The duel between the two rivals in the transfer market is reportedly coming back next summer and this time it will involve Barcelona’s young talent, Riqui Puig. According to news from Mundo Deportivo, Puig’s future is still under threat next season, because the player has difficulty getting the chance to play under Ronald Koeman’s command.
Puig has become increasingly difficult to compete after Koeman prefers another young player, Ilaix Moriba, who seems to be more trusted by the coach lately. With this situation, of course, the opportunities for the 21-year-old midfielder to become a core player for Barca will be reduced next season.
This condition is what reportedly makes several clubs, especially the two Italian giants, Juventus and Inter, very interested in bringing Puig in the summer transfer market. Both teams are said to be looking to rejuvenate their squad because in addition to having too many senior players, both of them also want to reduce their salary burden by bringing in young talents who of course have lower salaries.
Puig’s own talent is considered suitable to be developed by both the Bianconeri and the Nerazzurri. However, there are obstacles for the two Serie A giants to land the midfielder, namely from a financial perspective because of the economic conditions that have not been good lately.
So if indeed Juve or Inter are serious about bringing Puig, then the two clubs might offer some of their players as a means of bartering. This method has indeed begun to be used frequently to help reduce the amount of transfer fees during a pandemic.
Barcelona Believed To Be Difficult To Release Riqui Puig
Barcelona are believed to be having trouble releasing Riqui Puig again in January, after the La Masia dropout refused to be loaned out to another club last season.
The reason is, Puig only thinks about Barca, and wants to remain in the giant Catalan squad. He believes, with his work and sacrifice, he can convince Ronald Koeman to play him in the matches played by the Blaugrana.
The same thing happened in November 2019, when his statement meant that he was ready to leave Barca. At that time, there were still a few weeks left before the winter transfer window and, despite the news, the young Blaugrana player never considered giving up his makeup as a Barca player.
The same story was repeated after a few months because, during the summer of 2020, Koeman asked him to leave Barca after he was left out of his plans for the season. Koeman hopes Puig will be loaned to another club, so that he can gain experience playing in top-flight football, and he can return to Camp Nou someday in even better condition.
Perhaps that is the easy solution for him, but the challenge for the Matadepera born player depends on him and he decided to stay at Barcelona, and show Koeman that the 57-year-old coach was wrong. But, until now, Koeman has never given him the ball, even though Puig doesn’t want to give up.
In fact, as Sport reveals, Puig maintains an unshakable faith in his football game, and believes the opportunity for him will come one day. When the opportunity he had been waiting for arrived, Puig knew very well how he should use it as a Blaugrana player – something he is currently doing.
However, the reality is not what the 21-year-old imagined. The reason is, Puig has only played for three minutes so far this season, where he played at the Alfonso Perez Coliseum when Barca were beaten by Getafe.
In fact, Ronald Koeman continued to hold on to his words, because he had not played Puig and, besides that, he also felt that he would not give him that opportunity in the near future. However, football is becoming a highly volatile world and the young squad player admits the only thing he can think of is to be 100 per cent ready when the time comes.
In this case, the fact that the number of squad members is very small allows injuries to occur and indirectly it will be an opportunity for Puig to defend Barcelona.
It turns out that, apart from the system used by Koeman, which is certainly the most unpleasant for him is exploiting Puig’s ability, the Dutchman must see his squad plagued by several injury problems in a number of positions.
For example, Philippe Coutinho, who fortunately will be playing again, despite another serious injury then suffered by Ansu Fati. In addition, Sergio Busquets also suffered an injury in the Spanish national team.
In short, this season is still going to be quite long, Barca have lost many players due to different injuries. Puig believes that his hard work will present opportunities, and show that he deserves more playing time.
The Barcelona technical secretariat, which has an obligation to sell before buying new players due to the lack of cash in the club’s treasury, is said to have received proposals from several European clubs who are interested in a number of Barca players, including Puig. At only 21 years of age, Puig has proven to have a great talent to play at the highest level, which unfortunately he has no place to show that at the Camp Nou.
Apart from this, Barcelona’s Technical Secretary, Ramon Planes, admits that he is only considering a loan agreement for Puig. The reason is, he believes the player will become an important football player for Barca in the future.
Borussia Monchengladbach and Schalke 04 asked him to join last summer. However, the last to knock on Barca’s door were the two top clubs in Portugal, Benfica and Porto. Barca finally always gave the same answer, because the player never wanted to open the door to leave Camp Nou, even though it was only temporary.
