Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu says they'll be working the swap market heavily this summer.
PSG star Neymar and Inter Milan striker Lautaro Martinez have both been linked with a move to Barcelona, but Bartomeu pointed out that swap deals are the only way the club can sign a player for the time being.
"I have said before that the coronavirus pandemic has affected many projects and strategies," he noted.
"If players do not come on a swap deal, it is almost impossible for the club to sign players.
"We have spoken with Inter, quite a few weeks ago.
"Currently there is no open conversation, the topic is halted."
