Barcelona have announced some big Ansu Fati-related news following rumours of a feud between the African-born teenager's representatives and the club over contract negotiations.
On Wednesday evening, the Catalan giants confirmed that the 18-year-old has agreed a new six-year deal, which will keep him at the club until 2027.
Included in the Spain international's contract is a release clause of €1 billion (R16.8 billion), with the same clause recently being placed in Pedri's new deal with the Blaugrana.
Fati has contributed to three goals in five appearances across all competitions for Barcelona so far this season since returning from an injury that forced him to be sidelined for nine months.
What was the contract dispute about?
Although Fati's deal at Barcelona was set to expire in 2022, the club's board believed they had the option to unilaterally extend his stay until 2024.
It was argued by the player's agent, though, that the extension clause was not valid given it was signed by Fati when he was under the age of 18 – in Spain, an U18 player is not allowed to sign a contract of longer than two years.
