Koeman leaves Camp Nou with future undecided after meeting with Laporta
The head coach entered the club's offices with his agent, Rob Jansen, at around 8pm and left after a brief meeting with the president, Alemany and Yuste.
Ronald Koeman could be heading into his last few hours as Barcelona coach. The Dutch coach's long-awaited meeting with Barcelona president Joan Laporta finally took place on Tuesday evening and was surprisingly brief.
At around 8pm local time, Koeman arrived accompanied by his agent, Rob Jansen, at the club's offices where president Laporta, vice-president Rafael Yuste and director of football, Mateo Alemany, were waiting for him.
Koeman briefly meets Laporta
The meeting was very brief, and 28 minutes later, the coach and his agent left the Barcelona offices with a very serious look on their faces and were seen off at the door of the offices by Rafael Yuste.
Earlier in the day, the media expectation around the club's offices was growing. Mateu Alemany, the club's sporting director, arrived at the offices shortly before 10am, followed shortly afterwards by Laporta.
Barcelona interested in Wijnaldum
The arrival of a Dutch lawyer, Jan Kabalt, specialised in sports law, created interest around Camp Nou today. He has advised various clubs such as Feyenoord and the Dutch federation itself. According to Cadena SER, he also handles the legal affairs of Georginio Wijnaldum, the Liverpool player, who has been of interest to Barça for the last year on the recommendation of Koeman.
