According to Jijantes (h/t Mundio Deportivo), Real Sociedad midfielder Martin Zubimendi has a release clause set at €60 million in his contract. 

This means that if Barcelona want to secure a deal for the midfielder, they must be prepared to pay that amount, which is a substantial financial commitment. 

However, in order to accommodate such a significant expense, Barcelona would need to undertake major sales of their existing players as well, something that they are already working on.

Deco’s meeting with Zubimendi’s agent

Despite the financial constraints Barcelona continue to face, their sporting director, Deco, recently took a proactive step towards potentially acquiring Zubimendi. 

Deco met with Zubimendi’s agent yesterday to discuss the possibility of the transfer. The motivation behind this meeting seems to stem from the fact that Barcelona’s coach, Xavi, has expressed a strong interest in bringing Zubimendi to the team.

Xavi considers Zubimendi as one of his top targets and an essential addition to the squad, reflecting his vision for strengthening Barcelona’s midfield.

Interestingly enough, he caught the attention of Xavi, who believes he is the ideal candidate to fill the void left by Sergio Busquets at the club. 

Xavi sees him as the perfect replacement for Busquets because of his playing style and potential to excel in the role that Busquets held at Barça.

Recent reports suggest that Deco had an extended meeting with the midfielder’s agent, which lasted around an hour and a half. 

While this interaction hints at possible discussions regarding the player’s future and potential move to Barcelona, the player’s focus is currently on the upcoming game against Barcelona on Monday.

As of today, nothing related to Zubimendi is confirmed as the only way Barcelona can sign him is by paying his release clause, something that remains a big problem for the team.
