Javier Saviola has admitted that he does not expect to stay at Barcelona next season.
The Argentinian striker becomes a free agent at the end of the season and there has been no indication from the club that he will be offered a new deall.
“I think it will be difficult for me to continue with Barcelona,” said Saviola.
“My first option is to stay, but the club still hasn’t made an offer to me.
“If the situation does not change it is normal that I will leave the club.”
Barcelona’s sporting director Txiki Beguiristain also admitted that renegotiating Saviola’s contract was not a priority for the club.
“It is still too soon to speak about the subject of Saviola,” said Beguiristain.
“It is still not a priority for us.”
