The future of Sergio Busquets is still in the dark.
The 34-year-old midfielder's contract will expire at the end of the season, and while Xavi hopes to extend his contract, the captain may leave, according to reports.
David Beckham's Inter Miami shines, and the one who continues to press is Al-Nasser, in which Cristiano Ronaldo plays.
According to "Mundo Deportivo", the Saudi luxury team submitted to Busquets a contract of 18 million euros per season, net, for two years.
"Busquets is waiting to see if he will receive an offer from Barcelona, because he knows Xavi wants him to continue," it said.
A few days ago, the professional manager Matteo Almani was asked about this and said: "Sergio knows how much he is valued, he is a legend in this club. We will wait and see what happens. He and Xavi will make a decision together, and whatever happens - we will support them both."
The one who improves his status at the club is Frankie de Jong, who was already a foot and a half outside of Barcelona in the summer, and has now become an important player in Xavi's rotation.
According to reports in Spain, the coach talks to the Dutch midfielder every day, and considers him one of the most important players in the team.
"He is an extraordinary talent who can become one of the best midfielders in the world," said the coach.
"He makes a difference and I'm happy with him."

And what about the young stars?
According to "Sport", "the noise around Enso Fati has started, it's the perfect storm - he's not getting enough minutes, and Barcelona will have to make a significant sale in the summer."
Manchester United has already been mentioned in this context, and "everything will be in the hands of the player. There is no doubt that an offer of 100 million euros will be interesting for all involved, and maybe Barcelona will use it to make several more transfers. We will see soon."
Jorge Mendes, Fati's agent, is also Alejandro Balda's agent.
In the coming days he will meet with the leaders of Barcelona, in an attempt to extend the contract of the young defender.
Balde himself wants to stay in Barcelona, and the conclusion should be relatively simple.
Unlike Pati, in the case of the defender, all parties wish to continue the contract.
