Josep Maria Bartomeu spoke about Barcelona’s transfer outlook this week. The Barcelona president spoke candidly about the chances that the club make moves for Lautaro Martinez and Neymar. A situation that a few months seemed to be inevitable, signing one of the two, now seems far off.
Bartomeu on signing Neymar: “A move like that is unlikely because the situation of all the European clubs is very difficult.”
He then answered. a question about signing Lautaro Martinez this offseason.
“We’ll talk about the signings when the season is over. Barca do not have a calendar to do the deals by. It will be very difficult for there to be important transfers.”

It’s perhaps also worth noting that Martinez’s €111m release clause reportedly expires today.
