According to the latest information Antonis Fotsis has agreed with Barcelona to continue his career at the Catalan club.
Fotsis’ priority was to stay at Panathinaikos, the club with which he has won three Euroleague titles, but despite his agent repeatedly knocking Panathinaikos door during the last weeks the club did not seem willing to offer any new contracts, as the current Panathinaikos owners are in the process of selling the team.
Barcelona offered Fotsis the contract he wanted (around 1.5 million euros per season for 2 years, improving their original offer of 1.1m per season) and after the release of Morris he will have guaranteed playing time, as well.
Fotsis who will travel to Barcelona next Tuesday to pass medical tests and sign his contract, unless there are drastic changes in Panathinaikos, will be the first Greek player to play for both Real Madrid and Barcelona.
In the light of this development Zeljko Obradovic will return from Serbia today (Thursday) to have a meeting with the club’s owner and discuss the future of the club. If he manages to talk Fotsis out of his decision remains unknown.
