Claims by El Mundo Deportivo, a Spanish daily, has alleged that Darijo Srna is yet to make up his mind on whether to leave Donjeck and move on to Barcelona or continue with his current club.
The reason for this is that at Barcelona, Srna would be making a lot less money, than he is currently making at Donjeck.
However, Srna is yet to say no because this could be his last chance to feature for a top La Liga team like Barcelona before he retires from active football.
The 34 year old is one of the top names on the Catalonia club list as Luis Enrique hopes to find an experienced right winger to boost competition within the team.
Another reason is that Enrique wants to be able to let loose Alex Vidal, who was unable to find his place in Camp Nou.
However, the offer sent by Barcelona to the former captain of the Croatian national football team has not been quite generous, thus creating a lot of doubts for the defender.
“He has still not decided whether to accept the offer or not. On one hand the numbers are much smaller than what he makes in Shakhtar, but on the other it is a chance to wear the Barcelona jersey and he knows this may be his last chance in his career,” the daily wrote.
Although the final decision is yet to be taken, Srna remains in regular contact with Roberto Fernandez, Barcelona’s sports director. While he is aware of how great it would be for him to play with top players such as Messi, Suarez and Neymar, he however has a legendary status in Ukraine, and an excellent salary as well.
Whatever his decision is going to be in the end, he has about a month to take a decision on the matter.
