La Liga will shut up shop for a fortnight at the end of this week, but in all likelihood Barca will continue to work feverishly behind the scenes in order to ensure any deals are brought to completion during the January window.
Tata Martino alluded to as much, per Inside Spanish Football:
I'm focused on the football side of things. I don’t get involved in the economic side of things. When you have important business situations, there’s another part of the club that deals with that.
In a footballing sense, I would very much like to finish the season with this group of players. That’s good for finishing competitions, if we don’t have any injury problems.
What I can’t say, is that this will happen or not.
Let's take a look at any new faces that have been linked with the Blaugrana in the last couple of days and remember to check back throughout the week for updates.
