[2008] Renewal as birthday present for Bojan

this post was published exactly one year ago:

Barcelona forward and Spanish youth international Bojan Krkic celebrates today his 18th birthday, which means he can now sign another contract that will link him longer with the club.

His current contract expires next summer and it couldn't be renewed until today. All media agree that Bojan will sign in the coming days a new five-year contract including a significant salary rise and an 80 million euro° buyout clause (read more here).

Since Barcelona president Joan Laporta and some other officials like Barcelona sports director Txiki Begiristain are since yesterday in Monaco to assist the draw for the Champions League group stage this evening, the contract won't be signed today.

Catalan sports paper El Mundo Deportivo, who claims that Bojan rejected several offers this summer, says that a date will be set once Laporta returns from Monaco tomorrow. Catalan sports paper Sport thinks the signature and the official announcement could well take place tomorrow.

Great news! Some might consider the renewal contract a bit excessive but considering that Bojan should only continue to improve with time and experience the contract could be looked at like a bargain in a couple of years time.

What irks me is seeing Bojan tagged as "overrated" at various other forums and web sites. Considering what he was able to do at 17 for the first team last season I find that statement baffling. We have to remind ourselves that he is still a teenager playing against grown men.

His biggest weakness right now may be just that, that he is not physically strong and get's bumped off the ball easily. But he is only going to naturally get stronger with age. That happens to everyone.

And if you think he's good now just imagine how much stronger physically and mentally he'll be with time and experience. I have no doubt that he could become Spain's next generation striker on the National Team following in the footsteps of Villa and Torres.
