Enterprise Television- Gerald Pique Extends Barcelona Deal

Barcelona were given a fresh boost on Thursday when key defender Gerard Pique signed a contract extension until 2022.

Having recently lost Brazilian superstar Neymar in an aggressive contract buy out by Paris Saint-Germain, Barcelona have put a 500 million euros ($611 million) buy out clause in Pique’s new contract.

The 30-year-old player joined Barcelona from Manchester United in 2008 and has proved his undisputed talent and steady presence as centre-back with the Catalans winning three Champions Leagues and six Spanish Liga titles during his tenure.

Gerald Pique was part of the Spain side that won the 2010 World Cup and the 2012 European Championships.

Barcelona currently top the Spanish League with a nine points lead over Atletico Madrid, but are an impressive 19 points clear of fourth placed arch-rivals Real Madrid.
