Xavi has full confidence in Alejandro Balde and has asked the club to make a step forward in their negotiations with the left-back, Diario Sport’s credible Ivan San Antonio.
Barcelona want to offer the 19-year-old a new deal until 2027. Balde would also get an improved salary and a higher release clause.
It is expected that Alex will be promoted to the first team in January. Perhaps Barca will want to reach an agreement with him before that.
Despite his age, Balde is already a regular starter at Barca. This term so far, he’s played 1,050 minutes across 15 matches and provided three assists.
