Barcelona is struggling financially it’s been rumored that La Liga may not give the green light to register Barca's recruits due to spending limits. However, Joan Laporta is confident Barcelona will be able to register their summer signings.

Barcelona officially presented

Robert Lewandowski

as a Barca player at Camp Nou on Friday following his controversial € 50m transfer from Bayern Munich, The Catalan giants have also paid large fees to sign Raphinha and Jules Kounde, while Franck Kessie and Andreas Christensen arrived as free agents.

Laporta

said to Lewandowski’s presentation media conference: "

We have worked to be able to register all the players that we have incorporated.

"We have worked hard and well to meet the requirements that are needed for the registrations. If any further operation is needed, we will do it, but the documentation has been presented. It's a decision that LaLiga must make. We have complied with everything they require and we are confident that they will be able to sign up."

 

After signing up to a hugely lucrative sponsorship deal with Spotify and selling a percentage of LaLiga broadcast rights, merchandising rights, and a stake in Barca Studios, the

Barcelona

president is confident they will be able to adjust to La Liga’s spending limits and register their new signings.

He added:

"The second sale of Barca Studios was approved because we had foreseen it. As a precaution and in anticipation of divergence in some interpretations, we have done it. To have the foresight.

"We had already planned to do the fourth level, if it also serves to consolidate registrations better. Barca has entered these two months and operations worth 868million euros. We have positive funds, a healthy balance sheet and results also because we have made profits.

"We have made a great effort, we have had to carry out operations to sell some assets, always in a controlled manner."

 

Laporta revealed Lewandowski's passion to join Barcelona as he had to assure

the Polish star

that his move to Barcelona would not collapse.

"

When an agreement was reached with Bayern, we had a series of talks,

" he said.

"Robert and his agent were concerned about whether we could register him, but I gave them comfort and told them that if we had to register one Robert would be the first. There were other clubs that offered more money and more salary to the player."

Lewandowski has taken the number nine shirt that

Memphis Depay

wore last year while Laporta does not feel his club has been disrespectful to the former Manchester United forward. He said:

"The number nine thing was a club decision. For reasons that interest the club, for image and publicity reasons. We have considered an appropriate decision and we have made it with all respect for Memphis."
