FC Barcelona announced on Friday the contract extension of young forward Carles Pérez, on a new three year deal.

New hope Perez extends

Perez was in the last year of his contract but has committed his future to the Camp Nou club through to 2022. The professional contract that he signed just over a year ago included a buy-out clause of 100 million euros, and this has been maintained.

Injuries to fellow attackers Lionel Messi, Luis Suárez and Ousmane Dembélé have led to more opportunities for the 21-year-old this season. He has made five LaLiga appearances and scored his first Barcelona goal in the 5-2 rout of Real Betis.

Barcelona, seeking a third consecutive title under Ernesto Valverde, are sixth in the LaLiga table after a 2-1 win over Villarreal last time out.
