Barcelona star Luis Suarez is set to sign a 6-year contract extension with the club according to president Josep Bartomeu.

Two other Barcelona stars Javier Mascherano and Ivan Rakitic have also signed new deals with the club and five-time Ballon d’Or Lionel Messi is expected to be the next in line.

“Suarez is going to renew [his contract] now. It’s already done,” Bartomeu told Radio Vision. “There are only a few small details outstanding. In the coming days or weeks we will announce it.”

“Maybe, why not, as a big Christmas present. Not for Luis, who already knows that he is going to continue here, but for football fans.”suarez barca

“For them he is a very important character who forms part of this spectacular front three that we have at the club.”

Suarez signed for Barcelona in 2014 for a whooping £65 million fee and has become an integral part of the team.

“We want [his contract] to be even longer, but for the moment he will sign until 2022. You have to adapt to the rules, which have a maximum contract length.”

“We want Luis Suarez to be at this club for many years. And when he retires he will always be welcome at Barcelona.”
