Although to the Dutch technician have done him a lot of criticisms and there is those who ask his exit, the true is that the one of Zaandam has a positive point in his management like trainer
In 1988, Ramón Mendoza, the president of the Real Madrid in that period, did famous by recriminarle to the technician of that then, the Dutch Leo Beenhakeer, for having left in the banking to the goleador Emilio Butragueño of the following way: "You has played with the heritage of the club".
At present, and if we see what does the Barcelona, Koeman is doing totally the contrary of Beenhakeer: Revalorizar economically the sportive heritage of the entity. To the Dutch trainer can criticise him a lot of things, but if there is something that has attained his management with the Barcelona is to give him the opportunity to arrive to the first team to young talents that could have happened unobserved or finish exploding in another club.
A good example of this, is that it is that the value of market of Araújo, Mingueza, Pedri and Ansu Fati has shot since Koeman occupies the bench blaugrana. The next that they could follow him are Nico González, Alejandro Balde, Pablo Martín Páez and 'Gavi'.
The last data of Transfermartk leave clear the big increase that in alone twelve months have young Barcelona footballers that have attained to do a place in the first team. The most spectacular case is the one of the of Pedri, priced by Transfermarkt in 7.5 million euros when not even it had arrived to the Barcelona of the UD The Palms. When it signed by the Barça his value went up to 15 millions and, to his 18 years, already costs 80 million euros.
A case that aims to equiparable is the one of the midfield player Gavi, the one who with 17 recently fulfilled years has turn the international absolute younger of Spain that has been priced in the market of signings. Mingueza Is another that has given an enormous jump in his value since it arrived Koeman. The international olympic is priced by Transfermarkt in 15 million euros and a year backwards only cost 200.000.
Ronald Araujo cost 10 millions in July of 2020 and now arrived to the 25 millions. The side Alejandro Balde his value has grown to 500.000 euros, more than the double of the 200.000 that cost does a year of agreement to Transfermarkt. The mediocentro Nico González, today with 19 years, was valued in 100.000 and his value increased to half million of euros.
The case of Ansu Fati is different, but no surprising. With 18 years, almost eleven months of an injury in which it has happened four times by the operating theatre, costs some 60 million euros. When Koeman arrived to the place of trainer of the Barça Ansu was priced in 50 millions.
It is not of extrañar that Laporta affirmed recently in statements given to RAC1 that one of the main aims of the club was "to renew to all the young players that have, because they are answering well and are in a process of renewal". "Next week I trust can give you a good news", announced.
The only exception is Riqui Puig. In July of 2020, his value was of 25 million euros and now costs 18. The young midfield player has not achieved to convince to Koeman and this even to said in front of the press that has a lot that improve. Another almost similar is the one of Àlex Hill whose value has kept in the same five million euros that cost a year backwards.
