|Samper and Munir extend contracts until 2019|
FC Barcelona B midfielder Sergi Samper has finally signed his contract extension with Barça in a deal that will see him continue at the club until the summer of 2019.
Barça announced on their official website that Samper have signed his contract renewal for 3 years with an option of a fourth. He will be promoted to the first team after spending 15 years in all junior categories of the club where he joined when he was just 6 years old.
It was reported last week that Barça have reached a deal with the 21-year old midfielder and the contract will be signed until 2020, however, the Catalan club decided to make it a 3+1 year contract and have placed a minimum release clause of €50 million on the player.
