His buyout clause was set at 50 million Euros
Alongside the announcement of Munir El Haddadi's contract renewal, Barça made official an information that had already filtered Albert Soler, the Sports director: Sergi Samper becomes a first team player.
The midfielder will sign at 1.30 p.m. this afternoon his contract extension until the 30th June 2019 and the incorporation in Luis Enrique's first team. His buyout clause was set at 50 million Euros.
It is yet to see what his role will be in a midfield that already has had the addition of Denis Suárez. Nonetheless, if Sergi Roberto is consolidating as a full-back, the Barcelona-born player could become a substitute for Busquets.
Samper, surely the player with the highest potential in the Masia in recent years, finally gets to the first team after three seasons in Barça B. The midfielder went through all youth categories, since he arrived at FCB School in 2011/12.
