There is also a clause in place to extend the contract for a third year.

The Spain international, who had been linked with Liverpool and Man United, extended his Barca stay until June 30, 2019, with a buy-out clause of 150million euros.

Barca say the 27-year-old will sign his new contract in the coming days.

A youth product of Barca, Pedro broke into the first team in 2008 under then coach Pep Guardiola and was a member of the squad that famously won all six trophies available to the club in 2009.

The Tenerife-born forward has scored 11 goals in 48 appearances for Barca in all competitions this season.

Barca have won the Primera Division title and the Copa del Rey trophy and have the chance to clinch the treble this weekend when they face Juventus in the Champions League final on Saturday in Berlin.

A Barca statement read: "FC Barcelona announces that an agreement has been reached with Pedro Rodriguez to renew his contract until June 30, 2019.

"His current deal expires on June 30, 2016. His buy-out clause remains at 150 million euros."

Barcelona will send a scout to the FA Cup final next weekend as they ponder over a £50m bid for Aaron Ramsey, according to reports.

It's thought the newly crowned La Liga champions watched Ramsey during last weekend's clash between Man United and the Gunners at Old Trafford.

The Sun claim that Welsh international Ramsey could become Barcelona's ninth signing from Arsenal in 15 years, despite the club being placed under a transfer embargo which they are confident will be lifted.
