Ronald Koeman wants to sell this summer, the top name on his list is Riqui Puig. The graduate student has not played a single minute in the 3 opening matches of Barcelona in LaLiga, as his coach has made it clear he is not in his plans.

Riqui Puig’s start to the season is a continuation of a tough campaign he endured in 2020/21. Despite appearing 24, he was only on the field for 600 minutes in total, as he failed to convince the Dutch coach that he should be kept on the sidelines.

Of all the players Ronald Koeman wants to sell this summer, the top name on his list is Riqui Puig. The graduate student has not played a single minute in the three opening matches of Barcelona in LaLiga Santander, as his coach has made it clear he is not in his plans.

Riqui Puig’s start to the season is a continuation of a tough campaign he endured in 2020/21. Despite appearing 24, he was only on the field for 600 minutes in total, as he failed to convince the Dutch coach that he should be kept on the sidelines.

Riqui Puig is not a counted backup option. Sergi Roberto replaced Pedri with won-over Getafe yesterday and when he came out injured, Gavi was substituted.

The Dutch coach has fully articulated his feelings for how far down Riqui Puig is.

“We have four or five players injured and when they come back, some will be in a very difficult situation,” Koeman said.

Riqui Puig is still determined to win at his childhood club despite facing a difficult situation with Koeman. If he decides to go ahead and demand more minutes, the decision will have to be made immediately.
