The latest statement by Josep Maria Orobitg, the agent of Barcelona defender Martin Montoya, suggests there is a chance the Spaniard will leave Barca.
"If we cannot reach an agreement on a new contract, Montoya will be free to find a new club," Orobitg said, as per TMW (h/t talkSPORT). "There have been no recent contacts with the leaders of Barcelona."
Surely he understands he is the heir apparent to Dani Alves.
Montoya started 11 La Liga games for Barca last season and already has seven this season.
It makes no sense for him to leave Barca unless he is going to a mid-tier club for week in, week out regular football.
Last November, Spanish football writer Guillem Balague revealed that Barca have no intentions of selling Montoya, as per Bleacher Report: "Barcelona do not want to sell Montoya, least of all in January. The team are struggling with injuries, and they view him as the successor to Alves."
