Gerard Pique was informed by Barcelona manager Xavi Hernandez that he would no longer be needed at the club beginning with the next season. The conversation took place after Hernandez spoke with Pique.
Gerard Pique Offered With The Best Solution
According to the report, the supervisor does not ask about Gerard Pique’s skills but has mentioned physical ailments and unprofessional behavior as purposes for the decision to be made. Xavi claimed that Gerard Pique really wasn’t focused on the game due to the numerous businesses and controversies he was involved in.
Pique was allegedly told that the ideal option would be to depart the team in the most honorable possible way, which necessitated renouncing a significant portion of the roughly €40 million which the team owes him. This was reportedly told to Pique by someone who told him that the ideal option would be to quit the club.
Pique is reported to have resisted acknowledging the fact that he would not receive many minutes and to have maintained that he will practice harder than ever, a strategy that entails renouncing his responsibilities outside of football in order to focus on his football career.
According to the article from Diario Sport, Xavi thinks that Jules Kounde, who plays for Sevilla, is the best candidate to step in and play center defense, which is something that the news source has also published. Chelsea is also keen on signing the Frenchman, whose deal is said to be valued at up to €60 million, but it is hoped that Barcelona would be able to bring him in after they have cut their salary bill and are in a financial position to do so.
Even though Andreas Christensen was brought in and Eric Garcia was also included in the team, it is reported that Xavi fantasizes about a combination comprising Kounde and Ronald Araujo playing together.
