Luis Suarez agrees new Barcelona deal to June 2021

15 December 2016 06:08

Luis Suarez has agreed a new deal that will see him remain with Barcelona until June 30, 2021, with a huge buyout clause of 200 million euros inserted.

The former Liverpool striker has been prolific since swapping Anfield for the Nou Camp in a deal reported to be worth £75million two and a half years ago, scoring 97 times in 116 matches in all competitions.

The Uruguayan is also part of the much-feared MSN forward line at Barca as he, Lionel Messi and Neymar have been terrorising defences at home and abroad.

Their combination has reaped two league titles, two Copa del Reys, one Champions League, one European Super Cup, one Super Cup and one Club World Cup trophy.

It is therefore little surprise that Suarez, who completed a five-year deal on signing for the Catalan giants in 2014, is set to commit himself to another long-term deal at the club.

Barcelona said in a statement: "FC Barcelona announces that they have reached an agreement with Luis Suarez to renew his contract until 30 June 2021.

"His buyout clause is set at 200 million euros. The new contract will be signed on Friday 16 December at 13.30."
