The midfielder will renew his contract and will get a first team status, according to 'Sport'
Sergi Samper will be part of the first team next season. This is what the newspaper Sport published today, explaining that the player from the academy, waiting for a new contract, will renew his to leave the reserve team and be a full-time member of the first team. The new contract that will link Samper to Barça will be 4 year long.
However, it is not yet sure he will play next season under Luis Enrique's orders. If the staff thinks that Samper's role will be residual, the player is said to consider a move on loan to a First Division team to gain game time in order to form himself. According to the same source, the negotiations are pending because of a few issues that need to be settled, like the definitive buyout clause and a few economic details to be defined. But the bases of the contract are decided.
This means one of the great promises of the last years in Blaugrana formation will move to the first team.
