ESPN reported that Christensen and Kessie's situations are different, though, because they were free agents. They have a clause in their contracts that allows them to leave before the transfer window closes.

With three days to go before the new season starts, Barcelona are cutting it close when it comes to registering their new signings.

As reported by Football Espana, club captain Sergio Busquets is willing to defer his salary to help the club, provided he gets a guarantee that he will receive his full salary when he leaves the club.

Gerard Piqué has already agreed to renegotiate his contract, taking a salary cut in the process, in order to help the team register their new players.
