Despite not meeting the economic requirements, Barcelona had filed a court case in late January in order to register Gavi as part of the first team. The court ruling came in their favour and La Liga was forced to register the player, who was handed the iconic number six jersey.
Gavi had signed a contract extension with Barcelona back in September 2022. This resulted in Gavi playing with the number 30 shirt throughout the course of the campaign.
But while Barcelona were able to register the player in late January, La Liga threatened to appeal against the registration, citing a violation of the Financial Fair Play regulations.
It appears the Spanish footballing authority has now been successful, as the Mercantile Court of Barcelona has now lifted the precautionary measures that had allowed the club to register Gavi, reports Sergio Fernandez.
Instead of going into the minute details, the court has raised a very simple formality behind the reason for the ruling. It is that Barcelona had filed the case a day later.
