Barcelona failed with a sensational late move for Tottenham Hotspur forward Lucas Moura, according to a report.
Barca chiefs saw the Brazilian as an alternative to his former Paris Saint-Germain teammate Neymar.
According to Mundo Deportivo, however, the Blaugrana could not meet Tottenham's £45m valuation of the player.
Lucas memorably scored the second-half hat-trick in Amsterdam that took Spurs to the Champions League final, but has started only two of their opening four league games this time around, remaining an unused substitute against Arsenal on Sunday.
The Brazilian last month signed a contract extension keeping him at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium until 2024.
