Earlier on Thursday at a restaurant in Barcelona, Joan Laporta met with Ronald Koeman to discuss his future as well as Barca’s team future
On The Barca’s Team System
Summit between Laporta, Yuste and Koeman; they met in good harmony in a Barcelona restaurant and the president wants a more offensive style of football.
Laporta has asked Koeman for more offensive football, as the club does not like the 3-5-2 system that has been imposed in the last three to four months as a default set-up.
On Ronald Koeman’s Future
Aguero to Barca is a Done Deal
Barcelona are fine with the signing of Sergio Agüero. Despite his age (33), the club value his goal scoring abilities, experience and his closeness to Lionel Messi.
Barca’s team Future – Transfer Rumours
Rigue Puig to stay at Barca
The club is counting on Riqui Puig for the next season. Barcelona is NOT planning on selling him this summer, regardless of whether Koeman stays or not. The club has a lot of confidence in Riqui’s potential and the sporting area doesn’t understand why he hasn’t featured more this season.
Real Betis’ Emerson Royal to Barca
Emerson Royal has a place at Barcelona on the right side of the defense.
He has many suitors but with Dest being young and inconsistent and Sergi Roberto having a bad season with injuries and form Barça could keep Emerson.
To help reduce the wage bill, Barça will listen to offers for Sergi Roberto, Trinçao, Griezmann and Dembélé. Griezmann is the least likely to leave, as his massive salary puts off any teams interested in his signing. If Dembélé does not renew, he’ll be sold.
