Despite rumours of Barcelona’s interest in some of the best players in Europe, the club will not make any signings in the January transfer window.
Memphis Depay’s departure was the only movement at the club. The Dutchman completed the move to league rivals Atletico Madrid.
Why is Barcelona not making any signings in the January transfer window?
At the club, the feeling is to work with the present players. But Xavi Hernandez has the desire to bring reinforcement to the team as he believes it would help the club finish strong at the end of the season.
According to Marca (h/t) Fichajes, Barcelona top hierarchy will not make changes to the team despite Xavi Hernandez’s request for players like Yannick Ferreira Carrasco and Gonçalo Guedes following the departure of Memphis Depay.
The reason for this decision was the Financial Fair Play which does not allow the club to make changes to the team at this time of the season.
