Ronald Koeman Sells 12 Barcelona Players

Barcelona coach, Ronald Koeman, made a bold move. Two weeks before Barcelona played their first match in the Spanish League 2020-2021, Koeman prepared a revulsion step.

According to The Sun’s report, Saturday (12/09/2020), the revolution in question is selling 12 players at once in the 2020 summer transfer market! Of the 12 names, eight of them are senior personnel, namely Luis Suarez, Martin Braithwaite. Arturo Vidal, Jean Clair-Todibo, Nelson Semedo, Rafinha, Samuel Umtiti and Junior Firpo.

Meanwhile, the other four names are young footballers who have entered and left the Barcelona senior team. They are Juan Miranda, Mossa Wague, Monchu and Oriol Busquets.

The names above will be released by Koeman for appearing less than optimal with Barcelona in the 2019-2020 season. In addition, the names above are also considered not suitable with Koeman’s development pattern at Barcelona.

In fact, the issue of the release of names has been circulating in the last few weeks. El Pistolero, nicknamed Suarez, is linked with Juventus.

Then Arturo Vidal, the midfielder with the Chilean passport, is considered to be one step away from moving to Inter Milan. The 33-year-old midfielder will reunite with his former coach at Juventus, Antonio Conte.

Subsequently, Jean-Clair Todibo was on the radar of a number of English clubs. After selling the names above, Barcelona will automatically bring in a number of players.

A number of names surfaced. They are Memphis Depay (Olympique Lyon), Georginio Wijnaldum (Liverpool) to Eric Garcia (Manchester City). The number could increase, depending on Koeman’s needs.

One thing is certain, Barcelona must step on the gas from the start of the 2020-2021 season. Because, if Barcelona performs badly, not only its future, but also the fate of Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu will be threatened.

If Barcelona performs poorly this season, Bartomeu may no longer be elected president of the Blaugrana – Barcelona’s nickname. For your information, the Barcelona presidential election will be held on March 15, 2021.
