Ronald Koeman’s future at Barcelona is up in the air, despite winning the Copa del Rey this season. The Blaugrana slipped up against Levante in a 3-3 draw to significantly reduce their chances of winning LaLiga.
Real and Atletico Madrid capitalised on the situation, and won both their 36th games to put them at 78 and 80 points respectively while Barcelona are with 76. However, should Koeman stay at Barcelona next season, we could finally be seeing Memphis Depay join the club.
Depay has been in talks with Barcelona since last summer and was on the verge of joining the club on the deadline day before the deal collapsed. His contract expires in the summer, and he will be available as a free agent thereon.
Rather, that will be the only scenario in which the player ends up at Camp Nou. There is reason to believe that Joan Laporta is keen on making a change in the dugout. Should that happen, Barcelona could possibly go with other attacking targets.
Sergio Aguero is another possible option for Barcelona to recruit, and the Argentinian is prioritising Camp Nou as his destination. Three clubs have reportedly approached the legendary Man City striker, but he has maintained that his ideal transfer would be to Barcelona.
Additionally, he will only reduce his salary to under €10 million for a transfer to Catalonia. The same flexibility does not apply to the other clubs interested in him. The final decision regarding a new forward will be made in the coming weeks once the season is over.
