Barcelona president Joan Laporta has made a special request to LaLiga as the club looks to re-sign superstar Lionel Messi.
The Catalan giants are said to be over their salary cap heading into the new season, and are unable to register their four signings and re-sign Messi until it's lowered.
The club has already offloaded seven players ahead of the new season, but are said to be looking to get rid of a few more before the deadline, which is in four weeks.
Laporta has now asked the league for a bit more flexibility as they look to get their affairs in order.
"We'd like more flexibility from La Liga if possible, like other leagues across the continent have done for teams," the club president said, as per Marca.
"Then, we could sign some more players.
"As for Messi, it's going well. We're trying to resolve the issues that need to be resolved.
"They're important, but we're getting on with this."
A number of reports in Spain suggest that the six-time Ballon d'Or winner has already agreed to extend his stay with the Catalan outfit, in a deal that he will see him remain at the club until 2026.
