Rique Puig on the verge of signing for LA Galaxy after no playing time at Barcelona: reports » FirstSportz
In his bid to leave Camp Nou this summer, Catalan youth star Rique Puig has chosen LA Galaxy as one of the many options for next season. As for FC Barcelona, they’ve had a great transfer window so far and have been able to snap up five outstanding players like Robert Lewandowski and Jules Kounde ready to rock the famous Barca shirt.
FC Barcelona’s financial difficulties have been quite a mystery this season as they have already completed three big money signings – €72m for Raphinha, €50m for Lewandowski, €50m for Jules Kounde – and are not trying to put an end to it prepare their addition any time soon. So they’ve already informed Puig about sending him on on a year-long loan deal.
Is Rique Puig getting closer to LA Galaxy?
It’s also pretty clear that Xavi Hernández doesn’t have the hot prospect in his plans for this summer after signing Franck Kessie to hone that position. He added that he doesn’t want a talent like Puig warming up the bench for the season and that he would like to try his luck somewhere outside of Barcelona and keep growing as a player.
Puig has been approached by American side Los Angeles Galaxy and some sources have already confirmed that if all goes according to plan, the verbal agreement between the team and the player has already been confirmed when Puig will be featured in the Galaxy shirt in the upcoming period will be week.
Despite the verbal agreement, the deal must be finalized soon as the MLS transfer window ends on August 4 and the clubs are expected to confirm the loan deal shortly. There is no doubt about the player’s ability as Xavi has already revealed what a dynamic player he is and how good he is with the ball.
LA Galaxy hasn’t had their best season this year due to a series of inconsistent performances, and things have only gotten worse after suffering another loss to FC Dallas last weekend and now slipping to eighth place in the Western Conference League.
With just 12 games left in the regular season, LA Galaxy would benefit enormously from the addition of Puig to their roster, who is always looking for the ball and can help the team make quicker transitions.
