Carles Puyol is leaving Barcelona this summer.
The long-time captain, who will turn 36 in April, made the announcement at a Tuesday press conference and also revealed he would make a decision about his future on June 30, as per the club’s official website.
“I don’t know what I’ll do after June 30, but what I am sure of is that when the season ends I’m going to need some rest,” he said, adding, “After that, we’ll see what happens.”
Already a handful of clubs—both in Europe and North America—have made initial inquiries as to Puyol’s signature, and the defender, who earns €10 million per season according to Marca, will be available as a free agent after agreeing to cancel the final two years of his current pact at Camp Nou.
