Barcelona binds Gerard Piqué to the end of June 2022. That has Barça announced on Thursday. The 30-jariger defender plays since 2008 continuously in the first team of the Catalan club.
Piqué got his youth at Barça, but withdrew in 2005 to Manchester United. Meanwhile with a uitleenbeurt to Real Zaragoza in the legs, he returned in 2008 to return to Barcelona. Piqué won in Camp Nou less than 25 prizes, including three times in the Champions League (2009, 2011 and 2015) and six league titles. He also made part of the national team of Spain in 2010 and the world CHAMPIONSHIPS won and two years later triumphed at the european CHAMPIONSHIPS.
The new commitment of Piqué contains a limited lump sum of 500 million euro. He follows the example of Andrés Iniesta and Lionel Messi, two other icons of Barcelona, which last year already have their contract renewed.
