The 21-year-old centre-half has been linked with move to a number of Premier League clubs of late, but the Catalan giants announced that he had penned a new deal on Monday and confirmed that the buy-out clause in his contract had been increased to â‚¬70m (Â£61m).
FontÃ s has only made one appearance for Pep Guardiola’s men this season, but the Spanish defender insists he is not concerned by a lack of first-team action and is happy to be patient.
“Now more than ever I have to show what I am worth,” he told Barcelona’s website. “It gives me additional strength to work as hard as I can every day and show what Iâ€™m worth.
“I went through similar situations with BarÃ§a B and I know itâ€™s very difficult. Iâ€™m at the best team in the world and playing with the best players in the world and Iâ€™m working hard. Little by little, the chances will come. I am living a dream that I hope never ends.”
