La Blaugrana spectacularly bowed out of the Champions League at the group stages, for the first time since 2001, following their 3-0 defeat away at Bayern Munich last week.
However, despite only being able to recruit free transfers last summer, due an ongoing financial crisis in Catalonia, Laporta has confirmed there will be transfer activity in the weeks ahead.
“I share your (fans) disappointment with the Champions League exit. We all agree that we have to strengthen the first team”, as per reports from Marca.
“The problem is we have very high inherited contracts that do not give us salary margin.
“We are looking for a formula to improve the team this winter. We are working to achieve that and we will achieve it.”
