World News – GB – Barcelona prepare for double Premier League move in January window


Barca boss Ronald Koeman has two priority transfer targets in England and urged the Catalan club’s board to secure the deals for players on the line in January

Ronald Koeman urged his Barcelona bosses to seal a Premier League double blow for Gini Wijnaldum and Eric Garcia in January

Koeman wanted to take Liverpool midfielder Wijnaldum and Manchester City defender Garcia to Camp Nou during the summer

But cash-strapped Barça couldn’t find the money to get either club to sell

Now Koeman wants the pair in January – and also continues to target former Manchester United striker Memphis Depay

All three are out of contract next year and Barcelona coach hopes his club can raise enough money to strike a trio of deals

« I wanted to bring him here this summer because he has the ability to do fantastic runs from midfield and appear in the box at the right time

« I am convinced that he can really add something to the squad But Barcelona’s financial situation was known in his club »

Koeman added: « There is a chance we will have another chance for Garcia

« But at the moment I can’t know how the club’s finances are in January, so I have to wait and see »

United still have the option to buy Depay, but Barca had a deal ready for the Dutchman to sign in the final transfer window

Koeman said: “Everything was set but because of La Liga rules we knew we had to sell before we could sign our goals

« In the end it wasn’t possible It was disappointing, but Memphis knew how the situation was at Barca »

Depay has scored 58 goals in 144 appearances for Lyon since his £ 16million transfer from United in January 2017
