Double departure alert: Barcelona lose Alemany, Sporting Director next in line?

Significant changes are happening at FC Barcelona as the club moves towards the future. The Director of Football, Mateu Alemany, has already been confirmed to be leaving the club at the end of the season, and he could be followed by other important names.

One such person who is likely to leave the club after this season is the club’s Sporting Director, Jordi Cruyff. According to a recent report from Mundo Deportivo, Jordi Cruyff was reflecting on whether to stay with the club or part ways since the departure of Alemany was confirmed. Latest reports now indicate that he is closer to leaving the club than staying.

Cruyff’s contract with FC Barcelona runs up to September of this year, and he will make a decision on whether he wants to renew with the Catalan club this month. The son of one of FC Barcelona’s greatest legends, Johann Cruyff, Jordi has been a part of the club since shortly after Joan Laporta’s return to power in 2021.

Since then, he has been an important component in decision-making at the club, along with Mateu Alemany and Xavi, but his time at the club could be fast approaching its end. However, his departure from the club is not finalized yet, and some factors can elongate his stay with the club.

For instance, Antonio Cordon has been rumored to be one of the candidates being seen as likely to replace Alemany, and he enjoys a close relationship with Cruyff. His appointment at the club can well change Cruyff’s mind to stay at the club.

However, the association of Cordon with a role at Barcelona has lost steam in recent days, and other candidates like Deco and Victor Baia are also running for the position of Director of Football at the club.

Thus, a number of factors will determine Cruyff’s continuity at the club, but currently, it looks increasingly likely that his future lies away from the Catalan club.
