Barcelona's Jordi Alba set to sign new mega long-term contract

Barcelona defender Jordi Alba plans to sign a new four-year contract at the Camp Nou, to remain with the club until 2023.

The defender has been in Barca starting line-up since his switch from Valencia back in 2012 and has managed to win four La Liga titles and the Champions League.

The 29-year-old is widely regarded as one of the best left-backs in European football and he has once again been at the top of his game for Barca this term, contributing a goal and four assists in 17 La Liga appearances.

According to report, the Spanish champions are now set to reward Alba after over 200 games of service with a new mega long-term contract worth €9 million per year, after negotiations with the defender were accelerated.

Alba told media after Barcelona’s 2-0 home win against Celta Vigo on Saturday:

“It doesn’t just depend on me, as it also depends on the club.

“When I signed for Barcelona, it wasn’t for money. I came here for the feeling and because it is my home.

“In the end, it’s not enough to say that I’m a great player, as actions also matter.”
