Well, 2021 is off to a great start for Barcelona and Rigui Puig. According to a report from Mundo Deportivo, Barcelona and Puig have agreed to a new deal.

The belief that Puig is one of the most coveted talents in La Liga still exists, despite the faltering appearances under Ronald Koeman. There looked to be a chance that Puig went out on loan this summer due to the influx of midfielders vying for time at the Camp Nou, but for one reason or another, he stayed.

Now he seems to be locked up at Barca for the next few years, till the 2023 summer. This is great news for Barca and their fans. Puig and the youth at Barcelona should give everyone hope for the long term success of the club.
