Barcelona defender Gerard Pique has agreed to a contract extension with the Catalan club that runs through to 2022.
Barca has also armed the new contract to include a 500m euro (£440m) buyout clause after losing Brazilian superstar Neymar in an aggressive contract buyout by Paris Saint-Germain last summer.
“The club and the player have agreed terms on a new deal through to June 30, 2022. We will announce when the official signing will take place in a couple of days,” FC Barcelona announced in a statement on their website.
Barcelona-born Pique was part of the club’s youth system between 1997 and 2004 before four seasons at Old Trafford brought just 23 appearances in all competitions.
However, Pique, 30, has since played 422 games for the Catalan club after rejoining from Manchester United in 2008, increasingly steady presence as centre-back with the Catalans winning three Champions Leagues and six Spanish Liga titles during his tenure.
The club, who secured the Copa del Rey trophy last season but missed out on the La Liga trophy, is also currently top the Spanish top-flight with a nine-point lead over Atletico Madrid.
The well-spoken Spanish International has also gathered more than 20 honours with the club, including six La Liga titles and three Champions Leagues, and was also part of the Spain side that won the 2010 World Cup and Euro 2012.
