Sergi Palencia, the captain of FC Barcelona B, has extended his contract with the club for a further three seasons through to 30 June 2020. Should he become a member of the first team during this period, his buyout clause would double from 25 million euros to 50 million.

President Josep Maria Bartomeu attended the signing today in the company of the head of professional youth football Silvio Elías, the director of professional sports Albert Soler, the sports manager for football Pep Segura and club CEO Òscar Grau.

Palencia has been at the club since U12 level and was a key part of the squad that won promotion to the second division last term.
