Barcelona manager, Ronald Koeman, has said the club needs to dip into the transfer market if they want to improve.
However, he admitted he is not confident of being given the funds to strengthen his squad.
Barcelona are lagging behind Atletico Madrid in the title race, following a slow start to the campaign.
However, recent victories against Huesca, Athletic Bilbao and Granada cannot gloss over the fact that Koeman’s squad are lacking strength in depth, which is likely to hit them hard in the race for LaLiga and the Champions League.
“My position is known: we lack people, but the economic situation of the club is an influence,” Koeman said.
“I think we all think the same. If no one arrives, I accept it and we continue the same, but if we want more we must sign.”
