Koeman feels Pique is still needed, but Sergio Busquets may lose his regular start

Ronald Koeman has been busy making his team, talking to the players, deciding who to keep and who to not, along with transfers as well. Already he has told Luis Saurez that he’s not in Koeman’s plans and he also wants to get rid of Rakitic, Vidal, Umtiti, and Junior Firpo.

Now, coming to the other two senior members of the club, i.e. Gerard Pique and Sergio Busquets, Koeman has talked to them as well, according to Sport.

The Dutchman has told the experienced defender that he still will be a key figure in his team and an untouchable, in the Barcelona side. However, things get a bit complex for the midfielder as he is still wanted at the club but he will no longer get the privilege as he is used to.

This means Busquets will no longer be guaranteed to start all games, especially the crucial games and he has to start from the bench, much like what both the club legends, Xavi and Iniesta did in their last days at the game.

As Sport reckons, Koeman has told Pique that he is important because of his leadership qualities at defense. The Dutch coach wants him to keep being the ‘Kaiser’ of a more intense team.

According to media reports, Koeman wants to change the 4-3-3 setup to 4-2-1-3 setup i.e. use two holding midfielders and use a creative midfielder (Coutinho or Rique). So, De Jong will be back at his traditional role at Ajax and in the national team, supported by Pjanic and occasionally by Busquets as well.

Sergio has earned a reputation at the club, playing throughout his career for Barca, so giving him the choice to end his career in a more respectful is much deserved. However, if he feels negative about the secondary role, then the club will sit down with him and talk because he has the right to decide.

Koeman is also looking to make use of the transfer market and plans to bring in these players:
