Barcelona unlikely to make a second bid for Chelsea’s David Luiz.
Barcelona boss Gerardo Martino says the club have ended their hunt for a centre-half.
The La Liga champions reportedly had a bid for Chelsea’s David Luiz rejected last week, while Liverpool’s Daniel Agger is also said to be a target for the Catalan club.
But Martino says he is happy with his squad and claimed the Nou Camp outfit are unlikely to strengthen until January.
“A new centre-back? I’m happy with the team I have. There’s always the January window if we need anything. Last year’s problems in defence were the result of injuries. We have enough options if everybody’s fit,” Martino said at a press conference.
“Puyol is on schedule with his recovery process. We are awaiting his return and expect him to be match fit again come September.
“We have Puyi in defence, Gerard Pique, Javier Mascherano, Marc Bartra and even Adriano. If someone gets injured, the January transfer window is only months away.”
