Barcelona have announced that winger Pedro Rodriguez has renewed his contract at the club, keeping him at the Nou Camp until the summer of 2019.
The Club’s official website announced the Spaniard’s new four-year-extension whilst keeping his release clause at €150m.
Pedro’s old deal was set to expire this July, but his new deal will be signed in the next few days.
Teams around Europe were keeping tabs on Pedro, knowing his old deal was about to expire. However, the Catalans have reacted quickly to fend off any interest in their star.
The 27-year-old made 43 appearances under Luis Enrique in the campaign just gone, scoring 11 times and grabbing eight assists.
Barcelona are preparing themselves for the UEFA Champions League final in Berlin on Saturday, coming up against recently crowned Serie A champions, Juventus.
Champions vs. Champions in Europe’s biggest competition – what could be better.
