Koeman with 32 names on paper between fixed discards and

Two weeks before the market closes, the Bara has been able to save the first match ball with the inscription of Eric Garca and Depay for the drop in salary of Piqu, but he still has a lot of work ahead of him to finish putting together what will be the 21-22 squad, at least until January.

Ronald Koeman It has 32 names on the board, distributed among those who have all the confidence, those who can go out if there are interesting options, those who seek a way out and those who homegrown players who have already appeared and that they will alternate filial with first team. We do a review line by line.

Koeman’s message to the fans


Although Net was willing to go out, the fact that Ter Stegen is out at the start of the season and that an offer did not arrive that would convince They invite the continuity of the Brazilian, who will face his third campaign as a substitute for the German. As a consequence of the injury to Marc Andr, Iaki Pea it is also not moving for now. At least until January.


Koeman it is overflowing with defenses. With the signings of Emerson and Eric Garca and the outputs of a Todibo that was not in staff and Junior Firpo, the result is 10 defenders, yes, with different circumstances. Umtiti, whistled and signaled, not to follow. TO Lenglet You are looking for a destination, but until something interesting arrives in substance and form, it will not move. We must add the fixed ones (Dest, Piqu, Araujo, Mingueza and Alba) and the squad that appears, the left-handed side Bucket, green (turns 18 in October) but with projection and newly renovated (in addition to being represented by Mendes).

Koeman therefore it has two pure right-handed sides, Emerson and Dest, with the North American being able to play changed leg if necessary due to absence or rest of Sunrise. In addition Mingueza he also competed as a right-back for much of last season. scar, now discharged, can act as a central, where they will send Araujo, Piqu and Eric, with the doubt of the continuity of Lenglet. There are plenty of options to alternate a line of four or bet on three centrals.


It is already known that the Bara It is very difficult to make more signings, but Koeman wants a midfielder. The non-hiring of Wijnaldum, the disappearance of Ilaix (more outside than inside) and the discard of Pjanic, With which Koeman does not count, leaves a somewhat scarce core: Busquets, De Jong, Pedri and Sergi Roberto with more gallons, a Riqui who is still determined to continue despite the fact that he will have fewer opportunities and a Coutinho whose performance is unknown after has been confirmed to stay this season.

Pedri’s dreams: From being the best youngster in the Euro to the Olympic Games

They are joined from the base by three players with a great future. Starting by Nico Gonzalez, who already made his debut against Real Sociedad and we must not rule him out as natural substitute for Busquets; going through the surprise of Yusuf demir (18 years old), who already showed off in preseason, especially against the Juve, playing indoor; and ending in the youngest Gavi, a 17-year-old from Seville but already with minutes in friendlies, another player who will make his debut this season if everything goes smoothly.

Koeman He has also asked for a forward despite the fact that he now has eight attackers on the roster, albeit with different asterisks. Ansu, Agero and Dembl They are injured of different consideration and duration, all in any case with extended periods and therefore doubts about how they will reappear. Collado, Braithwaite and the last registered Manaj They are on the market and no one falls in love with Ronald, although on Sunday I had words of praise for the dans. As it is, for now the indisputable available are Depay and Griezmann.
