Jordi Alba signs new Barcelona contract

Jordi Alba signs new Barcelona contract

Jordi Alba has agreed a new deal with Barcelona, according to a report from Cadena Ser.

The report claims that a new deal has been agreed for terms which will see him leave in 2024.

Alba’s current deal at the Camp Nou expires in June 2020, but agent, Vicente Fores has claimed the former Valencia man has been waiting since 2016 for fresh terms.

The likes of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Gerard Pique have all since signed new deals, whilst the Catalan club also issued Samuel Umtiti with fresh and improved terms last summer.

Alba, who last signed a contract with Barca in 2015 – was in superb form last season, having helped his side to a La Liga and Copa del Rey double and he has continued in the same vein so far this season.

Reports of an exit have been present in Spanish media – with Juventus having been linked prior to the winter break in La Liga.

Claims in Mundo Deportivo last week did however claim that a deal until 2023 has been offered and that Alba is keen to tie down the deal, sooner rather than later.

And they say, included in the new deal could be an increase to his minimum release clause, which is set at 150m euros presently.
