Barcelona secured a victory in court on Tuesday, allowing the club to finally register Gavi as a first team player. Gavi now wears the iconic number six jersey, previously owned by manager Xavi Hernandez. He debuts it in Wednesday’s match against Real Betis.
However, La Liga is not giving up without a fight. The league’s president, Javier Tebas, announced their intention to appeal the court’s decision. La Liga plans to use their laws to argue against Gavi’s registration, but they have faced accusations of altering their rules.
“CuleDeChamberi” posted two versions of La Liga’s rules on Twitter, showcasing an alteration that occurred after Barcelona signed Gavi to a new contract in September. The original rule allowed a renewal to be registered in the salary cap if the player signed the deal before the winter transfer window, but La Liga altered it to cover the entire season in November.
.@LaLiga miente y manipula. Dicen que lo que impide inscribir a Gavi es una norma que ya existía, pero el problema es que no existía tal y como está redactada ahora.
Se ha modificado y extendido a medida para impedir la inscripción de Gavi.
Aquí os dejo la actual y anterior. pic.twitter.com/eaqQUOv9MU
