Barcelona starlet Pedri have reached an agreement with the club on a new long-term contract pending announcement.
The new deal ties the 18-year-old to Blaugrana until 2026 and includes a breathtaking exit clause of 1 billion euros.
Pedri rose to prominence last season and shone on a struggling Barcelona team before playing for Spain at Euro 2020 despite his tender years.
His current contract should expire at the end of the current season, but Barça have made extension their priority and tied the tiny midfielder to a new five-year deal.
According to the journalist Fabrizio Romano, there is an agreement between the club and the player for an extension until June 2026, with the various clauses “agreed and stipulated” and an announcement expected in due course.
Should someone want to take the youngster out of the club without negotiating with Barça, it will cost him 1 billion euros.
