Athletic Bilbao is close to ensuring the continuity of Alex Berenguer, one of its most notable players, with the bases of the contract already agreed and only details related to its variables pending to be finalized. The proposed renewal would extend Berenguer's bond with the club for three seasons additional, a duration that is commonly accepted in the international football field.

Stuck in the variable part

Berenguer, whose adaptation and performance at Athletic have been notable, has attracted the interest of several clubs in both La Liga and foreign leagues, including the Premier League and the Italian championship. However, the final decision could be influenced by his personal life, since his wife, who is deeply integrated and happy in Bilbao, is a fervent supporter of the team. This could be a decisive factor for Berenguer to choose to continue his career in Bilbao, rejecting offers from other clubs seeking to acquire his services.

This move by Athletic reflects its strategy of maintaining its key players, especially in the face of interest from teams from more prominent leagues, thus ensuring the stability of the team and reinforcing its competition both in the national league and in European competitions. Berenguer's continuity would be positive news for the club and his fans, further consolidating the bond between the player and the city that has welcomed him so warmly.
