    They were Castilla signings, not first team.

    When we register Ez Abde in the summer, does his transfer fee from last year shift as a first team signing or has it already been accounted as Barca B signing outside the LaLiga piramid without salary cap attributed to it?

    Wait, Camavinga was signed for Castilla? He never had a B number though. Always had 25.

    So he was signed for Castilla on Aug 31, and then on the same day promoted to A for "free"?

    Not sure with whom Barca could've done this. Ferran, Trincao, Pedri?

    Would be suspicious to register Ferran as a B teamer after arriving from City and Pedri's cost was pretty low anyway.

    The official line was they made him a B signing to fit in Mbappe as their first team squad was full.

    I don't know how it was accounted though as it is much more dubious than the rest given time differences.

    Perhaps this was the move that sparked the circular change?

    But look at Vini and Rodrygo and they spent 6-12m in the B. It's same as EZ Abde, only differance the fees involved. But legality wise- no differance.

    Then look at Reinier. Never registered as a Real Madrid signing so why would he be counted as one? He is a youth signing bet, only differance being the fee involved.

    It's no different than a B signing for ourselves who never made the first team. Their fee would not be accounted in the first team salary cap dynamics.

    Real would not be avoiding costs on players through doing that.

    Otherwise teams would just register young players for big money in B team and next day promote them or just keep them in B team.

    If that is the claim then it is Real who have been benefitting far more than Barca and this is infact a 'anti Real Law' not Barca.

    Laporta needs to watch his comments again though... he was clearly trying to make out league is anti Barca as part of boards argument for the new levers.

    But for any young player they are trying to keep and the system in Spain seen as one of best for moving on to first team.. they and their agents will hear the message of that becoming more difficult.

    As ever he needs to reign it in a bit and not talk too much when trying to have one objective but can in turn be a negative also.

    Non EU spots and numbers of players available for first team and young players not being left without games if not ready. Plenty reasons to register those players in B team.

    If there was a loophole to avoid costs of players to extent of saving 100m in relation to Spanish FFP clubs would have been at it for years.
