La Liga has opposed Barcelona’s registration of talented 18-year-old midfielder, Gavi, as a senior player. The division claimed that the club has not fulfilled the necessary financial obligations, putting a halt on their efforts to register players to their senior team due to being over their agreed squad budget for the 2022-2023 season.
Despite La Liga’s objections, a Spanish court has ruled in favor of Barcelona, requiring the division to allow Gavi’s new senior contract to take effect and to permit him to wear the famous No.6 jersey, previously worn by club legend Xavi. Despite the court’s decision, La Liga plans to appeal, stating they have sufficient factual and legal grounds that they believe will result in the removal of the provisional measure.
The financial struggles of Barcelona, widely reported, serve as a reminder through the ongoing situation. Despite their current lead in the La Liga table, with a five-point advantage over Real Madrid, the club’s recent elimination from the Champions League group stage has only added to their financial difficulties.
For the time being, Gavi will be able to wear the No.6 jersey in domestic matches, including the upcoming match against Real Betis on Wednesday, until La Liga’s appeal has been processed. The young midfielder has been making waves in the league and has caught the attention of many with his impressive performances. Fans eagerly await seeing Gavi play in the new jersey, previously worn by his now manager Xavi.
Stay tuned for further updates on La Liga’s appeal and the future of Barcelona’s efforts to register Gavi as a senior player.
