Didn’t talk about the return of Lionel Messi (36, Paris Saint-Germain) come back? Those who drew attention with a surprise meeting are expected to leave Barcelona one by one.
Barcelona officially parted ways with Sergio Busquets (35), who served as captain on the 10th. Busquets has decided to leave Barcelona at the end of this season after an 18-year partnership.
Busquets is a leading figure in Barcelona’s most recent heyday. Debuting in the first team in 2008 as a youth, he grew into the world’s best midfielder with the trust of Pep Guardiola, who led Barcelona at the time. He worked perfectly with Xavi Hernandez and Andres Iniesta to complete an extreme possession football.
Busquets, who took over the captain’s armband after Messi left for Paris Saint-Germain in 2021, even demonstrated leadership for two seasons. Ahead of the expiration of his contract, the possibility of an extension was predicted, but he chose to part.
Another senior member is also expected to leave. Jordi Alba (34), who was the third captain after Busquets and Sergi Roberto, also discussed his future with the club.
On the 11th, Spanish media ‘Sport’ said, “Alba’s agent and Barcelona had a very important meeting on Wednesday. Barcelona presented two plans to Alba.” of salary cuts,” he explained.
Alba is currently included in the highest salary among Barcelona players. Barcelona is pushing for high-income workers to drop or cut in order to stabilize the salary cap. Alba is a veteran who has played 11 seasons only in Barcelona and wants to stay as much as possible. However, it is known that he fully understands the situation in Barcelona and is considering a transfer. 스포츠토토
Following Busquets, the key is how it will affect Messi’s future if Alba also chooses to part. Messi visited Barcelona unexpectedly last month and had a dinner with Busquets and Alba. As now, there was a lot of talk about Messi’s return to Barcelona, so her meeting drew attention.
In fact, there have been predictions that Busquets and Alba, who were contemplating where to go after the meaningful meeting, may remain with Messi’s return. However, as the possibility of them all leaving has increased, Messi’s return has also changed.
