Cristian Tello extends Barca contract
Barcelona winger Cristian Tello has signed a contract extension until 2018, with the new deal including a €25 million buy-out clause which could rise to €35 million depending on appearances.
Negotiations between Barca and 21-year-old Tello have been ongoing throughout the summer, and on Thursday both parties reached an agreement.
"I am very happy to announce that I have extended my contract with Barca until 2018," Tello wrote on Twitter. "I will continue to give my all for this shirt."

The Spain Under-21 international played 22 league games last season, scoring seven goals and contributing four assists.
The arrival of Neymar means even more competition in the squad, but Tello told a press conference earlier this summer that he was up for that challenge.
"I haven't wanted to even listen to offers from other clubs. All I want is to be a success here," he said.
