Barcelona offers a two year contract extension deal to Sergio Busquets

Josep Maria Orobitg, the agent for Barcelona midfielder Sergio Busquets, met with Jordi Cruyff and Mateu Alemany, the club’s directors, to talk about the player’s contract extension

He has been given a two-year deal by Barça, with the second year of the agreement being optional contingent on appearances. According to additional claims, the club captain would only receive net wages of about €3–4 million annually, a substantial decrease from his previous compensation.

Less than four months remain on the 34-year-present old’s Barcelona contract. Additionally, manager Xavi Hernandez wants to hang onto his skipper for another season because the seasoned player is still a crucial part of the overall picture. Busquets, who has offers from teams like Inter Miami and Al Nassr, has not yet received an official contract offer.

The La Masia graduate will receive a deal, Barcelona president Joan Laporta said during a media appearance last week. Now it appears that discussions have begun in that direction after Orobitg met with Cruyff and Alemany, the two club directors, to speak about the extension of the former captain of Spain.

However, a fresh agreement will only be feasible if Busquets is prepared to take a significant pay cut. One of Barça’s top earners, the Spaniard cannot be kept on his current pay because the team must reduce its wage budget by at least €150 million. This season, Busquets has participated in 32 games for Barcelona in all categories, recording three assists in the process.

The midfielder has turned on some assured performances at the base of the midfield, despite the fact that he is not getting any younger. Recently, Xavi switched to using four central midfielders, which has benefited his skipper. If he is prepared to take a pay cut and continue working at Camp Nou for another year, only time will tell.
