Barcelona may not be allowed to attract a new striker after Usman Dembele’s operation, warns Catalan sports magazine Sport.
The club has already sent the documents to the medical committee after the Frenchman underwent surgery earlier this week in Finland.
Barca say it will have to recover in about 6 months, but according to the rulebook, it is nowhere written that this period should be accepted as safe by doctors.
The problem comes from the fact that in other cases with such injuries, the recovery took about 3 months. Dembele himself underwent surgery in 2017, but on the other leg after a similar problem, he was missing for 3 and a half months. That is why the mismatch could be a problem and the Catalans might have to deal with Antoine Griezman, Leo Messi and Ansu Fatty in attack for the rest of the season.
Otherwise, the target players are now considered to be potential favorites for the Getafe Angel. However, a new variant has emerged, namely Roger Marty from Levante.
