Riqui Puig is being one of the most prejudiced players by Ronald Koeman of the staff of the FC Barcelona. In fact, only Matheus Fernandes has had fewer minutes that the one of Matadepera this season, something that leaves very clear what thinks the Dutch of the Catalan. It is evident that the offensive midfield player does not finish to convince him and therefore hardly it is having he this course.

The injury of Sergio Busquets and the politics of rotations that used the technician in Kiev, gave him to the canterano the possibility to play in the second part of the meeting against the Ukrainians. Although it would have to be something positive for him, this party also had a negative reading. Being able to have he from the beginning, the one of Zaandam preferred to put to Carles Aleñá​ in the centre of the field and to Pedri in the mediapunta, reason whereby was acting a night more.

The future of Riqui in this Barça is not very halagüeño and is therefore by what seems that his representative is looking for him team by Navidad. The player, that up to now had denied to leave yielded, could not seeing this option with so bad eyes in these moments and would have allowed that his agent begin to speak with the clubs that are interested in giving him the minutes that does not have in Barcelona.

One of these teams would be the Leeds United of Marcelo Bielsa. 'The Crazy' would be loved with the possibility to have the mediocampista Barcelona and would have given orders to try close the loan. The Argentinian is one of the most enamoured trainers of the game of possession that there is in the world and this would like a lot to the player, that, nevertheless, does not close other proposals that has on of his table.

It seems that in Europe, Leipzig and Monaco also have asked after he and would be had to give him an opportunity. The Germans are clearly the best group that has to his disposal and besides could follow playing European competition in case that they classified for Champions or Europe League. But this is so true like that the competition there will be greater that in the Principality or that in Leeds, by what could have fewer minutes.

The Betis also has interested in Riqui

Also the Betis has to Riqui in mind after the injury of Sergio Channels, that will be of drop several months. The verdiblancos would have thought in the one of Matadepera, in his mate Carles Aleñá or even in the madridista Takefusa Kubo, that could leave the Villarreal in front of the fault of opportunities with Unai Emery. The sevillanos would be another good option for Puig, that this time seems that yes it could go to loan to show his cost.
