As reported by Spanish daily ‘Sport’, Jordi Alba was relegated to a less-important role in the team under Luis Enrique last season. The manager’s change of formation, deciding to play three defenders, meant the left-back was banished from the starting lineup.
This derived in a potential exit from the club, tired of playing second fiddle at the Camp Nou. With the World Cup taking place in Russia next year, Jordi Alba received many lucrative offers promising more game time.
Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain were two of the clubs who showed interest. The full-back did not hesitate in rejecting both clubs’ proposals, as he believes there is no better club than Barcelona to continue to develop in his career.
Jordi Alba will hope to make it back into the squad next season, after turning down two serious offers from two of the world’s finest clubs. The left-back is determined to carry on collecting trophies at the Camp Nou.
