The past summer, Ronald Koeman put several names on of the table to reinforce the staff of the FC Barcelona, of which had taken the control. The Dutch technician was conscious of the big economic collapse of the Barcelona club like consequence of the pandemia and is thus that had to resignar when Josep Maria Bartomeu informed him of the failure in the three open roads.

The three open roads that the FC Barcelona had opened on request of Ronald Koeman had names and surnames: Eric García (Manchester City), Memphis Depay (Olympique of Lyon) and Georginio Wijnaldum (Liverpool). Three players that finish agreement in June of this 2021, one by each line of the field. Nevertheless, neither his advantageous contractual circumstance did that the culés could cover his arrivals.

Months after fracasaran the three operations, has remained showed that Ronald Koeman had all the reason when it left to fall that the staff was short and that needed the signings. The FC Barcelona is accusing the injuries in all the lines and, of face to the season that comes, the aims will keep on being the same if the hero of Wembley continues in the bench.

The technician asked his arrival in January, but understood that it was impossible by the economic situation of the entity. Win the one who win the elections and follow or no the Dutch in the bench, seems that his return is done.

Georginio Wijnaldum

For Ronald Koeman, Georginio Wijnaldum was this versatile midfield player with physical power, arrival and technical that needed after drops like the ones of Ivan Rakitic or Arturo Vidal. It finish agreement with the Liverpool and, to his 29 years, keeps on being an interesting option to complete the centre of the field for having a distinct profile to the Pedri, Frenkie of Jong, Sergio Busquets, Riqui Puig...

Memphis Depay

Memphis Depay Is a polyvalent attacker that can play so much in the sides as in the tip of the attack. Ronald Koeman wanted him like relief of Ousmane Dembélé and, in spite of the explosion of the French, the forward of the Olympique of Lyon keeps on being a potential signing. If at all rare sucede, will arrive beside Eric García in hardly some months, although his case is not so encarrilado like the one of the canterano.
