Ronald Koeman identifies Man Utd target as his first Barcelona signing
Former Barcelona player, Ronald Koeman, has reportedly identified Manchester United target, Donny van de Beek, as his first Blaugrana signing at Camp Nou, according to Le 10 Sport.
Van de Beek had drawn the interest of Manchester United in the past.
Koeman is expected to be confirmed as Barcelona’s new manager within the next 24 hours, and he’s already planning to tell the club’s hierarchy to make the Ajax midfielder a priority signing this summer.
DAILY POST recalls that the Barcelona board held an emergency meeting on Monday following last week’s humiliating 8-2 Champions League quarter-final loss to Bayern Munich and took the decision to sack Quique Setien, who took over from Ernesto Valverde in January.
Barcelona will have to pay compensation to the Dutch national federation before they are in a position to confirm Koeman’s appointment, but the 57-year-old is already plotting his rebuild.
Van de Beek scored ten goals in the 37 matches last season for Ajax.
He became a regular fixture in Koeman’s improving national side and is available for around €35million.
