The FC Barcelona expect to make him a 'washed of expensive' to his staff during the following summer. The Catalans expect to concretise the arrival of diverse players that reinforce the most weakened positions of the square of Xavi Hernández, and from the offices of the Camp Nou work to achieve said aim. Nevertheless, the delicate economic situation of the institution will not allow to do big investments if before they do not produce exits, by what several footballers culés are in the 'eye of the hurricane'.

In this sense, one of the main 'signalled' is Riqui Puig. The canterano debuted with the Barcelona T-shirt in LaLiga on 13 April 2019 under the orders of Ernesto Valverde and aimed to be one of the figures of the culés in the future. However, from his official promotion to the first team in the season 2020-2021 the midfield player has not known to do a gap in the staff so much of Ronald Koeman as of Xavi Hernández, by what this last already has communicated him that it does not go in in his plans for the following campaign and the club will look for him an exit.

This situation could be taken advantage of by the Benfica, the one who has posited like one of the big candidates to do with the services of the footballer. The 'eagles' would be looking for the cession of the of Matadepera, the one who would have given the seen well to his signing by the lisboetas and would have the Estádio Gives Light like his destination preferred. The trainer of the Portuguese team, Roger Schmidt, has a high assessment of the player, to the one who wanted to carry in his moment to the PSV Eindhoven, by what the traspaso is more than feasible.

By his part, the Fiorentina also would have touched the door of the mediocentro, as they inform from 'Relief'. The square 'violate' want to 'fish' in the two big of Spain, and after having more than advanced the management for the incorporation of Luka Jovic to his rows, would have put looks it in Puig to reinforce his medullary. The group directed by Vincenzo Italian would handle good report of the canterano culé, and although desconocen the details of the operation, the interest of the club would be important.

Has poster in LaLiga and the Series To

To the equal that the 'Fiore', in the Series To another entity would be after the steps of Riqui. Such is the case of the Lazio, where are in research of a mediocampista offensive and Maurizio Sarri already would have given the 'OK' to launch to by the 'perla' Barcelona. Of the same form, from Valencia would be attentive to the situation of the footballer, since Gennaro Gattuso would have asked the contracting of Puig to give him start to the 'revolution' of his staff. The list of 'girlfriends' is long, and the future of the 'eternal promise' is increasingly far of the City Condal.
