Barcelona’s teenage midfielder Pedri has just signed a new contract until 2026 which includes a release clause of 1 billion euros, the club announced on Thursday.

Pedri, 18, has quickly developed into one of Barca’s best players little more than a year after joining the club in 2020 from second division side Las Palmas for five million euros.

He made 53 appearances in his debut season, more than any other Barca player, helping the team win the Copa del Rey and lighting up an otherwise poor campaign for the Catalans.

Pedri then played a major role in Spain’s path to the Euro 2020 semifinals, becoming Spain’s youngest player at a major finals.

He was also being chosen in Uefa’s team of the tournament and voted best young player.

Pedri helped Spain to win the silver medal at the Olympic Games and ended the campaign with 74 appearances, more than any player in Europe.

Pedri signed the new deal today with president Joan Laporta before holding a news conference.
