Spanish La Liga giants Barcelona are reportedly getting ready to offer a couple of players at the club contract renewals, according to MARCA. The club will move to handpick a couple of young players and hand them new deals to tie them to new contracts in the next couple of years as they plan for the future. The players that are said to be on the list of those who will extend their contracts include Ousmane Dembele, Oscar Mingueza, and Ilaix Moriba.
Renewing the contract deals of the three young players now appears to be a priority at the club and according to the report by MARCA, talks have started between the club and the agents of the three players. While talks have only commenced, it is believed that it will only take a couple of weeks to get get the deals over the line and delivered so the club can focus on other important businesses.
Barcelona boss Ernesto Valverde has indicated that Philippe Coutinho has been unlucky with the Catalan giants during the current campaign. The Brazil international has barely started a game for the Blaugrana since early December and this has recently raised the speculation regarding his future with the Spanish champions.
Speaking to reporters, Valverde admitted that Coutinho is going through a difficult phase with the Catalan giants and termed the situation as being ‘unlucky’. He added that both Coutinho and Ousmane Dembele remain vital figures to the team while not ruling out the possibility of the duo playing together more often.
