Puig’s fate had surrounded him with question marks in light of coach Ronald Koeman’s desire to send him on a loan trip in order to obtain playing minutes that he could not guarantee with the Blaugrana, while the player insisted on continuing and fighting for his place.
According to the newspaper “Sport“In Catalan, the player was already registered in the first team of Barcelona, after his name appeared in the list published by the Spanish League, which includes all the transfers that took place on the last day of the market, where he explained the player’s transfer from Barcelona’s reserve team to the first team.
Ricky Puig continues with Barcelona
The Catalan newspaper explained that this means that Puig will get a number in the first team, which will be the same with his colleague Ronald Araujo, although the last name has not yet appeared on the Liga lists, as the Blaugrana may wait for the final position of the contract deal with Eric Garcia from Manchester CityAnd, if not completed, Araujo is expected to escalate.
With the escalation of Puig, he will not be able to play any matches with the reserve team again, while the newspaper indicated that in the absence of Garcia, it is certain that Coman Araujo will step up and give him a place in the first team, especially after his very good performance against Sevilla.
The duo will have to choose numbers from the available numbers to wear this season with Barcelona, as the numbers 4, which were previously worn by the same coach Coman while playing with the team, as well as 9, after the departure of Luis Suarez, and 25, who is usually worn by the third goalkeeper, remain vacant, as Number 12 may be available in case Ravinia Acantara leaves before market closes.
