The extension of Alejandro Balde’s contract with Barcelona is now just a step away to final decision. This week could see the final agreement to bind him until 2027 with a €1 billion release clause become reality. The Blaugrana are aware of the full-progress back’s and the market interest he is generating, so they have made a final effort to secure his continuity in a clear commitment to the future.

Despite the fact that it has not been as easy as expected, no one at the Catalan club has questioned the agreement. Alejandro Balde always wanted to remain at Spotify Camp Nou. He also wanted to get renumuration similarly to other important team members like Pedri or Ansu. Although the relationship between Barça and the agent is shaky, his agent, Jorge Mendes, had previously warned that there were clubs willing to pay a high price for a transfer. Nevertheless, a compromise is done already.

Balde has received sporting guarantees from the club that he will continue to be a starter. He had already got playing time from Ronald Koeman, but Xavi Hernandez kept Ronald Koeman from using his loan to start him ahead of Jordi Alba and Marcos Alonso at the beginning of the current season. The club’s priority is to be able to register him and the other renewals before making any new signings.

The left-back, who is already a full international for Spain, left his future open a few weeks ago with statements that did not guarantee his continuation. Despite everything, he and his agent have always worked hard to keep his Blaugrana status. Barça will thus secure an important asset and have the renewals chapter nearly completed with Balde and Iaki Pea, who will almost certainly give their approval in the coming days.
