In March, Barcelona president Joan Laporta all but confirmed that both players had signed a deal.

He told RAC1: “We’ve completed two signings for the next season.

“One is a midfielder, the other one is a centre-back.

“But I’m not allowed to mention their names.”

Rumours were further fuelled when it was revealed that Christensen was house hunting in Spain.

However, the move has now ground to a halt due to Financial Fair Play.

According to transfer guru Fabrizio Romano, both deals are already agreed and completed.

But, the FFP rules are preventing registration.

In spite of the issue, Barcelona have offered a guarantee to both players suggesting that the move will still go ahead.

The Catalan giants are also eager to sign Robert Lewandowski from Bayern Munich.

The striker has made it clear that he favours a move to Camp Nou, however, the club’s financial issues are stopping a deal from being struck.

Barcelona have been told that they need to generate more money by offloading players before bringing anyone else in.
