Athletic Club Negotiating Contract Renewal With Ander Capa
Ander Capa has surpassed all expectations since moving to Athletic two years ago and has quickly established himself as one of Europe’s top right-backs. The 27-year-old combines power and pace with excellent defending while also being a constant threat to score goals and create chances going forward. Playing for Athletic has always been Capa’s dream and the club is looking to ensure his future at San Mamés.
Although Capa’s current contract doesn’t expire until 2022, his wages and €50 million release clause do not reflect his role in the team. According to a report from Javier Ortiz De Lazcano of El Correo, Athletic have already begun negotiating a renewal with Capa’s representatives. The new deal will add more years to the player’s contract while also significantly raising his wages and clause.
Unsurprisingly, Capa has already informed the club that his desire is to continue at Athletic and negotiations are expected to move rather quickly. He isn’t the only player in line for a new contract either. Athletic have also opened talks with Unai Simón to improve his deal as well with the Basque giants eager to reward top players with better wages and ensure that stars remain at the club for years to come.
