- on Dec 12, 2022
The opinions of the Barcelona leadership and coach Xavi Hernandez were mixed over the recruitment of Sergio Busquets’ successor.
Spanish media ‘Sport’ said on the 12th (Korean time), “Coach Xavi wants Martin Subimendi (23, Real Sociedad) as a long-term successor to Busquets. However, President Juan Laporta said he is not actively involved in the signing.
Barcelona are eager to find a successor to Busquets. This is because Busquets is likely to leave the team when his contract expires in June next year. 스포츠토토
Subimendi is considered one of the most likely candidates for the Next Busquets. His vigorous activity and rear build-up ability are not lacking in being called the successor to Busquets.
Director Xavi thought the same. According to reports, coach Xavi and director Jordi Cruyff once again made it clear to President Laporta that the player Barcelona needs is Subimendi.
Chairman Laporta’s response is lukewarm. The media said, “Subimendi’s buyout clause is 60 million euros (approximately 83 billion won). Laporta believes that Sociedad will not sell Subimendi for less than the buyout amount.”
“Manchester United is also showing interest in signing Subimendi. If we don’t move quickly, we may have to look for other alternatives,” he warned.
