The Dutchman began working with the Blaugrana squad this week, but still has a few transfer decisions to make.

One of his first actions as Barca coach was to inform a few of the players they are not in his plans for the season ahead.

Those four stars are believed to be Ivan Rakitic, who has since joined Sevilla, Luis Suarez, Arturo Vidal and Samuel Umtiti.

Meanwhile, the futures of the Philippe Coutinho, Ousmane Dembele and Antoine Griezmann – the club's three most expensive signings ever – were said to be uncertain, too.

However, Koeman has now reportedly informed the trio they are in his plans for the upcoming campaign, according to Cadena Copa journalist Helena Condis Edo.
