According to Blaugrana head coach Quique Setien, the club will have to sign a new striker after the Uruguayan player got injured.

Uruguayan striker Luis Suarez has been ruled out for the next four months after he was injured in Barcelona’s loss to Atletico Madrid in the Spanish Super Cup.

The player injured the meniscus in his right knee earlier this month and already underwent knee surgery.

This means the Spanish juggernauts will have to look for a replacement and boss Quique Setien already admitted he might look for a replacement during the winter transfer window.

“It’s true we’re speaking about it,” Setien said ahead of Wednesday’s visit to Ibiza in the Copa del Rey according to The Telegraph.

“But we still have to move things on a little bit.”

He added: “Everything else has to be studied exhaustively, then we will see what the most convenient [option] is.”

“It’s an issue I still can’t answer and I am not going to do so. I have spoken about something with the club, but nothing in concrete.”

“They’re internal issues and it’s preferable for me if you don’t ask me, because I am not going to say anything, so let’s not waste time,” he concluded.
