Claver dissociates himself from Barça and points to Valencia Basket

The Spanish forward still had a one-year contract but was not in Jasikevicius's plans for next season


It was only a matter of time before Barça announced the separation of Víctor Claver, something that ended up happening today, as it was an open secret that the forward would not continue as Barça. The Spanish player did not enter Jasikevicius's plans for next season and, free from his contract with Barça, points out that he will play for Valencia Basket, his hometown club. The first condition to land in Valencia has already been met, now it is necessary to agree with the Valencian club. At the moment, Claver is concentrating on the national team preparing for the Tokyo Games.

Claver arrived at Barça in 2016 from the Russian Lokomotiv Kuban and throughout his time as a Barça player he has played a total of 279 games. The Spanish forward has lost prominence this season, where an injury at the end of 2020 separated him from the team for several weeks. His return was not as expected, having only a few minutes in Jasikevicius' rotation, until he ended up being, in a systematic way, one of the manager's discards at the end of the season.From the Barça sports management they want to renew the position of forward, where Kalinic, a Valencia player, is the top favorite. He would make the reverse trip to Claver, leaving Valencia and landing in Barcelona, in an operation that may bear fruit in the coming days. Despite them, the Serbian forward has the interest of other clubs on the continent. In addition, Barça's commitment to Sergi Martínez is firm, considering him a player who can perfectly occupy the role that Claver has played this season.
