Barca Risk Missing Out On Two Transfer Targets

New reports suggest that FC Barcelona may have to delay making their move for two of their top transfer targets.

Much of the latest transfer window was dominated by talk regarding Lionel Messi's future at the Catalan club, and although there was an intention for a major overhaul, the Blaugrana are struggling to avoid a financial crisis.

It has already been reported that Messi could be offloaded for free at the end of the season, which would have a significant impact on their wage bill.

However, in the latest transfer window, Barca were heavily linked with Olympique Lyon striker Memphis Depay and Manchester City defender Eric Garcia, and while Ronald Koeman has publicly spoken about his desire to sign the duo, Marca has now reported that a move for the two players in January would be highly unlikely.

This is mainly due to the upcoming elections at the Spanish club following Josep Maria Bartomeu's resignation. Any new president would also need to ratify any transfers, which means that negotiations for new players would be affected.

This could also put Barca in danger of missing out on the two abovementioned stars as they are both free agents at the end of the current campaign, so would be able to sign a pre-contract with a foreign club in January.
