For many years Pau Gasol has said that he might return to Europe to end his playing days with Barcelona. Today the president of the club, one day after similar quotes by newly appointed coach Sarunas Jasikevicius, repeated that he “would love” to have Gasol back. And according to the Spanish Radio Station “Cadena Ser”, the two sides are in advanced talks.
As reported in the show “Carrusel Deportivo” the club has advanced talks with the Spanish legend for a two-year deal. While there’s no agreement yet, the surprise is that Gasol does not intend to retire after the Tokyo Olympics, as many assumed, according to the report.
It has to be noted that minutes earlier the Barcelona fan account on twitter named “La Resistencia del Palau” has also mentioned that Gasol and the club are in advanced talks.
The 40-years old Pau Gasol is one of the best players ever in the history of European basketball, a two-time NBA champion with the Lakers, and has won a total of 11 medals with the senior national team, which under him was the most dominant national team of all-times in European basketball.
