LIGA - Barcelona to extend contract of teen sensation Pedri
Barcelona are set to offer teenage star Pedri a new contract to keep him at the Nou Camp, according to Mundo Deportivo.
The 18-year-old midfielder - who signed from Las Palmas last summer and was named on the 30-man shortlist for the Ballon d'Or - has quickly emerged as a key man for the Catalans and reports suggest he could sign a deal until 2026.
Barcelona CEO Ferran Reverter has insisted that contract renewals for Ansu Fati and Pedri are "on the right track", while insisting that the Catalans have money to spend in January if required.
Reverter said: "If necessary, we have more than €20 million to spend in January. The renewals of Ansu and Pedri are also on the right track."
Pedri’s contract expires at Camp Nou in June 2022 but with an extension option of 2 years, it looks like he is in for a lengthy stay.
