FC Barcelona has announced that Andreu Fontàs has signed a new contract on Monday that binds him to the club until the 2014-2015 season. The buy-out clause has been set at 70 million euros.
Centre back Andreu Fontàs, who already had a contract until 2012, has
extended it today in the club offices to four seasons through to 2014/15 as a first team member,
while the buy-out clause has been increased from 30 to 70 million euros. “I am very, very
happy” he told Barça TV and fcbarcelona.cat. “And rightly so after renewing for the
Barça first team .”
Showing his worth
The player believes that this extension shows that the club trusts in him and now “more than ever I have to show what I am worth. It gives me additional strength to work as hard as I can every day and show what I’m worth”.
Easy about role
Fontàs has only played in one game, the 2-2 draw at Anoeta, this season, but is not too worried. “I’m easy. I went through similar situations with Barça B and I know it’s very difficult. I’m at the best team in the world and playing with the best players in the world and I’m working hard. Little by little, the chances will come. I am living a dream that I hope never ends”.
