Although he was no longer young, Eric Abidal apparently still needed by Barcelona. Proven, 32-year-old defender is going to extend its contact with Barca management.
This was shared by Abidal, who claimed to have met the club's management to discuss a contract extension. "My agent has met Barcelona today and finished," he admits.
Abidal can still claim to be happy and play with the defending Barcelona Xavi Hernandez et al. "I'm very happy. I have told family and friends will continue to adventure with Barcelona," added Abidal.
French defender is staying signed a two-year contract extension that has been given Barca. The contract also contained an additional one-year optional for Abidal.
