Why some of Barcelona's new arrivals might not play in the Europa League

While Barcelona has undoubtedly improved the quality level in its Squadron in January, this has created a new problem for the Bluegranana, because UEFA rules mean that you can add only three new players to your squad for the Europa League.

UEFA only allow three mid-season additions

As soon as the winter transfer market is closed, the clubs have been until 2 February to send their UEFA update troops, but only three new players can be recorded. Based on the round playoffs of the knockout, a Club can register a maximum of three new legitimate actors for the remaining parties in the current competition, so UEFA explains the rule.

Barcelona has already sealed the signature of Dani Alves, Ferran Torres and Adama Traore, but continues to work on other possible acquisitions, such as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang or Nicolas Taglifico. If another player arrives, at least one of January's arrivals during the remaining months of the season can not be presented in continental competition, creating a headache for Xavi.

Xavi already knows that neither Abde Ezzalzouli nor Ferran Jutgla can play this season in the La Europa League. Although both have regularly started for the first team, there is little enough in the Barcelona

Academy to be considered as a home player. As such, you need to take one of the three slots mentioned above, and that is not possible because many players have already been signed.
