Sergio Busquets, the captain of Barcelona, will re-sign with the team, albeit at a lower wage
At the conclusion of the current season, Busquets’ current contract with the Catalan heavyweights is set to terminate. His future has generated a lot of speculation, particularly because a number of foreign teams are interested in signing him on a free transfer.
Barcelona recently sent their skipper a contract offer. According to reports, the Catalan giants have offered a one-year deal with a twelve-month extension option based on how many starts he makes in the upcoming season.
Furthermore, given the club’s financial position, the contract offer made by the Blaugrana entails a significant pay reduction for the 34-year-old player. According to reports, Busquets may be in line for a drastic pay cut of 69%.
It had been stated that Busquets would use the current international break to consider all of his choices and make a decision regarding his future. And it appears that Busquets has made the decision to stay at Barcelona for one more season despite the possibility of a significant pay cut.
The seasoned defender is still a crucial component of Xavi’s plans, and it is believed that he was instrumental in getting the club to extend its contract with the player. If Busquets opts to extend his contract, Barcelona is unlikely to look for another defensive midfielder, though they may sign Ilkay Gundogan from Manchester City, whose deal at the Etihad Stadium is due to expire in the summer.
