Ronald Koeman Identifies Former Player To Replace Lionel Messi

Ronald Koeman Identifies Former Player To Replace Lionel Messi

By Mike Parrott

Barcelona manager Ronald Koeman has identified a former player of his to replace Lionel Messi. The Argentine handed in a formal transfer request on August 25th with Manchester City being the favourites to sign him.

The long-awaited Barcelona rebuild might finally be coming.

With Lionel Messi asking to leave the Catalan-based club after handing in a transfer request earlier this week, new manager Ronald Koeman might have one of the hardest jobs in football history.

Koeman already has a familiar face at the club in Frenkie De Jong who he has coached while being the national team manager of the Netherlands. But there are reports of Koeman wanting another familiar face at Barcelona.

With Barcelona set to make a lot of money off the eventual sale of Messi, which could be as high as his £631 million release clause, Koeman wants to spend some of that money.
