth financial injection. What seemed a foregone conclusion a few days ago and was about to be signed is now bogged down in legal and administrative difficulties.

With a possible sale of another 24.5 percent of production company Barça Studios, Barcelona can reportedly add 100 million euros. Concern within the board is so great that Laporta cut off his holiday on the Costa Brava on Thursday to meet Vice-President Rafael Yuste Technical Director Mateu Alemany and Treasurer Ferran Olivé at the Camp Nou.

One of the scenarios Barça is considering is to request special permission from LaLiga, informing them in advance about the status of the negotiations to sell the shares of Barça Studios. The last resort to be able to enroll at least some of the newly enlisted players seems to be cutting some players’ salaries. According to Cadena COPE Sergio Busquets and Gerard Pique have already indicated that they are willing to make a salary sacrifice.
