Nikola Mirotic’s future seems to be away from Barcelona and his departure could take place this summer.
Initially, the Home of Glory Twitter account reported that Mirotic is out and the biggest sports newspaper in Barcelona “Mundo Deportivo” was able to confirm from sources close to the club, that Mirotic’s departure is considered “a very real possibility”.
Considering the foreseeable budget cut that the basketball section of Barcelona will suffer, in which the entity allocates the most resources after football, this move makes sense financially.
The gross contract of the Spanish-Montenegrin for next season includes total expenses near 10 million euros, has a considerable weight in the budget and that’s why the termination of the deal would be one of the first options on the table.
Per Mundo Deportivo, the two sides are already negotiating Mirotic’s release and compentation. It should not be forgotten that Mirotic has a signed guaranteed contract with the club until 2025.
Of course, the club’s official doesn’t confirm anything yet.
“Nikola Mirotic is an FC Barcelona player and has a contract. Let’s hope that together we can lift the Spanish league title”, is the official reaction.
