FC Barcelona have rewarded Ronaldinho for his superb form this season with an improved contract.
The Brazilian FIFA World Cup winner shone for Barça following his move from Paris Saint-Germain FC, helping them into second place in the Primera División and a place in next season's UEFA Champions League.
Barcelona rate the 24-year-old so highly that they have increased his buy-out clause to a reported €150m and handed him a basic salary of €4.8m-a-year which could double with win bonuses. "Ronaldinho is going to mark a new era at this club," said club president Joan Laporta.
