Barcelona signings Andreas Christensen and Franck Kessie could both leave the club for free if they are not registered before Barca’s La Liga opener on Saturday.

Christensen and Kessie joined the Blaugrana in the summer from Chelsea and Milan respectively but have yet to be registered by the club due to their ongoing financial problems.

And ESPN have claimed the pair could both leave Barcelona for free if they are not registered ahead of Barca’s clash with Rayo Vallecano on Saturday.

The Blaugrana are yet to register fellow summer signings Robert Lewandowski, Raphinha and Jules Kounde, while contract renewals signed by Ousmane Dembele and Sergio Roberto haven’t been registered either.

However, due to Christensen and Kessie moving to Camp Nou on free transfers – a clause in their contracts will allow them to leave for free.

Barca spent over £100m on signings this summer but it’s believed they aren’t over there. The Catalan side have also been linked with a swoop for Chelsea defender Marcos Alonso before the window closed.

The club faced a similar problem after signing Ferran Torres in January, which led to a number of financial moves to register the striker.

Still, ESPN noted that Barcelona president Joan Laporta is confident all seven players will be signed up ahead of the draw with Vallecano.

If they are unable to do so, they will endeavor to resolve the issue with the players’ agents, as they have until the end of August to list players from Spain’s top flight.

Barca kicked off their La Liga campaign against Rayo Vallecano at the Camp Nou on Saturday but it remains to be seen whether the respective seven players are signed up in time for the game.
