“He doesn’t want to leave Barca and we want him to stay. In the next few days we’ll confirm his renewal for five seasons. There have been reports many clubs were interested in him and that’s normal, but he wants to stay and we want him to stay,” Bartomeu said, Mundo Deportivo reports.

“We’re tying up the loose ends and we’ll announce it in the coming days. The lawyers are looking at everything because we want this to be a long-term contract, so we have to act with great care.”
