The coach of the Netherlands recognized that his arrival at the Catalan club is close, but did not want to confirm anything until he signed.
Barcelona has already completed the dismissal of Quique Setien after the tough elimination before Bayern Munich in the Champions League, and the arrival of Ronald Koeman to the Camp Nou It is an open secret. The coach of the Netherlands admitted the negotiations with the culé club, but did not want to confirm anything.
“I cannot say much at the moment. Yes, I would like to, that is clear, but it is only final when there is an agreement and the signatures are on paper,” said the 57-year-old from Amsterdam.
He also said that heading to Barcelona would be “a dream come true”, but he preferred not to say more words about it until the official confirmation of the agreement, which should take place in the next few hours.
Once Barça makes him official as a new coach, Koeman will travel to Spain immediately to meet with the technical secretariat. The main objective of the Catalans will be to build a new squad of players that will give back to the Blaugrana team the competitiveness it lost in European football.
