Imminent decision for a FC Barcelona executive


While Barça are hoping for a return of Lionel Messi to Catalonia, the Spanish club, leader of La Liga, will receive good news very soon.

Sergio Busquets Gavi FC Barcelona

If Javier Tebas, the president of La Liga, put a brake on RMC concerning the possible arrival of the Argentinian at Camp Nou this summer, FC Barcelona still hopes to achieve this big blow. But the Catalan club is targeting players other than the 2022 world champion, and in other positions than that of striker. The formation led by Xavi Hernandez has a particular strong need on the right of his defense.

This is why the Thomas Meunier rumor has reappeared in the columns of the Mundo Deportivo. According to the Spanish media, the 31-year-old Belgian will leave Borussia Dortmund after a failed year. The former Parisian, regularly injured and cold with his coach Edin Terzic, has played little this season (18 appearances, including 10 in the Bundesliga, for 14 starts). The right side has indicated to his management his intention to leave, one year from the end of his lease. Barça, which can only count on Frenchman Jules Koundé on the right, intends to position itself on the file. In the past, Thomas Meunier had already almost joined the Catalan club. It could be the right one this summer.

Busquets for one more year?

FC Barcelona should also be released from a weight concerning Sergio Busquets. Indeed, says AS, the captain of Barça intends to accept the offer of extension of his always club. Involved, the defensive midfielder agreed to drastically lower his salary so that the Spanish club is in the nails of financial fair play. Finally, this one-year extension must be accompanied by an option for an extension of an additional year for the Spaniard.

This season, Sergio Busquets, despite his age (34), is still a major element of the first team (37 appearances).
