Barcelona want to tie down Ronald Koeman to a new contract despite shambolic summer in transfer window

BARCELONA are set to award Ronald Koeman a new contract, according to President Joan Laporta.

Koeman, 58, has less than a year remaining on his current contract, having signed a two-year deal when he joined the club in 2020.

Ronald Koeman is in talks to extend his Barcelona contract, which is set to expire at the end of the season

And because of that Laporta is concerned that his position could be viewed as weak by the players.

Laporta is keen to avoid that scenario and revealed talks have begun to extend Koeman’s stay at the Nou Camp.

He told Onze TV: “Koeman has all my support, my respect and all the confidence so that he can work as comfortably as possible.

“We have already spoken a couple of times with Rob Jansen, his agent, so we are talking.

“I told the coach that he has to be strong, he cannot be in the weak position of ending the contract, so I raised the possibility of extending the contract.”

Koeman has the backing of the board despite overseeing a turbulent period in Barcelona’s history.

Never say thank you for any good thing I do for you but rather when you get the chance, help 3 people and ask them to help 3 each and it proceeds till all get helped.
