It is in the best interests of FC Barcelona to secure their future beforehand. The Catalan giants do not have the luxury of waiting and then getting to decide what their spontaneous plans will be. Instead, Barcelona need to act timely and accordingly to ensure their sustainability.

Thus, one of their major objectives becomes the continuity of their integral players. The kind of players that Barcelona have no intentions of letting go, and must thus retain their services. One of those players just so happens to be 17-year-old Pau Cubarsi, who has exploded for the Catalan giants this season.

However, his continuity for the Blaugranes is still not a guarantee in the long term. For this reason, as Fabrizio Romano has confirmed and SPORT has highlighted, Barça have already sent their proposal to the entourage of the player. Previously, there was no confirmation about when such a proposal would be sent, but it has now been confirmed.

This specific proposal would be a long-term agreement and several reports suggest it could make Cubarsi stay at Barcelona until the year 2030 or even 2031. Moreover, as Romano has highlighted, it would include a €1 billion release clause, mirroring the clauses in the contracts of other key Barcelona players.

It would also see Cubarsi’s salary increased, and would be reflective of the great performances he has had. The young academy product has essentially taken Barcelona on his back and become a mainstay in the team already. Despite his age, his importance to Xavi’s team is crucial.

At the moment, Barcelona await his reply to the proposal they have sent. It will undoubtedly take some time to come to a conclusive agreement, but Romano states that Barcelona hope to reach an agreement before the end of the season and are confident that they will get it done.

For now, Cubarsi continues to focus on and help Barcelona remain competitive this season. He seems to be improving himself with every passing game, while also simultaneously being praised by all those who witness him playing. Now also a representative for the Spanish National team, the Barcelona defender is ascending rapidly.
