LAGOS, Nigeria (VOICE OF NAIJA) – Jordi Alba is apparently planning to leave Barcelona, while the team anticipates making an official announcement soon at the conclusion of the current campaign.
According to Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, the Spanish left defender will leave the team as a free agent in the summer.
Sergio Busquets’ contract ends at the end of the current season, while Barcelona has already bid Gerard Pique farewell this year.
Several reports coming out of Spain on Wednesday morning claim that Alba is currently leaving through the Camp Nou exit door.
Alejandro Balde, who has had a fantastic breakout season, has forced the defense to play second fiddle all season, which has led to his departure.
Even though Alba still made 29 appearances across all competitions, she only contributed two goals and four assists.
The Spanish international had earlier expressed a desire to stay and believed he would play for the team again the following season, but it appears that his lengthy tenure at the organization is now finished.
