LaLiga: Barcelona Squad not Good Enough – Koeman admits as Atletico win titl

  Barcelona manager, Ronald Koeman, has said the squad is in need of an overhaul. The Catalans finished third in LaLiga behind champions Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid. Captain Lionel Messi is yet to agree a new contract, but Koeman feels the club needs to support their superstar with quality additions. “When we arrived we took the template that was available. “[Sergino] Dest only came on the last day. For me this squad is not made to have the level that it demands and that we want for Barcelona. “There are older players with all due respect. And there are young players who have to gain more experience to be better. The project is not done, in one season you can not do everything,” Koeman said following the 1-0 win at Eibar on the final day.

Koeman Hoping 2-1 Defeat to Celta isn’t Messi’s Last Game for Barcelona

Barcelona manager, Ronald Koeman, has said he hopes Lionel Messi has not played his last game for the club at Camp Nou. Messi headed in his 30th league goal of the season, as Barca lost 2-1 in their final home fixture of the year. The result saw their title hopes end mathematically. Messi is out of contract at the end of June and he has not yet agreed to a new contract with the club. Next week’s game at Eibar, therefore, could be his last in a Barca shirt. “I hope not because I think [against Celta] he has shown his effectiveness and that he’s still the best in the world. “It [would be] impossible to play without him. But it is Leo on his own and, to win more games and get more points, we need more players to score goals. “But [his future] is a question for him. Fo...

Solskjaer Makes Real Madrid star Number one Transfer Priority

  Manchester United is preparing to make a £40 million offer for Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane this summer, the UK Mirror reports. United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has told the club’s senior officials that he wants Varane next season to partner captain Harry Maguire. Varane has spent the last decade at Madrid, but is understood to have told them he wants a new challenge. The 28-year-old has one year left on his current contract and United are confident they can take advantage of that. United have tried to sign the Frenchman a few times in the past, but are hopeful they can be a third time lucky this summer. Solskjaer has admitted United need two or three world-class signings this summer to challenge for the title, with a central defender a priority.
