The Catalans will spend less and do more player exchanges as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.
Josep Maria Bartomeu, Barca president, insisted last month that the club would still be “capable” of bringing in top players.
However, Bartomeu hinted that deals could be structured in a very different way after the crisis.
“There is not going to be as much money in the transfer market because of the pandemic,” Bartomeu said.
“But I predict that we are going to see a lot more swap deals.”
Barcelona have already committed to two transfers that will be completed in the summer.
Forward Francisco Trincao will move to Camp Nou from Braga in a €30million deal and Las Palmas midfielder Pedri will join for an initial €5m.
