Mateu Alemany ‘s decision to leave Barcelona has shaken the club. The club stated yesterday that the sporting director will resign at the end of the season. The sports director of Barcelona has decided to leave the club in order to pursue another endeavour at Aston Villa. Despite having a contract until 2024, he will leave the club on June 30, 2023. This might cause serious problems for Barça ahead of the summer transfer window.

Disheartened Alemany set to leave Barca

Alemany was an admired individual in the transfer market, serving as the club’s mastermind in the pursuit of players such as Robert Lewandowski, Raphinha, and Jules Kounde, among others. His most notable achievement was luring these players despite the club’s inadequate economic and sporting potential.

As a result, his departure will surely be a big setback for Barcelona. According to MARCA, one of the key reasons for Alemany’s decision to leave the club was the importance placed on characters who had little knowledge of Barça.

Club president Joan Laporta, for example, frequently sought counsel from agents such as Pini Zahavi and Jorge Mendes, despite the fact that they work in their own best interests. Furthermore, Alemany was upset that every detail of Barcelona’s executive duties had been leaked to the media. He specifically refers to the leaked discussions and transfer facts. Another major reason Alemany decided to resign was a lack of confidentiality at the leadership level.

The statement from Barcelona read:

“Mateu Alemany has transferred to the president of FC Barcelona, ​​Joan Laporta, with the intention to start a new path. But guaranteeing that he will complete the entire summer market with the entity”.

Barca sporting director didn’t favour Messi’s return

Apart from that, Alemany did not agree with the club on decisions such as Lionel Messi’s return. Also he was against the renewals of veterans such as Sergio Busquets and Sergio Roberto. However, it appears that the worst is yet to come for Barcelona. Sadly another senior director, Jordi Cruyff, considering his future at the club in the aftermath of Alemany’s departure. Everything points to a dramatic executive shakeup at Barcelona this summer, which might significantly change the club’s transfer ambitions. With Alemany poised to leave Barcelona, former player Deco appears as the most obvious candidate to take over his place.
