Barcelona about to meet Balde’s agent in hopes of a contract renewal

Barcelona

Barcelona’s main objective before the summer transfer window is to renew the contracts of some of their players. Alejandro Balde is one of those names Barcelona should be desperate to keep with them. A new contract proposal for Sergio Busquets as well as Sergio Roberto is currently on the line despite rumors of a move to Saudi Arabia. Another player whose contract expires this year is Inaki Pena.

In addition, La Liga leaders plan to renew Ousmane Dembele’s contract, which expires in the summer of 2024. Alejandro Balde is another Barcelona star whose contract expires next season.

Importance of Balde in Barcelona

Xavi Hernandez has made the 19-year-old his first-choice left-back this season. He is the lead priority ahead of more experienced players such as Jordi Alba and Marcos Alonso. Given Balde’s progress this season, Barcelona is eager to tie him down to a new contract as soon as possible.

Balde’s new contract will be discussed and finalized with his agent, Jorge Mendes, according to SPORT. A contract extension for the La Masia graduate until 2027 is soon to happen according to reports. While both parties support the renewal, reports claim that a final agreement is still due to happen.

Due to his growing importance at the club, Balde wants to be paid similarly to Gavi and Araujo given his status as a regular starter. It is not alarming since the youngster wants to continue at Barcelona, as does his agent, Mendes.

There is a possibility of an agreement. But the deal is yet to happen until the summer.
