On the 13th (Korean time), the Spanish media ‘Pichahes’ said, “Barcelona competes with Arsenal for the recruitment of Martin Subimendi (23, Real Sociedad). However, due to financial problems, the prospects are not bright.”
Recruiting a successor to Busquets is considered a top priority for Barcelona. Busquets’ contract with Barcelona expires at the end of the season. Inter Miami is being discussed as the next destination.
Director Xavi Hernandez’s mind is urgent. According to reports, Xavi has asked the club’s leadership to recruit a long-term successor to Busquets this summer.
Subimendi is mentioned as a strong candidate for recruitment. Subimendi is considered a key player for Sociedad this season. His vigorous activity and rear build-up ability put the team in 3rd place in the league.
Recruitment is not expected to be easy. Aside from Barcelona, Arsenal are also ready to dive into the signing of Subimendi this summer.
It is unlikely that Barcelona will have the upper hand. Sociedad set the transfer fee for Subimendi at least 60 million euros (approximately 82 billion won). For Barcelona, where finances are tight, it can only be a burden.
