Rique Puig
Barcelona youngster Rique Puig joins Leeds United

Newbies of the English Premier League Leeds United were granted the opportunity to sign Barcelona’s youngest Puig on loan.

Reports from 90Min claim that Barcelona doesn’t want to sell one of its most prestigious properties on a permanent basis, and although Puig isn’t in Ronald Koeman’s plans, the club thinks that a loan arrangement to another club would give it the much-needed time to play in support of its growth.

Rique Puig has only played three minutes in La Liga this term and wants to go out on loan with Real Betis being the other club said to be interested in his services; the La Masia graduate expected to leave the club in January.

Rique Puig confessed to COPE back in October that he dreams of making it into Spain’s squad for next summer’s European Championships and that would mean he has to play regular football with RB Leipzig and Monaco touted to be following keenly on the developments at Barca.

The player has found minutes hard to come by at Camp Nou due to the presence of Frenkie de Jong, Sergio Busquets and Miralem Pjanic who are Koeman’s preferred midfield options. He however featured for the club in their Wednesday Champions league tie against Kyiv.
