The Barça has a big problem with Riqui Puig. The canterano follows without 'despegar' in the Barcelona group and his future is an incógnita
The task of 'pending' of Joan Laporta and the sportive direction of the FC new great Barcelona folders week by week and already are many the urgent subjects that have to resolve in the offices of the Camp Nou. Further of the renewal of Leo Messi, the signings of Erling Haaland, Eric García or Memphis Depay, to the Barça concerns him the situation of the current staff and the possible exits of the club in this summer.
One of the players that are in the ramp of exit would be Riqui Puig, the one who was descartado by Ronald Koeman for the final of the Glass of Rey. The canterano was summoned for the party, but to the equal that Miralem Pjanic or Junior Firpo, remained out of the bench in the crash in front of the Athletic of Bilbao. It is, without place to doubts, a called of attention of the Dutch trainer, the one who is not very fanatical of Riqui.
And it is that Koeman has left him clear his position since it landed in the City Condal. It invited him, in this moment, to look for an exit of the club, but the canterano decided to remain and struggle by a place in the team of his life. However, it has remained very stagnated and the irruption of players like Ilaix Moriba have braked even more his development in the Barcelona group. From the Barça, in spite of everything, trust his potential and technical quality but... It will be sufficient so that it remain a season more in the club?
The logic aims to that Riqui has to go out in this summer and lor more likely is that it was in quality of loan. In the Barça consider that the canterano has to grow like footballer and, for the moment, in the club will not have a lot of opportunities, considering that the centre of the Barcelona field is 'overbooked' and that his mates (Busquets, Of Jong, Pedri, Ilaix) surpass him with grow, at least for Koeman.
Also it is necessary to consider that to the player would like him follow trying in the club in which it has formed and that, as it has said in different opportunities, wants to win a place in the approach. In some point, Koeman had used it like revulsivo, but from does a few weeks his leadership has been invalid, also by the irruption of Ilaix in the first team.
The Barça receives offers
The intention in the market of signings of summer will be to look for him a new team to Riqui Puig so that it can keep growing. As it aims the newspaper 'Sport', from several European clubs have communicated with the Barcelona group asking after the index card of the midfield player and, possibly, his future will be out of the Camp Nou.
Like this then , the Catalan newspaper informs that the FC Barcelona has received calls of several teams of LaLiga Santander, but also ofc lubes important in Portugal, Italy and England.
