Koeman presses, but does not expect anything from Laporta

He wants a forward and a midfielder, and above all for the club to clean up the squad, but he has no hope that anyone will arrive. If anything, there will be some way out.


Koeman took advantage of the weekend to ask for signings. He did not only do it in the previous game against Getafe, also after winning 2-1 at the azulones. "Hopefully we can strengthen ourselves because we need it." The Dutchman's sentence could seem contradictory, because the day before he had warned that he cannot manage a squad with 32 players.

But Koeman knows what he says, He wants Umtiti, Pjanic and, if it can be, also Riqui Puig. And he wouldn't mind if someone else left. That would allow him to incorporate players. For starters, Koeman still wants a forward. Despite having Agüero, Ansu or Braithwaite, he would like to sign a scorer because the Dane is not brilliant and the physical performance of Ansu and Agüero is unknown due to injuries. Koeman also wants a midfielder. Although he does not say it publicly, the confrontation with Ilaix has destroyed the plan of the year. The Guinean was the midfielder he trusted the most after Pedri, Busquets and De Jong and now he's going to have to hold on to Nico and Gavi, because he doesn't believe in Riqui, whom he implicitly recommended leaving.

Along the way, this summer Pellegrini, Fabián or Renato sounded, but nothing came. And, to tell the truth, it is not expected that there will be news in the Barça market. If anything, any way out. At this point, it seems that there will not be any highs. Koeman expects nothing from Laporta at this market close.
