Barcelona boss Ronald Koeman is currently banned from making a move for Georginio Wijnaldum - because of La Liga rules.

The former Netherlands boss has arrived at the Nou Camp with a very clear idea of what players he wants to bring in.

And he has also not been afraid on kicking players out after telling the likes of Luis Suarez and Riqui Puig to leave.

Koeman has been eyeing some players from the national side he coached not long ago.

The two that are on his wish list are Memphis Depay and Wijnaldum.

The former is being touted to replace Suarez up front to form a fluid attack with Antoine Griezmann and Lionel Messi.

Whereas Wijnaldum is wanted to bring some balance and control into Barcelona's midfield, which was badly exposed by Bayern Munich in the Champions League.

However, Koeman will not be able to sign the Liverpool star - or anyone for that matter - because of some binding rules from La Liga.

The league have stepped in to block any incoming deals at Barcelona because of their dire financial state, report the Mirror.

The Covid-19 pandemic has hit Spain hard, with football taking a huge punch as a result of the lack of revenue.

Barca were already in a rut, with huge transfers for the likes of Frenkie de Jong, Philippe Coutinho, Ousmane Dembele and Griezmann setting them back.

Clubs in Spain are under strict guidelines as a result of the coronavirus crisis.

Barcelona are operating on a £510m-a-year wage bill which has been classified unsustainable.

It means they must sell players before they will be allowed to bring anymore in, meaning any move for Wijnaldum is off.

But a program in place means that any transfer fee must be paid in double, with the other half going to the government to help out smaller clubs.

La Liga has outlined to top-tier clubs how much they can spend on transfers, dependant on their finances over the past five years.
