Barcelona left-back Jordi Alba has admitted that the La Liga giants are yet to commence contract renewal talks with him, despite his current deal only having 18 months left to run on it, as reported by ESPN.
As per the aforementioned report, the 29-year-old has conceded that the current situation is “strange” as his present contract doesn’t have long left to run. However, he has reaffirmed his desire to remain at the Camp Nou for as long as he is wanted there.
However, if the Blaugrana have decided they would prefer to seek an upgrade on the 67-cap Spain international, then Alba would have little choice but to seek pastures new.
The Playmaker FC squad decided to wind-up some unsuspecting Brazil fans at the Emirates on Saturday night. Watch the hilarious results in the video below…
Plenty of Premier League clubs would be interested in signing the decorated defender in the summer, but Arsenal in particular ought to be priming themselves to capitalise upon any opportunity to land the full-back that may arise.
With current first-choice left-back Nacho Monreal ageing, and his back-up, Sead Kolasinac, largely failing to deliver for the Gunners, Unai Emery will likely be in the market for a new left-back by the end of the season.
Four-time La Liga winner Alba is a player of the calibre Arsenal require if they’re to achieve their ambition of restoring their standing as Premier League title-contenders and one of the elite outfits in European football.
What do you think, Arsenal fans, should Barcelona opt to let Alba go, would you like to see him at the Emirates Stadium next season?
