Bartomeu: "The squad is complete”
FC Barcelona will not be buying or selling any more players this summer after the club’s Sporting Vice President Josep Maria Bartomeu stated that the squad was complete.
During the press conference to present Javier Mascherano as a new Barça player Bartomeu,
accompanied by Sporting Director of Professional Football Andoni Zubizarreta, said: “The
squad is now complete and we will not sign anyone else. We have reached the decision that there is
no need to strengthen the team any further.”
Zubizarreta did add that should an incredible present itself then Barça may have to listen,
however. “We are watching,” he said.
Bartomeu and Zubizarreta will hold a press conference on Wednesday to talk about
the activity within the football area of the club over the past two months.
The media briefing will take place in the press room within Camp Nou at 13:00
