Barcelona centre-half pens new deal to keep him at the Nou Camp until 2015, with a buy-out clause of â‚¬70m
Barcelona defender Andreu FontÃ s has signed a contract extension to keep him at the Nou Camp until 2015.
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 (£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 I’m worth.
“I went through similar situations with BarÃ§a B and I know it’s very difficult. I’m at the best team in the world and playing with the best players in the world and I’m working hard. Little by little, the chances will come. I am living a dream that I hope never ends.”
