Is Nico Gonzalez Leaving Barcelona? Is Nico From La Masia? – In this piece you will get to known everything about Nico Gonzalez including his possible destination.
Nicolás González Iglesias aka Nico is a Spanish professional footballer who plays as midfielder for Barcelona in La Liga. He was born on January 3, 2002 in A Corunna, Galicia. Nico started football journey at the age of seven when he joined local club Montanero in 2009.
Is Nico From La Masia?
Nico at age 17 made his senior debut for Barcelona team B (La Masia) on 19 May 2019 coming on as a late substitute for Kike Saverio in a 2-1 Segunda Division B away loss against Castellon.
Nico’s contract was extended until 2024 on May 12, 2021, with a €500 million buyout clause. Following a pre-season appearance in the first team, he made his first team – and La Liga – debut on 15 August, replacing Sergio Busquets in the first game of the 2021-22 La Liga season, a 4-2 win against Real Sociedad.
Nico scored his first professional goal on December 12, 2021, in a 2-2 away draw against Osasuna, and was later loaned to Valencia in 2022 after renewing his contract with Barcelona until 2026.
Is Nico leaving Barcelona?
Nico was not called up to the senior team during the team’s preseason tour in the United States in July 2023, after Xavi Hernández informed him that his game time would be limited throughout the season.
This encouraged many clubs, including Portuguese powerhouse, Porto, to make a bid for Nico, who was surplus to requirements at Barcelona.
One could argue that the Barcelona team is in deficits and has numerous midfielders in the squad that are as good as or better than Nico. Gundogan was one of the addition to the midfielders after being signed from Manchester City to bolster midfield for the next season.
However, Nico’s departure from Barcelona is in the hands of the club’s management, but it would be great if they could loan him to another club to develop his potentials while he is still young and will be brought back to the club in the near future.
