The mixed fate of Barça’s two ‘legends’… One candidate for ‘renewal’ – one candidate for ‘sale’

The fates of Sergio Busquets and Jordi Alba were mixed.

Both players are the culprits who led Barcelona’s heyday. Both players are from La Masia, but Busquets has steadily established himself after debuting on the adult stage through age groups, and Alba is a case that came back to Barcelona after gaining experience through a move to Valencia.스포츠토토

Busquets is one of the ‘three idiots’ commonly referred to in Korea. He built a solid midfield line with Xavi Hernandez and Andres Iniesta. He has a strong defensive tendency, but as a Spaniard, he is also excellent at passing and has a high level of ability to solve the game. With Busquets holding up well defensively, Xavi and Iniesta were able to further unleash their offensive capabilities.

As much as he led Barcelona in its heyday, his career is also splendid. He has lifted numerous trophies such as Spanish La Liga, UEFA Champions League (UCL) and Copa del Rey. He also played 143 matches for Spain, winning both the World Cup and Euros.

Alba is also a legend of the team. After re-transferring to Barcelona in 2012, he played as a regular for 10 years. His speed and attacking prowess provided another tactical weapon for Barcelona. He also lifted countless trophies, including the league trophy, Copa del Rey, and UCL, and became the Euro 2012 champion while working as a representative of Spain with Busquets.

However, both players could not escape the years. Alba, who entered the aging curve, lost his greatest strength, speed, and his influence diminished. Busquets was also evaluated that his activity and stamina were much lower than in his prime.

Eventually, rumors of a transfer naturally arose. Busquets’ contract expires this summer, and Alba’s contract expires next summer, but there has been no issue of renewal until recently. Rather, Busquets was often associated with other clubs, such as Saudi Arabia and the United States.

But as a result, Busquets will stay with the team for another year. European football transfer market expert Fabricio Romano said: “Busquets is expected to stay with the team for another season. Talks are ongoing and an agreement is imminent.”

Unlike Busquets, Alba is still unable to escape from the ‘sale’ candidate. ‘Barça Universal’, which delivers Barcelona news, cited a report by Veronica Brunati of ‘Mundo Deportivo’ and introduced six players who could be sold this summer, including Alba’s name.
