Spanish football headlines for May 26.
Barca deadline on Koeman
Barcelona news on Wednesday is once again dominated by the future of boss Ronald Koeman, with no firm decision seemingly being taken by the club.
A series of meetings were held by senior club officials yesterday before they met with the Dutchman, but there was no update on whether or not he will continue into the second year of his contract.
