Madrid - Barcelona have raised teenage star Ansu Fati's release clause from
€100 million to €170 million, the Spanish champions
announced on Wednesday.
The 17-year-old's release clause will also be bumped up to €400
million - almost double the world-record €222 million Paris
Saint-Germain paid Barcelona for Neymar - when he signs a professional
contract with the first team.
"FC Barcelona and the player Ansu Fati have agreed on an improved
contract until June 30, 2022, with two years optional, and on his
release clause, which moves from €100 to €170 million," Barca said
in a statement.
Fati became the second youngest player to feature for Barcelona in
August aged 16 and 298 days, before becoming their youngest ever
goalscorer against Osasuna.
He has since decided to play internationally for Spain instead of his
country of birth, Guinea-Bissau, and has won two under-21 caps.
