Barcelona secure Thiago to new contract

Barcelona have secured Thiago Alcantara to a new contract.

Barca have agreed a two-year contract extension with highly-rated youngster Thiago.

The 20-year-old midfielder, who has been linked with a move away from the Nou Camp this summer, is now tied to the European champions until June 30, 2015 while his new contract has a buy-out clause of 90 million euros.

Thiago last weekend helped Spain win the Under-21 European Championships, scoring a brilliant goal in their 2-0 win over Switzerland in Saturday's final.

Italy-born Thiago is the son of 1994 Brazilian World Cup winner Mazinho.
