Marquez signs new deal
Barcelona's Mexico defender Rafael Marquez signed a contract extension with the European and Spanish champions on Tuesday, which will keep him with the club until 2010.
He told the club website: "My priority was always Barcelona. I have believed in this project from the very beginning. It was tough at first but the last two years have been excellent."
The buy-out clause on his contract has been set at 100 million euros.
Mexico were knocked out of the World Cup by Argentina 2-1 after extra-time in the last 16 on Saturday.
