Barcelona have announced that youth prospect Juan Miranda has committed his future to the Catalan giants, signing a contract extension that will keep him at the club until 2021.
The 18-year-old was a part of the Barcelona youth side that lifted the Uefa Youth League during the 2017/18 season and also broke into the Barcelona B side, making seven appearances in La Liga 2. Barcelona clearly saw enough in the youngster to keep him at the Nou Camp and have awarded him with him with a significant contract extension.

The most interesting part of the contract is the release clause that has been placed on the youngster. Barcelona have put a staggering $200m clause in the contract, which all but secures his future at the club for the foreseeable future.
The news of Miranda's contract extension comes after Barcelona have tied down a number of other youth prospects over the past few weeks.
