Smfh. Isn’t Bart on the hook financially or something if he doesn’t raise enough money? Guess they’re trying to send a message to Riqui for that reason? I actually like seeing Puig play for Barca even as a Madridista. And also on a human level I can’t imagine the young dude being as happy as he could be playing anywhere other than his home club. And you get that sense that for him to become his best and continue expressing that complete joy that any fan of the game, even of a rival club, can appreciate he’s gotta be in the Barca colors.The contact was made with him 4 days ago. Since then Koeman shot down his attempts at proving himself with the senior squad. He only has 1 year left on his deal too. I think we'll definitely be reaching out again now that he wasn't even given a squad number. Shamblelona
I’m not going to be too bummed if the business aspect of the game bursts his bubble and they lose a talented player for below market value. But I’m also not shook of a post-Messi Barca that’s already been run to the ground. Sports is theater too, and sometimes you don’t mind seeing your rival have a dude who‘s their prototype that feels like he was meant to play for them. And also entertain you as you root for them to lose. Imo a good Barca also pushes RM to be better.
