Rafinha's injury is the main cause
FC Barcelona have not been able to register new players in the last two markets. The last incorporations were in Summer 2014, and Luis Enrique knows he will have a short squad until Arda Turan and Aleix Vidal can join the team.
But Pedro's departure and the long-lenght injury of Rafinha changed plans of the technical secretary and now it seems absolutely necessary to use Winter market to sign more players.
When talking about names, many media talk about these names: Nolito (Celta de Vigo), Denis Suárez (Villarreal), Iarmolenko (Dinamo Kíev), Feghouli (Valencia) or Gundogan (Borussia de Dortmund).
Mundo Deportivo did their own list: Candreva (Lazio), Berardi (Sassuolo), Mahrez (Leicester), Thauvin (Newcastle), Schöne (Ajax), Bellarabi (Bayer Leverkusen), Walcott (Arsenal), Carlos Vela (Real Sociedad) and Jesús Navas (Manchester City).
However, everyone have on their minds the names that sounded in the last summer: Paul Pogba (Juventus) and Koke (At. Madrid).
The players' circumstances vary: some could play Champions League (like Nolito, Denis or Gundogan) but many couldn't, because they have already played it with another team this season (Bellarabi, Feghouli or Navas).
