Tello to stay at Barcelona?

Cristian Tello’s agent has apparently negotiated a significant pay-rise for the attacking winger and he will now stay at Barcelona.

The youngster broke into the first team last season but with originally just 12 months left on his contract at the club had been linked with a departure this summer.

Atletico Madrid and Liverpool were understood to be keen admirers of the winger, but their interest may have been hit by Marca’s report today that the player has agreed terms on a new contract at the Camp Nou.

Reportedly, Andoni Zubizarreta has agreed to his agent’s request for a significant pay-rise and, whilst the player will officially remain contracted to the Barcelona B team, he will remain available and included in senior squad plans for 2012-13.
