Griezmann and Riqui Puig have become two problems for FC Barcelona for this summer. For different reasons, both could have to leave, but the players are not for the work and it will be difficult to 'move' them
Joan Laporta has a lot of work by in front and will have to resolve several pending subjects of face to this summer. The president wants to do box with the descartes and there are names that already are in the ramp of exit. Miralem Pjanic, Philippe Coutinho, Junior Firpo, Samuel Umtiti, Net Walled, Martin Braithwaite or Matheus Fernandes have a lot of probabilities to go out and expects that they do not follow the season that comes.
However, there are names that right now are an incógnita and that they could turn into a problem for the club. It treats of Antoine Griezmann and of Riqui Puig, that by distinct reasons are not working as they would have to and to which the club could plant in the market. Beginning by the French, his case is the more peliagudo, since it arrived like a world-wide star by 120 million euros in 2019 and for now has not convinced to almost anybody.
His performance the past course was disappointing, although it finish with some numbers at all desdeñables of 15 goals and 4 assistances. This campaign, with Ronald Koeman to the control, has gone to more and already carries 14 so many and 11 passes of goal in total, by what could finish with around 20 targets with ease to final of season. But in spite of these statistics, futbolísticamente speaking the Frenchman does not convince and therefore there is who think that the best would be to do box with him.
One of the best active that has the Barcelona to take out money is Griezmann and therefore it is posing the possibility, but the reality is that sell him could be a very complicated mission. The player is not by the work to leave and will put fetters to his sale in case that it try . If Leo Messi goes , will win importance and no will pose him go, but if the Argentinian remains and the club wants to do box with him, Antoine could turn into a serious problem.
Riqui Puig also could deny to go out
On the other hand, Riqui is one of the young promises that have the Barcelona, but does not have any 'feeling' with Koeman. The technician wanted that it went yielded in summer and also tried it in winter, but did not achieve it. The midfield player insisted in remaining and win a place, something that still has not achieved. In 2021 it has played much more and it is explaining more for the Dutch, but keeps on being one of the last of the row.
Without too many minutes and with the feeling that his paper does not go to change too much the course that comes, the club could pose the option that it go yielded or traspasado with some type of option of repurchase. It is a jewel for exploding and will have a lot of beaux, by what offers there will be, but the subject is that he accept them. Up to now it has denied to go out of all the ways, something that could be an important work for the Barça in summer.
