Barcelona Sign Luuk de Jong Gegara Koeman – Barcelona’s decision to sign Luuk de Jong in the summer was on the personal recommendation of coach Ronald Koeman.

The Spanish League giants announced the signing of Luuk de Jong on Tuesday (31/8) local time. The player is on loan for a season from Sevilla with a permanent purchase option.

The new Barcelona player has played for Sevilla since the 2019/2020 season. Then the Dutch national football team player has collected 5 assists and 19 goals in 94 appearances with the team nicknamed Los Palanganas. So that the presence of the player can strengthen the Spanish League giants’ attack line even more sharply after Antoine Griezmann left for Atletico Madrid on loan.

Although the Catalan football club was able to bring him. But it’s been reported Sport, internally there is some reluctance from the Blaugrana to bring him to the Camp Nou in the summer. However, Ronald Koeman has known him since working with the Dutch national team and believes his presence can make Barcelona’s front line look much better.

Ronald Koeman himself previously continued to defend Memphis Depay because it was doubtful that he could make a big impact for Barcelona. Interestingly, the player who was bought from Lyon was able to perform at his best and now he believes De Jong can do the same.

The arrival of Luuk de Jong to Barcelona of course made the Dutch smell at the Catalan club even more pronounced. Because, he is the third player in Ronald Koeman’s squad.

As is known, before bringing the Spanish League giants first brought Memphis Depay and Frenkie de Jong.

After the international break, Barcelona will play the first match of the group phase of the 2021/22 Champions League competition against Bayern Munich, Wednesday (15/9) early morning WIB. While in La Liga Barca will play Granada on 21 September.
