so all the players will be ready for Saturday's kickoff vs Rayo ? so when are they selling Miralem Pjanić

I don't know when, but they will. Already Pique and Busi have accepted further salary cuts and a 4th lever has been activated.

And there are departures still pending...
How do you see the de Jong saga playing out from the following options?

1. He Stays: but refuses to half his salary AND reduce his deferred receivable to €6M ... Barca will be financially strapped even after pulling the 4th lever and will prevent them from registering all players... will Barca press criminal charges or is it a bluff?
2. He Stays: and gives into Barca's wage cut and deferred receivables reduction ... Best scenario for Barca which guarantees they register all players and hold onto FDJ.
3. He agrees to leave: Barca earns transfer revenue AND clears his wages AND deferred salary liability from their books ... best deal for Barca financially but they miss out on the services of a quality midfielder.

These EPL fans and pundits I am starting to think are jealous of Barca...

They will register those players; a similar thing played out last season...
Sorry but this post is irrelevant and bias laced for many reasons. Let's concentrate on the facts surrounding Barca's struggles financially.

Barca may need to pull a 5th financial lever after today’s goal less draw.

From a purely football perspective , the moment Pedri and Gavi emerged he was surplus to requirements.
Now the financial situation has muddled the issue badly.

Barca needs to pay him his deferred wages. You cannot have it both ways.

In the Barca structure under Xavi, quality MF or not, he doesn’t fit in.

We watched this very boring video, 500 times, of Sacchi doing defensive drills, using sticks and without the ball, with Maldini, Baresi and Albertini. We used to think before then that if the other players are better, you have to lose. After that we learned anything is possible – you can beat better teams by using tactics." Jurgen Klopp

There’s no getting around the fact that Barca was badly mismanaged and are cash strapped.

But my point is that the EPL pundits are crying louder than the owners of the corpse.

If the EPL had a hard salary cap like La Liga many teams in England would struggle.
