Marcos Alonso registered in La Liga – why Inigo Matinez and Pena are still left out

Barcelona have registered Marcos Alonso in La Liga ahead of their game against Villarreal on Sunday.

After Ter Stegen signed a new contract with a pay cut, Barca had the space in FFP to register at least one more player.

It was initially believed that Inaki Pena would be the player to be registered. But Xavi instructed Barca to register Alonso instead.

The narrative was that the injury scare to Alejandro Balde necessitated that a natural left-back be added to the squad as backup.

Pena was ignored as Barca had La Masia goalkeepers like Ander Astralaga and Diego Kochen to cover for Ter Stegen.

As for Inigo Martinez, the 32-year-old is still recovering from injury and can afford to wait a little longer to join the squad.
