Barcelona have been handed a huge boost as starlet Riqui Puig looks set to renew with the club.

Tottenham have been linked with a move for the 18-year-old who is out of contract this summer, and manager Mauricio Pochettino was said to be in love with his game.

However, the teenager has taken to Twitter with a post which suggests his future is at the Camp Nou.

The tweet translates as: “Thank you culers for the trust and support. I’m very happy to continue with the best club in the world and learn from the best. Long live Barca.”

Sport’s Albert Roge is reporting that new Barcelona B coach Garcia Pimienta played a big role in his decision to renew.

It’s great news for Barca as Puig is one of the club’s most promising youngsters and big things are expected of the talented teen.
