FC Barcelona likely to Miss out on signing Nico Williams

FC Barcelona is still keeping a close watch on the transfer market in the hopes of coming across an “opportunity.” Barcelona might take a look at players whose contracts are about to expire, those with reachable release clauses, or even young players with potential who are worth investing in.

Nico Williams Target to Miss

Nico Williams was one of the most recent deals Barcelona was able to secure. The Spanish winger, who is now under contract with Athletic Bilbao, has bright potential. Williams has amazing skill; he can dribble lethal well, create moments of creativity, and achieve remarkable speeds.
Even at the young age of 21, he already forms an essential part of Bilbao’s framework. But when word spread that his contract was about to expire, several rumors started to associate the gifted winger with FC Barcelona.

Set For Renewal

As those rumours persisted, reality started to set in. Even if it is upsetting for Barcelona, the player is expected to extend his contract shortly, according to Mundo Deportivo. His present contractors have succeeded in persuading him to sign an extension since he wants to stay in Bilbao a little bit longer.
But there is still hope for the future. According to MD, players in his age group usually sign longer contracts in order to prolong them. Nico Williams, in contrast to those situations, is probably only going to agree to a two-year deal with Bilbao.

Only valid until 2026, by which time Williams will be around 24 years old, and with other terms that are not very advantageous to the La Liga team. His €50 million release clause is still in place, with possible adjustments limited to a €10 million range.

FC Barcelona Connections

Williams and a number of Barcelona players on the Spanish national squad are still becoming close. In the Spain setup, two of his close buddies are Gavi and Alejandro Balde. All of them might simply have to hold off on playing together in Blaugrana colors for a little while longer.
