With less than a week to go before the start of the 2022/23 La Liga season, FC Barcelona are working around the clock to free up space in their wage budget and register new signings.

As the club actively tries to offload fringe players from the squad, another trick will be to convince existing stars to accept new offers, preferably with a pay cut.

One of the players vying to do so is Sergio Busquets, as the club started negotiations with the Barcelona midfielder a few days ago, hoping to tie him down to a new contract.

A recent report from Mundo Deportivo gave an update on the situation, suggesting that Barca have already submitted an official offer for Busquets.

The new deal includes a two-year deal, which basically means the Spaniard will be able to extend his current contract, which expires in 2023, until the summer of 2024.

The terms further include an option to terminate the contract next year, given that the midfielder has been flirting with the idea of ​​leaving Camp Nou and possibly joining Major League Soccer at the end of the season. next.

However, Busquets needs to respond quickly to the contract offer as Barcelona only gave him a 48-hour deadline.

The player must carefully assess his future over the next two days and make a decision that suits all parties involved. However, it’s likely that the veteran will choose to leave the club in 2023, ending a successful spell at Camp Nou.

Should Busquets leave in 2023, it will be equally interesting to see how Barcelona react to the transfer, as there is currently no viable long-term replacement for the Spain international.
