FC Barcelona Register New Signings in Time for First League Match Against La Real

Recall that Memphis, Eric Garcia and Rey Manaj were yet to be registered with La Liga by Barca due to financial constraints until yesterday. However, all three players can be seen as registered Barca players when you peruse through the list of registrants in La Liga official site.

The Catalans took to their Twitter page to make the announcement after Gerard Pique agreed to reduce his salary to accommodate the new players.

Earlier last week, Emerson Royal was also registered. His registration was a lot easier because FC Barcelona already own half of his rights when they signed him from Brazil before his loan spell at Real Betis.

This means that all four players will be available for selection against Real Soceidad in Barca’s league opening match at the Camp Nou today.

Memphis Depay and Rey Manaj were exceptional during the preseason matches. The 24yrs old Albanian, Rey Manaj notched up four (4) goals while Depay scored scored three (goals) himself to round up a wonderful integration into his new team.

It’s expected that the Netherland International will start in the match against La Real to lead the forward line alongside Griezmann.

Eric Garcia is not expected to be in the line up today as he is currently enjoying a well deserved rest after his outing at the Olympics with Spanish men football team.
