- The player made this request to Xavi and his agent, Mendes, and the latter told him that Gattuso loves him and also Abde
Nico González (20 years old) is an ambitious guy. He knows that at his age he has to play as much as possible and since at Barça this is complicated, he has asked to leave in search of a team where, as a loan, he can gain experience. Along these lines, yesterday he asked Xavi, his coach, to let him out. The request surprised the coach but he understood the reasons of the Galician, whom he had asked weeks ago to stay as a substitute for Busquets. However, when it seemed that De Jong was more outside than inside and hardly anyone remembered Pjanic. Instead, it is now possible for both to continue.
With Xavi‘s OK, Nico spoke with his agent, Jorge Mendes, and he told him that what could be closed first was to go to Valencia. Nico spoke with Gattuso, the ‘che’ coach, and the Italian guaranteed him a lot of prominences. And then Nico asked to go on loan to Valencia, who by the way also wants Abde on loan. The Levantine club, as Marca pointed out, has already requested Barça’s transfer.
Barça asks him to extend the contract
But Barça has one condition: Nico‘s contract ends in 2024 and the club wants him to renew until at least 2025. He is thinking about it but his will to leave is firm, as he has already let his coach know.
