The Spanish defender Alejandro Balde has signed a new contract with FC Barcelona in La Liga this summer.
According to Football Spain, Balde had been negotiating a new contract with the Catalan club for a couple of weeks and has now signed a five-year contract with the LaLiga champion.
The 19-year-old has cemented his place as first choice in the left-back position with the departure of Jordi Alba from the club at the end of the 2023/24 season.
Balde suffered an ankle injury towards the end of last season, but before the injury he was one of Barcelona’s standout players.
Barcelona have had a productive transfer window with IIkay Gundogan, Iñigo Martínez, Oriol Romeu and Vitor Roque joining the club.
Another youngster, Lamine Yamal, signed his first professional contract with the Blaugrana (Blue and Red) and his contract will run until 2026.
Balde scored one goal in 33 LaLiga games last season. Barcelona topped the league table with 88 points from 38 games.
