Suarez signs contract extension with Barcelona until 2021

17 December 2016, 08:06

Barcelona — Barcelona striker Luis Suarez has signed a contract extension with the Catalan club until June 2021.

Friday's signing came a day after the new deal — which carries a buyout clause of 200 million euros (about $210 million) — was announced by Barcelona.

Suarez's previous contract with the Spanish club was due to expire in 2019.

Since transferring from Liverpool in 2014, Suarez has scored 97 goals in 116 matches, helping Barcelona win eight titles, including the 2015 Champions League.

The Spanish powerhouse recently also extended the contract of Brazilian forward Neymar until 2021, and now it will try to seal a deal with Lionel Messi to keep together its formidable attacking trio.
