Just when the transfer window had closed, and sport media around the world took a little time to relax before starting ahead of the summer market… Ousmane Dembele suffered a severe hamstring tear.
So bad is the Frenchman’s situation that it’s thought he could be about for five months, which would allow Barcelona to sign a replacement, thanks to a little used Spanish football regulation.
The player signed either has to be a free agent or already registered in Spain.
This has started a whole new transfer window for the Catalan media, and has been grasped with predictable excitement.
Several names have already been linked, and on Wednesday evening, Sport bring a new one: Borja Iglesias.
In claims Real Betis fans really won’t want to hear, it’s stated Barcelona have already been in contact with those around the striker to see what his opinion would be on the potential move.
There’s no indication what the response has been, and it’s made clear Real Betis wouldn’t make a transfer easy, but Sport believe Barcelona especially like Borja Iglesias and won’t give up easily.
