LaLiga Two Barcelona players to become new captains after Busquets’ exit, Barcelona have reportedly identified two players for captaincy, with veteran midfielder Sergio Busquets set to leave the Catalan club this summer.
Busquets will leave Barcelona at the end of the season after 18 years at his boyhood club.
His departure will create a huge void on the pitch and also create a vacancy in the club’s leadership group.
The Spaniard is currently Blaugrana’s first captain, with Sergi Roberto, Jordi Alba, and Marc-Andre ter Stegen the next three players in the pecking order.
However, according to Javi Miguel of AS, Barcelona are considering striker Robert Lewandowski and defender Ronald Araujo to be part of the new leadership group.
The report added that Roberto will likely be the new first-choice captain after Busquets’ exit, with Alba being the next in line.
Ter Stegen, who was made the fourth captain following Gerard Pique’s retirement earlier this season, could become the third captain, and either Lewandowski or Araujo could be named the new fourth captain ahead of next season.
