The Home of Glory Twitter account made this announcement on Tuesday, while Mundo Deportivo sources say Mirotic's departure is a "very real possibility."

According to BasketNews sources, the two sides have already had a few conversations about solving the current contract, but there's still no agreement in place. Per Mundo Deportivo, it is hoped that these discussions can progress swiftly to reach a satisfactory resolution for all parties involved.

Mirotic's potential departure would have a significant impact on the Barca basketball section, as it faces an anticipated budget cut. Given Mirotic's contract, which amounts to around €10 million for the next year, its termination is considered one of the initial options to be viewed.

The 32-year-old star forward has a contract with the club that runs until 2025.

The club's official stance does not suggest the possibility of Mirotic's departure.

"Nikola Mirotic is an FC Barcelona player, and he has a contract. We hope that together we can win the domestic league title," the official report reads.

In addition to the potential departure of Mirotic, Home of Glory also adds that head coach Sarunas Jasikevicius could be willing to accept a significant salary reduction and sign a new contract.
