La Liga tell Barcelona they must sell Frenkie de Jong and more Manchester United transfer rumours

It is claimed that Barcelona's wage bill and debts are still too high for La Liga to allow them to register Robert Lewandowski, Jules Kounde, Franck Kessie, Andreas Christensen and Raphinha, as well as Ousmane Dembele and Sergi Roberto, who re-signed with Barcelona this summer after their previous contracts with the club expired.

It is reported that Barca chief Joan Laporta was hopeful the recent sale of a percentage of the club's TV rights would ease their financial problems enough for them to be able to register their new players in time for the new La Liga season. According to Spanish outlet Sport, though, Barcelona have been told they must still sell players to ease their problems, with De Jong the most valuable player who could leave, and the wheels could be put in motion from next week.
