Barcelona have reportedly received offers for Riqui Puig from an MLS club. The club is reportedly LA Galaxy.
However, both the player and club are yet to decide. Although, the player has been transfer listed for this summer as he is not Xavi’s plans for the future.
RIQUI PUIG AND LA GALAXY TRANSFER LINKS FULL STORY
According to reports, LA Galaxy are reportedly interested in signing Barca midfielder Riqui Puig. They are also ready to offer him a three-year contract. The report also states that Riqui Puig is considering accepting the proposal. This move will benefit him financially and also help give him game time. Barcelona are also ready to sell him this summer.
However, the report adds that Barca have still not accepted the bid. Although, it is not supposed to be the problem. Riqui Puig has to accept the proposal before August 4 as it is the deadline to register new players in the league. Barcelona has also said they won’t cause any problems with his transfer. So the ball is now totally in the midfielder’s court.
BARCELONA ARE KEEN TO SELL THE DEADWOOD PLAYERS
Barca manager Xavi is keen to see the players that don’t feature in his plans. They are even considering terminating their contracts. Many reports indicate that Xavi and the club think many players are being paid more than they deserve. Players like Martin Braithwaite, Memphis Depay, and Sergino Dest are also on the transfer list. However, they are failing to attract the clubs due to their high wages.
Riqui Puig seems to be another one on the list. However, unlike the above players, the midfielder is keen to leave Barcelona. He wants to restart his career at a new club. He also has offers from teams in Spain. However, the offers do not excite the club or the player. The lack of offers is also understandable as the midfielder sometimes has not even made the match-day squad.
The midfielder has failed miserably to establish himself in the first-team squad. The move to the MLS will be somewhat of a disappointing move. He was highly regarded as a top midfielder by the Barca academy people. However, it seems like dreams have not flourished into reality for Riqui Puig and Barcelona.
