Rakitic Renews Barcelona Contract

Football club Barcelona confirmed that they have reached an agreement with Ivan Rakitic to extend the midfielder's contract until 30 June 2021.

Rakitic's contract was due to expire in 2019, but his improved bumper deal will see him remain at Camp Nou until 2021.

However, the Croatian worldwide has put the recent speculation surrounding his future to bed by agreeing a new deal with Barcelona.

The Croatia worldwide also has a new release clause of €125 million inserted in the deal amid rumoured interest from Manchester City. The buyout clause will be 125 million euros.

Rakitic joined Barcelona from Sevilla in 2014 and has gone on to score 17 goals in 89 games for the Catalonia giants.

Luis Enrique started him in the second leg Champions League round of 16 tie against Paris Saint-Germain at Camp Nou.

But now he is staying, just a day after he compared Barcelona's historic Champions League win against PSG to the New England Patriots' Superbowl triumph earlier this year over the Atlanta Falcons.
