Reports state that La Liga has rejected the new contract registration of Marcos Alonso at Barcelona, as it will take the club over their salary lap. It was said that Marcos Alonso signed a new contract with Barcelona on Friday and tied his knot with the Catalan giants until 2024. However, at present, sources are verifying that La Liga has been holding the 32-year-old footballer’s contract considering the Financial Fair Play regulations.
Alonso has been playing at Los Blaugrana since last summer, when he signed a one-year deal with the club at reduced wages, considering Barcelona’s financial problems at that time. However, Barca promised Marcos Alonso to offer him a bumper contract on higher wages that can retain him in the club.
As time went by, the former contract Alonsos ended at Barcelona, and the Catalan giants offered the Spaniard a new one, which was signed on Friday. The defender agreed to the deal and signed the contract with the club to stay there for at least one more year.
Marcos Alonso’s registration at Barcelona gets rejected
Barcelona manager Xavi Hernandez in this regard said that the news is true. He said that they are happy to extend the contract of Marcos Alonso and stated him as a great player. At a press conference, Xavi said that this was primarily a subject discussed with Mateu Alemany and Jordi Cruyff along with the club. They are very clear about it, and it has been executed as well.
Xavi added more in this regard, and he is very happy about this renewal. Marcos Alonsos is a very reliable footballer, has been a great player and has been doing great for Barca at present, as well as will do in the future.
However, despite all these, the governing authority of Spanish footballers has rejected the registration of the footballer at Barca, considering the club’s salary limit. Though the exact reason for the same is yet to be determined but is a fact that the Financial Fair Play regulations have prevented the Catalan Giants from signing more players from the transfer window.
