Calendar of FC Barcelona

The FC Barcelona finally has had to sack of Nico Williams afterwards that the Athletic Club did official this Friday the renewal of the extreme by three years more. The official agreement arrives afterwards that both parts had agreed of verbal way the new agreement until 2027 from does some weeks, subtracting for agreeing the last fringes for the continuity of the attacker.

The parts looked for the suitable moment, so that had the repercussion that believed convenient and finally has been this Friday 1 December, in the day before to receive to the Ray Vallecano and shortly before concluding the celebrations by the 125 anniversary of the foundation of the club. The international extreme, that had agreement until final of season, will be still in the group bilbaíno, although it does not have desvelado the total of the clause of rescission, by what seems that Williams has finished attaining his committed to fix it in an accessible figure for clubs 'top' of face to the following two summers.

The Barça has not been able to repeat the same formula

And it is that although certainly this agreement moves away momentáneamente to Barça, Madrid or to the teams of the Premier League, like Liverpool and Aston Villa, the reality is that only it closes the possibility to that any could carry it free from the next 1 July. This situation already happened them this year to the Athletic with Iñigo Martínez, now in the Barça without having left neither a euro in the Basque arks.

It remains clear that the Barça is not right now in a position to pay 50 or 60 millions by the clause of the youngster, further that it could be upper to this figure, but for the Athletic will remain the rest of beaux of face to the next two years. That is the idea of Nico Williams, trying leave money in the club in which it has formed , but yes give a jump of quality in his career, unlike the Muniain, Iñaki or Sancet.

The progression of Nico Williams follows imparable

For now the extreme of 21 years follows with an impressive growth. In spite of a short stop owing to an injury of abductor, the attacker adds a goal and five assistances in 810 minutes delivered in eleven meetings. Besides, it has been very important with Spain this year and seems that it will be in the XI in the Eurocopa of 2024 if no sucede at all odd, another situation that moves away the possibility to see to the Barça moving index card in the short term if his performance in Germany follows shooting the interest of important clubs.
