Four more days until the end of the January transfer windows.
And the Blaugrana are yet to sign a striker.
Barcelona are set to beat Manchester United to Bruno Fernandes‘ signature, reports in Spain say. In a complex deal, the Blaugrana will then send him on a six-month loan deal to Valencia. In exchange, Rodrigo Moreno will move to the Camp Nou for the remainder of the season.
This is all according to Superdeporte, who that Barcelona’s plan is to sign the Portuguese’s team midfielder and leave him in Valencia on loan, which would, in turn, make Rodrigo Moreno’s signing cheaper. The negotiations are complicated, which is why the clubs are looking for ways to make sure all parties involved are satisfied.
