Barcelona midfielder Nico Gonzalez signs new contract

Barcelona midfielder Nico Gonzalez has signed a new contract at the club until 2024.

The deal including a buyout clause of €500m.

The 19-year-old is viewed by many inside the club as the future successor to Sergio Busquets in the deep-lying playmaker role, and he will be one of the B team players that spends pre-season with the first team this summer.

Nico plays an important role in Francesc Javier Garcia Pimienta's system with the B team, who he has played 23 games for this season and provided two assists.

Ronald Koeman has watched Nico in training on a few occasions and highlighted his impressive quality, although he is yet to call him up for any first-team matches.
