Amidst other rumours from Camp Nou making up this summer’s football transfer news, Riqui Puig wants to remain with Barcelona.
Riqui Puig, a young Barcelona midfielder, is a subject of the avid interest of a number of clubs this summer.
According to Mundo Deportivo, the midfielder has attracted the eye of scouts from several clubs across Europe.
But, unlike other Barcelona players considering a football transfer out after Lionel Messi’s exit, he is not interested in leaving.
Football Transfer News – Riqui Puig Wants to Remain with Barcelona
Riqui Puig appeared in just two Barcelona games last season and he has remained on the bench this season, too.
Ronald Koeman has reportedly even told the 22-year-old that, after being absent from the coach’s plans for last season, that he still isn’t in Barcelona’s plans for this season as well.
In fact, Puig was a substitute that Koeman did not use in Barcelona’s first La Liga game of the season.
Indeed, neither Koeman nor his coaching staff even sent him to warm-up.
In light of all this, with two years left on his contract, Barcelona expected to let Puig leave.
This is because Barca thought the midfielder surely would wish to exit Camp Nou.
However, Puig is reportedly unwilling to give up his Blaugrana dream just yet, and he wants to stay at Barcelona.
Riqui Puig has less than two weeks before the summer transfer window closes to change his mind.
After that, we believe Ronald Koeman will again relegate the youngster to another season on the bench, with little action.
