Newly appointed Barcelona manager Ronald Koeman is firmly behind the club’s idea to integrate exciting attackers Pedri and Francisco Trincao into the first-team next season, according to Spanish publication Sport.
The duo are highly-rated prospects for the future but the rebuild that has been sparked by the embarrassing 8-2 defeat to Bayern Munich opens the chance for the pair to play a role immediately.
Sport claim that Koeman has already taken time to learn the Catalan giant’s plans for the starlets, with the Dutchman happy to include them in the first-team picture.
It’s added that the 57-year-old will meet the duo for the first time in the next couple of days, with the attacking talents already having started their pre-season training.
Hopes will be high for Trincao after his big-money signing.
The 20-year-old hasn’t featured for Barcelona yet, the Portuguese talent joined in a €31m deal in the January transfer window, as per the club’s official website.
Excitement is definitely building around the right-winger.
Pedri, a left-winger, is just as exciting as Trincao. As per Mundo Deportivo, Barcelona signed the ace in a €5m deal from Las Palmas last summer, with the ace officially joining the Blaugrana now.
The starlet has been superb this season, scoring three times and chipping in an impressive seven assists.
