Real Madrid GM Jorge Valdano does not expect any new signings in January.
Real coach Jose Mourinho has called for a new striker, but Valdano is lukewarm on the prospects.
"In principle there will be no one in January, except if we see a great opportunity, but we're not counting on it," said Valdano.
"We are not talking about attacking recruits, but we've opened the market with Gonzalo Higuain's uncertainty.
"Hopefully this will be resolved."
