The future of Riqui Puig is subject to debate at Barça, where many think about a loan that the player prefers to avoid. If he leaves in the winter transfer market, Ajax is an unlikely destination
The market of signings shows in the horizon with several pending questions in the FC Barcelona, and one of them is the future of Riqui Puig. The talent of the midfield player has caused that the Second Division B remain him small, and as for the moment there is not margin to do him a place in the plans of the first team, already debate on which is the best option so that, to his 20 years, can follow progressing.
In a recent interview, Patrick Kluivert spoke of the possibilities of the canterano, and opened the door to a cession. The recently appointed director of the formative football barcelonista considers that this is a road that would have to explode more, and that it could help to a footballer that, given the fierce competition that exists in his place, would obtain profits to compete with less pressure and in a category of greater level.
To the Dutch asked after him the Ajax and admitted that it would be an interesting option, but also mentioned to an Utrecht with which exists an agreement of collaboration. By style and sportive bet, the Eredivisie is a competition where the Barcelona can develop to some of his young promises -Oriol Busquets is settling in the Twente-, although, as it is evident, could find some restrictions.
It is difficult that the culés can take advantage of of a loan to the group of Amsterdam, because the priority is for his own perlas. As well as other clubs can come off well in this type of pacts, because they would enjoy of a piece of quality and to an affordable price, in Johan Cruyff Sand live breeding to his stars and, in some cases -see Frenkie of Jong and Matthijs of Ligt-, selling to improve his economy.
In these circumstances, the Barça values the Second To or some affine entity, since although the relations with the 'ajacied' are excellent, the stage does not seem ideal to resolve this concrete case. Except that one of the two parts involved show his direct interest in betting by an agreement, the one of Matadepera no mudará to the Dutch capital in the month of January of 2020.
Valverde Does not want hastes with Riqui Puig
In one of his last press conferences, Ernesto Valverde warned that it does not want hastes with Riqui Puig, neither to the hour to rise him neither neither to the hour to leave . The technician explained that it is necessary to have something of calm to analyse his situation: "One can have an idea, but is a decision that corresponds to the player and to the club. We want that it was near of the first team, but there are a lot of players in this zone of the centre of the field and afterwards is necessary to value".
"There are players that are more reacios to go out because they think that it cuts them a possibility to arrive to the first team, but in the Athletic there were a lot of players that went out and afterwards went back them to repescar. It is like Cucurella, that now is a different player to the that was does a year and half. It is something that has to decide the club and go to expect to the market of winter to see what happens here", added.
