The first potential signing Ronald Koeman would take as the new Barcelona boss is Ajax midfielder, Donny van de Beek.
At the helm of the Catalan giants former Southampton and Everton manager replaced the sacked Quique Setien as Barcelona is set to rebuild a massive club-wide after their quarter-final loss to Bayern Munich in the 8-2 Champions League.
With Barcelona still facing financial problems in the aftermath of the coronavirus pandemic, it is also expected that the playing squad will be overhauled besides improvements in the coaching staff and possibly at the boardroom stage.
In the past, though Manchester United and Juventus were also credited with an interest, the 23-year-old was closely linked to the bitter rivals of Barcelona, Real Madrid.
Recently, Van de Beek said he would have left Ajax if it wasn’t for coronavirus, but maintains he’s happy to stay at the Dutch club if a step away doesn’t materialize this summer.
