Following the 5-1 win in their opening Champions League group stage match against Ferencvaros, Barcelona have announced new contracts for four key first-team players.

As per the club’s official website, Gerard Pique, Marc-Andre Ter Stegen, Clement Lenglet and Frenkie de Jong have all penned new deals.

It’s added that these deals all include ‘temporary salary adjustment’ in a massive move that will help the cash-strapped side save money in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Barcelona report that long-serving defender Pique has signed a new deal until the summer of 2024, however this deal is tied to the centre-back making a certain number of appearances in 2021/22.
