Barcelona presidential candidate Victor Font has left the door open to new signings being made before the January 24 election.
However, he insists all three candidates, which also include Joan Laporta and Toni Freixa, must agree on the players in question.
Font said, "Seeing how the elections could be delayed, I think we have to work together, all of us, candidates and management committee, to take the two important decisions there are now, in the winter transfer window.
“They tell me that Eric Garcia wants to come and I think that relations with City are good and there could be an interesting economic deal.
“The coach has put a list of positions he wants to strengthen on the table and we have to try and sign there. The other big decision is to take this on against the club's liquidity problem, possibly by using a line of credit, to reach the best solution for the club."
