FC Barcelona announce that they have reached an agreement with Jordi Alba to extend his contract until 30 June 2020.
His new buy out clause will be 150 million Euros and the new contract will be signed in the next few days.
Five more years
After three seasons at FC Barcelona, Jordi Alba will continue at the Club until 2020. The 26 year old blaugrana full back has won the League and the Spanish Cup this season, adding to the league title he won in 2012/13 and the Spanish Super Cup from 2013/14.
Since arriving from Valencia, Jordi Alba has become a fixture in the side for all of the coaches he has played under. In his first campaign with Tito Vilanova, Alba played 44 games and scored five goals. The following season with Gerardo ‘Tata’ Martino as coach, injuries played a part in him playing just 26 matches.
This year with Luis Enrique he is back to his best physically and he is showing the quality that led the Club to resign the player who left Barça as a youngster. With the Champions League final still to come, Jordi Alba has played 43 games and scored two goals, playing a key part in Barça’s sixth league and cup double.
