La Liga Gives Barcelona Green Light To Sign New Player
Feb. 18, 2020
Barcelona have been permitted to sign a forward on an emergency basis in the next 15 days after the severity of Ousmane Dembele's injury was confirmed.
France international Dembele faces six months out after tearing his hamstring, with the World Cup winner joining Luis Suarez on the sidelines as the Uruguayan recovers from knee surgery.
Suarez has been ruled out until May by the club, while the Catalans allowed two of their young forwards - Abel Ruiz and Carles Perez - to depart last month in a bid to raise some capital.
La Liga rules state that clubs may be permitted to sign and register a player outside of the transfer window if exceptional circumstances can be proved.
The newly-registered player must already be playing in one of the top two tiers in the Spanish game, or be a free agent.
