Abidal weighing up Barcelona deal extension

Abidal weighing up Barcelona deal extension

France defender Eric Abidal is weighing up a contract extension offer from Spanish champion Barcelona.
Abidal says he has received offers from other clubs but that he doesn't want to "mislead anyone," with Barcelona his first choice. However, he said that "in respect of the club I have to think about my health first."
Abidal underwent surgery to remove a liver tumor in March but returned to play the close of the season and has shown few lingering effects this season. He lifted the club's fourth European Cup at Wembley after Barcelona beat Manchester United 3-1 in the final.
Abidal has been a regular in Barcelona's lineup since joining from Lyon before the start of the 2007-08 season.
