A judge rules in Barcelona's favour, forcing LaLiga to register Gavi
The Catalan club were fighting LaLiga's decision not to let them register the midfielder
The 10th Commercial Court of Barcelona has forced LaLiga to accept Gavi's registration as a Barcelona first-team player. The court has ruled in favour of Barça, who had appealed in the face of the repeated refusal of the league presided over by Javier Tebas to accept the processing of Gavi's registration and his new contract as a first-team player, according to 'La Vanguardia'.
Until now, Tebas has blocked the registration of the new contracts of players such as Gavi and Araujo, as well as warning that he will not accept the renewals of other players such as Balde or Iñaki Peña, on the grounds that Barça exceed the economic Fair Play.
Now, LaLiga can lodge an appeal to prevent Barça from registering the new contract of a player who already signed his new deal and with Barça last September. The player signed a contract that binds him to Barça until June 2026 and with a clause of €1 billion.
It remains to be seen whether LaLiga will now lodge an appeal or whether they will allow Gavi to become a first-team player for Barcelona. The Andalusian, at the moment, has a youth team registration.
The High Court of Justice of Catalonia has confirmed the latest developments in a tweet.
