Pinto to sign new Barca deal

Barcelona goalkeeper Jose Manuel Pinto is close to signing a one-year contract extension at the club.

The 37-year-old shot-stopper will put pen-to-paper on an extended deal within the next few weeks, which sees him tied to the club until June 2014.

The veteran has been a perennial second-choice for the Blaugrana since his arrival in 2008, playing only 51 League matches.
