Laporta, Yuste and Alemany are already in the Barça offices talking about the continuity of the coach
Wijnaldum’s lawyer has left the Barcelona facilities at the edge of noon
This Tuesday begins the renewal announced by Joan Laporta In the past week. And he does it with a meeting with the football director, Mateu alemany, and the vice president sports, Rafa Yuste, on the future of the technician Ronald Koeman,.
The president has arrived at the Barcelona offices after 11 in the morning to start laying the first stone of the rebuilding of the culé temple. Koeman has not been present but yes Jan Kabalt, a Dutch lawyer representing, among others, Wijnaldum. The 30-year-old Liverpool midfielder has just finished his contract and has sounded in recent times as a reinforcement for the midfield. The newspaper ‘De Telegraaf’ points out that the representatives of the Dutch international have gone to Barcelona to close an agreement for three years.
“Starting next week, decisions will be made to build a more competitive team next year to win the Champions League and Leagues,” Laporta warned last Tuesday, announcing “a renewal process because a cycle has ended.” He has a couple of months to do it before the curtain rises next season. And the first decision is whether to allow Koeman to fulfill the second year of the contract he signed on his day. Josep Maria Bartomeu. If he dispenses with it, he would face a settlement that would make the delicate economic situation even more difficult. The face-to-face meeting with Koeman could occur this afternoon.
In parallel, the rest of the doubts must be cleared. Starting with the continuity of Messi and the arrival of his friend Kun Aguero, something that Pep Guardiola took for granted already last week. “Agüero is close to reaching an agreement with the club of my heart, Barça. He will play alongside the best of all time: Leo Messi. I’m sure he will enjoy it and make my Barça stronger ”, commented the former Barça coach.
Agüero’s arrival could be made official after the Champions League final, just like that of Eric Garcia. Both the Argentine and the youth squad would arrive with the freedom letter, just like Wijnaldum. The club’s economy does not allow us to think of millionaire transfers in a market in which, as happened in the previous one, trading cards will be tried again.
