Xavi knows very well that he will not find a new Sergio Busquets, at least not immediately. That is why the coach would like the captain to continue at least one more season, but before his departure there is a name that still does not convince him

Calendar of FC Barcelona

The future of Sergio Busquets in the FC Barcelona is one of the big incógnitas that follows having the Barcelona club for the 2023, and for the next season. The captain culé seems decided to abandon the Camp Nou when it finalise his agreement in summer and thus in the entity know that they will need a signing for the mediocentro.

The list of candidates is expand, but in the City Condal have very clear who is the big favourite: Martin Zubimendi. And l club has time following to the mediocampista of 23 years of the Real Sociedad, although the option of Rubén Neves has even more time in folder. The Portuguese was the pivote title of his selection in the World-wide, although hardly ever it finished the parties on the lawn.

In fact, 'Sportive World' aims that the profile of Neves follows without convincing to Xavi Hernández, neither neither to Joan Laporta. They know very well that it is an interesting footballer, but is not what need for this position right now. With agreement until 2024, his signing in winter or summer would be an interesting opportunity, by his market and age, but do not see him able to exert the function of Busquets in the centre of the Barcelona field.

The technician understands that the Portuguese has to play with somebody to his side and that is not the profile of mediocentro that look for in the Camp Nou. However, Zubimendi, fulfils with the function that want for the staff but the big problem is that the txuri urdin renewed his agreement until 2027 and keeps his clause of 60 million euros, something that does not seem too likely that can go down.

The ideal always is expensive

The ending of agreement of Busquets, as well as it happened with the one of Hammered, will help a lot to the Barça to recess mass salaria, but will not hit directly to face an upper operation to the 50 'kilos'. This is what does that Neves still keep on being an option, but from his profile futbolístico seems that it will have to follow his career in the Premier League.
