Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu has given an interview to Mundo Deportivo where he’s talked about the futures of youngsters Riqui Puig, Ansu Fati and Ronald Araujo.

Bartomeu says the trio will all have first-team squad numbers next season as will new signings Francisco Trincao, Pedri and Matheus Fernandes.

“We already have seven new players. We have bet on Trincão, Pedrito and Matheus for the future, and they will have first team numbers alongside Araujo, Riqui and Ansu. Pjanic will consolidate from the beginning.”

The Barcelona president also offered an update on Neymar, saying “if there are no player exchanges, it’s very difficult for Neymar to come” and also confirmed once again talks for Lautaro Martinez have been put on hold.
