The club have to get players out before they can register new arrivals
Ferran Torres will be a Barcelona player soon. Negotiations with Man City are virtually complete and the transfer can be made official soon. However Barcelona have to work on their exits to register the Valencia forward.
At Camp Nou they have to get players out. If they can do that then it’s likely he will be back from injury and able to play by January 19.
Dani Alves can be registered because his salary is so low and the money saved from the Sergio Aguero retirement can help.
