This Thursday at midday, Barça B goalkeeper Oier Olazábal (22) has signed his contract renewal with FC Barcelona through 2015. The agreement, announced last week, includes a buyout clause of 12 million euros that will rise to 30 million once Oier makes the first team. The keeper expressed his satisfaction with the new deal: “They have invested in me and I am very happy. It’s in merit of the five years I have spent here, in which there have been good and bad moments. It is a reward.”
Besides Oier and his agent, the contract renewal was attended by vice-president of sport Josep Maria Bartomeu, director Jordi Mestre, and sporting director Andoni Zubizarreta.
Speaking to Barça TV and the Club’s official site after the signing, the Basque discussed his aspirations: “My goal is to reach the first team, to be a part of the group and to compete.” Oier also spoke of the gratitude he has for the goalkeeping coaches who have helped him for the past five years at the Club.
