Two-year extension offer for Puyol

Spanish news agency EFE claims that Barcelona has offered Barcelona central defender and Spanish international Carles Puyol (31), whose current contract expires in 2010, a contract extension for two years, until 2012.

Barcelona would have informed Puyol's agent Ramón Sostres about the club's intention during a meeting last Thursday. A Barcelona spokesperson told the news agency that the negotaiatins are well-advanced but that there's no deal yet.

Catalan sports paper Sport claims that Barcelona wants to keep the same fixed salary but that the personal and team incentives could be higher. The first meeting would have been extremely positive and an agreement could be found soon.

Catalan sports paper El Mundo Deportivo claims that it was just a first contact and that Puyol and his agent will now analyze the proposal. Barcelona would offer the Catalan defender the same salary as he is receiving now. If Puyol accepts the offer, a deal can be closed soon, although the agreement will in any case not be made public before Puyol returns from the Confederations Cup in South Africa.

Puyol is the heart of the Defense still. Puyol has saved Barca's rear end on so many occasions this season while players like Alves and Pique take all the credit. Pique has been wonderful but all his mistakes have been completely covered up by Puyol and no one takes notice.
