Nico Williams is all set to Renew Contract with Athletic Club

Real Madrid

Following Kaoru Mitoma’s recent contract renewal with Brighton & Hove Albion, FC Barcelona is about to see the signing of yet another target with his present squad.

The Catalan heavyweights have been keeping an eye on Athletic Club’s Nico Williams for a while now.

The winger has been playing well for the past year or two. The Blaugrana are interested in him because his contract expires in 2024.

Nico Williams OK with Renewal

Athletic Club expects Nico Williams to sign a new deal. Thus, a summer transfer currently appears unlikely.

Williams and Athletic Club have already reached a two-year deal. We will reveal the extension soon, say the club.

Nico Williams, a 21-year-old winger, matches Barça’s style, according to insiders who spoke to MD. The signing of Williams was considered “a market opportunity” because he would join for free once his Athletic contract expired.
But as it happens, there has already been agreement and closure about his renewal. They even speculate that his €50 million termination clause will still be in place in Bilbao.

Bond with the Blaugranas

Nico Williams developed a strong relationship with several of the Barcelona youth, like Alejandro Balde, Gavi, and Lamine Yamal, after interacting with them at the Spain camp.

Assuring that they can comprehend each other merely by glancing at each other, the 21-year-old has really publicly lauded Balde.

Barcelona was mostly inspired by this to explore signing him for free in the summer. In actuality, though, he is more likely to remain at San Mames.

Athletic has begun working on his extension. He seems ready to sign a new contract until 2026 with a €50 million release clause. Athletic has taken note of the possibility of interest from La Liga and Premier League teams.
