Jordi Alba has signed a new long-term contract at Barcelona, keeping him at Camp Nou until 2024, the Spanish champions have confirmed.
Alba has been in inspired form for Barca this term, providing 14 assists in all competitions and scoring two goals, with Ernesto Valverde’s side currently seven points clear of second-place Atletico Madrid in La Liga.
With his previous deal expiring at the end of the season, 29-year-old was recently linked with a switch to Manchester United and Juventus.
But after the club tied coach Ernesto Valverde down to a new deal last week, they have rewarded the full-back’s form with a new five-year deal, containing a €500 million (£428m/$569m) buyout clause.
“Barcelona and Jordi Alba have reached an agreement to renew his contract for the next five seasons, until June 30, 2024. The buyout clause is set at €500M,” a statement read.
