Barcelona have been making waves in the transfer market early on this summer, but just as important to the club is retaining the stars already present.
The latest name to commit his future to the club is defender Adriano Correia, who has signed a four-year deal to stay at Camp Nou until 2017, as confirmed by the official club website.
The 27-year-old played 23 league games this season and was an important part of the team as it built up a fantastic early lead at the top of La Liga, leading to another championship title being secured.
Tying Adriano down to a new long-term contract was an important piece of business on the part of the club and was very much deserved on the part of the player.
Here's why Adriano has become an entirely useful and important part of the playing staff at the Camp Nou.
