Barcelona have officially confirmed that 18-year-old La Masia striker Angel Alarcon has signed a new contract with the club until the summer of 2025.

The teenage forward is currently a member of the Juvenil A setup at Barcelona and his deal stood to expire at the end of the ongoing campaign.

Talks over a new contract had been going on for some time now, with the youngster impressing the first-team coaches.

Indeed, senior team manager Xavi Hernandez is said to have been impressed by Alarcon, with the teenage forward training with the first-team squad on several occasions already.

The 18-year-old even made his senior debut for Barcelona in the Copa del Rey clash against AD Ceuta and could see more game-time in the coming weeks, following the departure of Memphis Depay.

As confirmed by the club’s statement, Alarcon has penned a two-year contract, committing his future to the club until 2025. He will be a part of the Barça Atletic team from next season onwards.

But, it would not come as a surprise to see his role in Xavi’s first-team plans grow if his progression continues at a rapid rate.

The statement from Barcelona also states that Angel Alarcon will be protected by a €400 million release clause.
