As they look to keep the confidence of the team-high in their upcoming matches, La Liga giants Barcelona have confirmed that goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen, defender Clement Lenglet, Gerard Pique, and midfielder Frenkie de Jong have all put pen to paper to sign a new contract with the club.
The La Liga giants confirmed the contract extension deal almost immediately after securing a 5-1 victory against Ferencvaros in the Champions League opener on Tuesday night, with high roller casinos having backed the match with huge odds for the punters.
Spanish defender Pique was shown the red card in the second half of the game against the Hungarian team after making a foul on their striker in the box seeing their opponents reward with a penalty. Despite this, the Spanish defender has always been solid for the club and was rewarded with a contract extension through to 2024.
The 33-year-old defender, who is currently in his 13th season with the club, will be a subject for the fans for a while during this 2020/21 campaign due to his contract, which included a buyout clause of €500 million.
With Ter Stegen’s contract formerly set to expire in the summer of 2022, the Blaugrana were reported to have been working on a new contract deal for the German goalkeeper for several months now.
The 28-year-old goalkeeper, who joined Barcelona from Bundesliga club Borussia Monchengladbach, has now put pen to paper to sign a new contract, which is set to expire in the summer of 2025.
Lenglet has been impressive for Barcelona ever since joining the club from Sevilla during the 2018 summer transfer window, as the 25-year-old quickly adapted to life with the Catalonians appearing in 89 matches since his arrival at Camp Nou.
The 25-year-old defender signed a new deal that is set to end in the summer of 2026 with a buyout release clause of €300 million.
De Jong, who is yet to make a huge impression in his time at the club, arrived at Camp Nou from Eredivisie club Ajax in 2019. But considering he is only 23 years of age the Dutch youngster is still being tagged to become one of the best central midfielders in Europe.
The Dutch international signed a new contract that will see him remain at Camp Nou till 2026 with a buyout clause of €400 million, which had formerly been predicted by several best payout casinos right before the deal was signed.
As Barca’s president, all of these contracts must pass through Josep Bartomeu and rumor has it that this could be one of his final decisions made as to the Camp Nou president.
Due to the pressure, he is currently facing, there is a possibility Bartomeu’s future with the club doesn’t extend as far as a fortnight.
