Barcelona have confirmed that midfielder Carles Alena has signed his new three-year contract extension and that it contains a release clause of €75 million.

The club confirmed they had agreed the extension with Alena all the way back in June, but they have actually managed to get him to pen to paper now and it’s all official.

“FC Barcelona and midfielder Carles Aleñá came to an agreement Tuesday whereby the 19-year-old will extend his deal with the club for a further three years.

“The deal also calls for a two-year club option should Aleñá, who currently plays for the reserves, end up making the first team. The buyout clause has been set at €75m.

Contract extensions are the talk of Barcelona at the moment with Lionel Messi’s all agreed, apparently, although unlike Alena, the club have yet to actually get him to sign the thing.

Andres Iniesta’s is also agreed “in principle” according to Josep Maria Bartomeu, or not at all, according to the player himself.
