BARCELONA – Barcelona will be in a position to go to the transfer market during the January window, assured the club’s general director, Ferran Reverter, who was “sure” that the club “will obviously be able to sign. It can do so in winter and You can also do it in summer ”.
Barça, as President Joan Laporta warned a few weeks ago, is studying reinforcing the squad with one or two footballers during the month of January, although for this it understands it necessary to lower the wage bill with the departure of some players who do not enter the Xavi Hernández’s plans, something that, according to what Reverter explained, is being worked on at the Camp Nou.
“Barça, now, must take a good look at the signings, how they do them,” explained the manager, who was also optimistic about Ousmane Dembélé’s continuity beyond the end of the season. “Of course we can renew him. But Once again, it may take us a little longer, because as the club’s situation is, we look at everything in great detail “.
The general director of Barcelona, who presented the guidelines of the referendum to be held on December 19 to approve the financing of the Espai Barça works, with the Camp Nou as the highest priority, revealed that the cost of the same, a maximum of 1,500 million euros will be financed with the income obtained from the structural improvements of the stadium and annexed pavilions, so they will “not influence” the sports investments, transfers, that must be carried out in the coming years.
In fact, in this aspect he was once again forceful by ensuring that at the club “we are always open to market operations, both for registrations and cancellations, and when the market opens, Barça will always be there”, avoiding referring to to proper names, such as when he was asked about Ferran Torres and the trip he made to Manchester last week in the company of football director Mateu Alemany, but confirming the willingness of the club to study the option of reinforcing Xavi Hernández’s squad.
