In the past, Riera was part of the Barça youth academy for nine years, from the age of ten to his nineteenth. In 2014 he conquered the UEFA Youth League with the Spanish top club, where he played together with Munir El Haddadi and Adama Traoré.
NAC is currently not keen on a departure from Riera, who is seen as a mainstay in the hunt for promotion to the Eredivisie. Moreover, Barcelona is betting on a deal with closed exchanges: the Catalans want to exchange Riera for another promising player. The Breda leadership does not see much in such a construction, knows BN DeStem.
The Brabanders are not broad in the defenders after the departure of Jan Paul van Hecke. In addition, Riera is an important building block. He may only leave the Rat Verlegh Stadium for a substantial transfer fee.
Barcelona B is currently playing in Segunda División B, but the goal is to get promoted. That is why it looks for players who have experience in the competition. In the past, Riera also played for Celta de Vigo B and Villarreal B.
