Barcelona longtime duo Sergio Busquets and Jordi Alba are set to finally join the Barcelona training camp this week. The Spanish duo has been taking a few weeks off since getting knocked out of Euro 2020 by Italy.
The club have already played two pre-season friendlies but are now due to jet off to Germany for friendlies against Bundesliga side Stuttgart and Austrian side Red Bull Salzburg.
Both Busquets and Alba are considered important to Barcelona but have also been rumored to have been asked to take pay cuts due to the club’s tricky financial situation. The difficulty in both cases is that their age has put Barcelona in the tough position of considering letting two players go who are the captain and vice-captain of Spain.
In all likelihood, both will be back for Barcelona this year. However, in order to make Lionel Messi official, Joan Laporta would probably sell off anyone in the world.
