The Mirotic soap opera continues without closingalthough on Friday RAC1 reported a rapprochement between the player’s representative and Barcelona to reach an agreement to terminate the contract, which links the MVP of the last ACB final with the Barça club until June 2025 in exchange for 22 million euros gross (11 per year). Barça will have to pay him a large part of that amount, although he tries to save a few million in a friendly agreement and avoid going to trial. Everything that he disburses as compensation will not appear in the budget as a salary mass, so his dismissal is one of the decisions of the culé entity to comply with the financial play that LaLiga (soccer) demands from the club.
In this tug of war between both parties, Mirotic is calm, at least that’s what his representative says, who in an interview on RAC1 explained that every day that passes without understanding Barça pays the player 31,000 euros for his contract (multiplied by 365 days, they are 11.3 million).
Mirotic will not be able to commit to a new team until he is no longer a Barça player, although While that happens, the suitors are many. Before the League final, he was placed with a foot and a half at Armani Milan, then interest from Olympiacos and Panathinaikos, from AS Monaco, from Red Star, has been reported, but the best position now for his hiring, as long as it is dissociates from Barça, it is the Partizan of Belgrade. The best coach in Europe would be waiting for him there, Zeljko Obradovic, with open arms in his attempt to return to the Final Four. And I would join forces with Kevin Punter, a great goal for culé to lead the outside line until the guard opted to renew with the Serbian team. Mirotic and Punter would command a team with the potential to fight again with the best, after a season in which they only lost in the quarterfinal playoff against a Madrid that came back from 0-2 for the first time in Euroleague history.
Some Serbian media have taken the deal between Partizan and Mirotic for granted. Telesportfor his part, explains that Nothing is closed, but the Belgrade club is the best placed, as they also inform AS, to be the next destination for the Montenegrin star. Although first, you know, the agreement with Barcelona and it doesn’t seem so simple.
