FC Barcelona is working hard on renewing Alexia Putellas’s deal to get the FIFA World Cup winner to stay in Catalonia longer.
The two-time Ballon d’Or winner has been at Barça since 2012, and won everything there. Despite a big injury layoff, she returned in time to help Spain win the women’s World Cup.
Barcelona’s women’s section has a lot of work to do as Markel Zubizarreta leaves as sporting director. Their priority, however, is getting Alexia to stay longer.
The good news is there is a lot of optimism regarding her contract. It’s understood that Barcelona are well on their way to agreeing a new deal with her.
There are still, however, many other deals to be worked on.
