Barcelona agrees a new deal with Ansu Fati until 2024 with a £367million release clause.

Ansu Fati has put pen to paper on a new long-term contract at the Spanish side and has been handed the no.22 shirt.

The 17-year-old sensation enjoyed a breakthrough campaign at the Catalan giants last season, scoring eight goals and recording an assist for his side from his 33 appearances in 2019/20.

Now Fati – who broke a 95-year national record earlier this month to become Spain’s youngest ever goalscorer – has signed a new contract until 2024 which includes a mammoth £367million (€400m) release clause.

Fati’s original deal at the LaLiga outfit was due to expire in two years time but the club have tied him down to fresh terms and increased his original £211m release clause by £156m.

The club have also officially unveiled their former no.31 as a member of their senior squad ahead of his 18th birthday next month on October 31.

That could lead to further opportunities for Fati – who had been linked with a sensational move to Manchester United earlier this year – to make up the Barcelona attack alongside the likes of Lionel Messi and Antoine Griezmann.

The winger became the second-youngest player in the club’s history to be handed his full debut during a 5-2 win against Real Betis in August last year aged 16 years and 298 days.
