Barcelona could lose their new signings for free this summer if the club is unable to register Andreas Christensen and Franck Kessie ahead of their La Liga curtain-raiser on Saturday against Rayo Vallecano.

Andreas Christensen and Franck Kessie arrived at Barcelona this summer following a free transfer from Chelsea and AC Milan and they are yet to be registered by the club for the new season.

Sources have told ESPN that if they are not registered before Barca’s opening fixture against Rayo, both players could choose to execute a clause that allows them to leave for free.

Other new signings such as Robert Lewandowski, Raphinha and Jules Kounde are also facing similar issues and the recent renewals of Sergi Roberto and Ousmane Dembele are yet to be registered.

Christensen and Kessie could leave for free if they decided to because they joined on a free transfer but Barcelona president Joan Laporta is working tirelessly to prevent the ugly situation from happening.

Barcelona has considered other sources and the Camp Nou team has €600m by selling 25% of their domestic television rights for 25 years and a 24.5% stake in Barcelona Studios.

Barcelona is willing to sell more of such rights at least a 24.5% stake in Barcelona Studios and continue to negotiate wage adjustments with other players and other sources include, including the sales of club assets, and funds from sponsorship deals signed with Spotify.

Barcelona will take on Rayo Vallecano on Saturday at Camp Nou for match day one.
