Alejandro Balde, Barça’s 18-year-old left-back, took advantage of his vacation in the Dominican Republic to visit the country’s Barca Academy, based in Santo Domingo. The Barça youth player, whose father is Guinean and mother is Dominican, shared his experiences with the children.
The image of involvement with the young Barcelona players comes at a time when Balde is sounding for Chelsea. According to MD, the London club has asked Barça about his contractual situation and has contacted his agent, Jorge Mendes, to show their interest in acquiring his services.
He has a contract with Barça until 2024, with a termination clause of 500 million. The player has two more years on his contract but, at 18, wants to play regularly after a season without opportunities in the first team. Therefore, he has already told Barça that if they do not count on him for the first team, he prefers that they provide him with a way out.
