And Spanish media TV3 says the announcement from the club is ‘imminent’.
Here are some contract deals.
The versatile midfielder would see a significant increase in his wages to €10 million gross a year. He would leap to become one of the club’s best earners.
The new deal would be until June 2023.
Barcelona have inserted a buyout clause of €300million rather than the €400million earlier reported.
