Barça is preparing for next season and there are many unknowns that seem to be being resolved, especially with the issue of Leo Messi and Ronald Koeman
The season did not finish like the FC Barcelona expected and have remained a lot of doubts on the way that they have to be resolved immediately to understand what prepares the immediate future of the Barcelona group, knowingly that they are necessary the reinforcements in the changing room, the continuity of Lionel Messi and the final decision regarding Ronald Koeman and his charge, remembering that the Dutch remained very distinguished and 'touched' after the Barça threw LaLiga.
With an economic situation so delicate, is very difficult that Joan Laporta take decisions quickly and was able to change the reality of the Barcelona entity overnight, although it was the intention, because there are a lot of open fronts. In this case, they are very important the strategic decisions that finish with good results for the club and for now, although conrtinúan having doubts, Laporta is treating to do the work.
The imminent traspasos of Eric García, Memphis Depay, Sergio Agüero or Georgino Wijnaldum, to cost zero, are a proof of this, but still remains a lot for doing of urgent way. Beginning with Leo Messi, the one who still has not defined if it will remain or no in the club further of 30 June. The good news is that the feelings are very good and the Argentinian is putting of his part to access to a renewal. The problem is that the Barça has not been able to present him an agreement because they are expecting of the results of the economic audit.
Because yes, Messi has a very good relation with Laporta and his agent and lawyers have kept conversations and meetings with the maximum Barcelona mandator, but need an offer and for the moment there is not it. The hope arrives with the declarciones of the president of this Friday, when it announced in press conference that "the new agreement of Messi goes well, but is not done. We have to follow working all the executives involved and also from presidency. The relation is good and have the feeling that we are preparing all what do lacking inside the possibilities so that I Read follow", had confirmed.
With the case of Ronald Koeman the situation is different and it will be necessary to expect to see what decides Laporta, but has a lot of possibilities to remain and give him continuity to his project until at least the summer of 2022, when it finalises his agreement. It fits to remember that the club apparently communicated him that it was looking for a replacement and pactaron a term of two weeks to go back to gather . In case that it do not achieve to a new trainer, will be the Dutch the one who continue.
"No descartéis to Koeman, has the profile" said Laporta, but has much more for resolving. It is not a secret that the one of Zaandam was not his 'favourite' when it was in the candidature to return to the presidency and will remain to see if it is sufficient what has achieved in this season to value his permanence in the club, something that does some weeks seemed impossible but that now begins to take strength.
One of the problems is that the surroundings of Koeman is not happy with the deal that is receiving the trainer by part of the club, in all the senses. After the visit to the hospital, the agent of Koeman, Rob Jansen, said that "it is a total foolishness. To a president no allows him say things like this at all, this is an invasion to the privacy. To Ronald only measured him the arterial pressure. It has had a cateterismo cardiac and, therefore, control it from time to time. This is all what is".
Besides, the agency that represents it ironizó in social networks with the deal of the Barcelona, publishing a 'tweet' in which they said that "imagínate. I want to marry me with you, but have doubts. Give me two weeks to find to a better candidate. If I can not find to the suitable person, will marry us anyway". A proof that, really, are not very happy with how the FC Barcelona is handling his situation.
