Koeman's three goals

The new Barça coach aspires to five or six reinforcements according to he confessed to a Dutch television, but priority are three: Eric García, Van de Beek and Lautaro.


Ronald Koeman has started working at Barcelona and for the moment, the most striking part of his work, according to the questions from journalists at his first press conference, is to lighten the roster of established players. But beyond the exits, the technician does not renounce the entrances. Koeman knows that, like in the subway, before entering you have to let out, but the Dutchman wants reinforcements as much as possible. At least one per line if all the planned departures take place. The objectives set are: Eric García in defense, Van de Beek in the middle and Lautaro in the lead.

A letter to the wise men that as Koeman himself recognized after the presentation on Dutch television Zigoo TV in a short interview is ambitious.

"The big clubs are suffering incredible losses, so it will not be very easy to get five, six new players right away," but we will also include the young ones, "he said.

Already before the arrival of Ronald Koeman, Barcelona had set its sights on recovering Eric García (January 9, 2001), a Catalan center-back formed in the Blaugrana quarry who currently plays for Manchester City. He has one year left on his contract but despite the interest of the English club to renew his contract, Eric has refused to extend his commitment to Guardiola's team, who openly acknowledged the situation two weeks ago: “Eric has told us that he does not want to renew. ”

The question is whether he is leaving now with Barcelona paying a transfer in which a Barcelona player could enter as an exchange, or whether both parties wait a year for him to arrive with the freedom letter.

In the center of the field, French media reported the interest of the new Blaugrana coach for Donny van de Beek (April 18, 1997), Ajax midfielder for whom Koeman was asked in his presentation, but the new Barcelona coach refused to "Talk about names of players who are not here" .

The arrival of Van de Beek or any other midfielder from his court would be logical if we take into account that players like Busquets, Rakitic, Sergi Roberto and Arturo Vidal are on the club's starting ramp, to which must be added Arthur, already sold to Juventus. At the moment, the arrival of Pjanic is closed, but this is an area of the field that, if the expected casualties are confirmed, will have to be reinforced.

Luis Suárez is one of the designated 'sacred cows'. The Uruguayan has all the numbers to leave the club and the substitute dreamed of for more than a year is Lautaro (August 22, 1997), Inter Milan striker. Barcelona has negotiated with the Lombard club in talks that have been accepted by both parties but are currently paralyzed. Inter plays the final of the Europa League against Sevilla and, given the role of Lautaro in the final stretch of the season, its price may be unaffordable for the weakened coffers of the Catalan team.
