Barcelona are apparently unable to complete the acquisitions of Andreas Christensen and Franck Kessie due to financial constraints.
It has been widely reported for some weeks that the Chelsea defender and AC Milan midfielder have agreed to join Camp Nou on free transfers.
Due to their well-documented financial problems, the Catalan giants have been forced to consider that form of transfer, with club officials presently looking to dispose of a number of marginal players.
However, that has yet to happen, and Sport claims that it is now affecting their efforts to comply with La Liga laws.
According to the article, Barca are now unable to register Christensen or Kessie, emphasizing the enormity of the work before of the powers-that-be.
While some team members will certainly go in the coming months, Barcelona wants to add many more players, and Xavi's efforts to enhance his squad might be hampered by the delayed movement of exiting players.
