Barcelona’s Rising Star Pau Cubarsi Extends Contract Until 2027

Barcelona‘s promising central defender Pau Cubarsi has inked a contract extension that will keep him at the Catalan club until 2027.

Pau Cubarsi Extends Contract with first-team Status

At just 17 years of age, Cubarsi has made significant strides in his debut season with Barcelona. Thus, earning 20 appearances for the first team after progressing through the renowned La Masia youth system.

Having already represented Spain twice at the international level Cubarsi’s talent has not gone unnoticed. His new contract includes first-team status and extends his previous deal by one year.

Previously bound by an academy contract with a €10 million release clause Cubarsi’s extension maintains this provision. However, Spanish law restricts players under 18 from signing contracts beyond a certain duration. Cubarsi, who turns 18 in January 2025, falls under this regulation.

Reports indicate that Cubarsi’s contract mirrors that of fellow prodigy Lamine Yamal, who, at 16, secured a three-year deal with a staggering €1 billion release clause last October.

What the Club Statement Say?

Here’s the club’s official statement:

“FC Barcelona and Pau Cubarsí have reached an agreement to extend the centre back’s contract with the club through to 30 June 2027. The player’s buyout clause has been set at 500 million euros.”

“The defender put pen to paper this Thursday morning at an event also attended by FC Barcelona president Joan Laporta; first vice-president Rafa Yuste; the director responsible for youth football, Joan Soler; and sporting director Anderson Luis de Souza “Deco”.

Born in Catalonia and a devoted Barcelona fan, Cubarsi’s allegiance to the club played a pivotal role in his decision to extend his stay.

Despite interest from Manchester City, the allure of Barcelona’s renowned youth development system and the prospect of a clear path to the first team swayed Cubarsi to commit his future to his boyhood club.
