In fact, FC Barcelona is already suffering this situation with Martin Braithwaite who was operated on October 16 of his knee problems and will miss practically the rest of the season.
In both cases, for the Dane and the Argentine, the club will have to wait until January 1, 2020 when the winter transfer window is scheduled to start in order to try to sign a player from any other team.
That will be when they will not only be able to sign a player but also, in the case of European competitions, could withdraw their chip for the second leg. That would mean that both the Dane and the Argentine would never be able to participate in the direct play-offs in the Old Continent.
That is why in the chapter of high, and waiting for Messi to confirm his continuity (a different answer would open a completely different scenario), the club has the idea of announcing the signing at zero cost of Eric Garcia once Manchester City has played the Champions League final on May 29 in Porto against Chelsea, as already reported Tuesday MD, which revealed a month ago the idea of going for another center back, in this case left-handed.
MD already advanced yesterday that Barça has given the go-ahead to the arrival of the Argentine, who, like the Dutchman, is crazy about joining the Camp Nou with a substantial reduction in the tab he receives in the Premier League. Barça wants experienced players like them to guarantee an immediate return and hopes on the other hand that the youngsters who have appeared this season will establish themselves in the future.

Ousmane Dembélé’s renewal is getting closer and closer. Contacts between Barça and his agents are happening on a regular basis and at Camp Nou are very optimistic about reaching an agreement this November. The blockade of previous weeks has given way to much more fluid conversations that could lead to a close agreement.
The doubts are dissipating and his representative has finally given in to the player’s will to stay. The offers from the Premier League, including Manchester United and Chelsea, guaranteeing more money and a greater role than the Camp Nou, were weighty arguments that made the operation shaky.
The position of the French striker, who played a great game against Dynamo in Kiev, has been, however, decisive in turning his continuity around. The player has communicated that his priority is to continue and has asked to reach an agreement that satisfies both parties. From offices point out to MD that it has entered the final stretch and that the OK could come this same month of November. In any case, the experience with Ilaix Moriba makes everyone be cautious.
In parallel to the firm commitment to young players, FC Barcelona is still working to bring in a more physical and powerful midfielder for its midfield. Laporta has in mind the Touré Yaya and Seydou Keita of his first stage, two players who without having Barça DNA were almost indispensable for Pep Guardiola for their physical wear and tear and their work for the sake of the team.
However, as with Pogba -who is wanted by Juve, PSG and United, who are not giving up on renewing him- or Kessié -wanted by PSG, Liverpool and United-, Zakaria also has other teams interested. His name has been linked with Roma, Milan -who are thinking of him to replace Kessié-, Atlético de Madrid and Sevilla.
