Jordi Alba’s agent has said the Barcelona left-back is still waiting on a call from the Catalan club to renew his contract.
Alba’s deal expires in 2020 and it’s been more than a year since Barça told him they would work on new terms.
“Raul Sanllehi was still at the club when they told us not to worry, that they were going to call us to renew,” Vicente Fores told SPORT.
“But we are still waiting. It’s been a year and a half now. We don’t understand anything, maybe it’s normal for Barça or maybe they’re not happy with the performances of a player included in FIFA’s XI and who is the defender with the most assists in European football.”
What’s certain is that his agents are not happy. Alba had a brilliant season, scoring goals, creating goals and filling a gap on the left which was created by Neymar’s departure.
“There are two years left [on the deal] and we will see what’s going on, but we’re relaxed about it,” Fores added.
Alba, meanwhile, is keeping out of things. He is with the Spain squad in Madrid preparing for next month’s World Cup in Russia.
