"Collado? I prefer Yusuf Demir in his position," Ronald Koeman has told Barcelona TV.

"10 days ago, Collado could've left us for a Belgian team [Brugge or Anderlecht]. Let's see if he stays or not," the Dutchman added.

Indeed, Alex Collado was really close to leaving Barca on loan but the deal fell through at the very last minute.

As for Demir, Koeman has reportedly been impressed with the attacking midfielder so far. The 18-year-old is a Rapid Wien loanee.
