Ansu Fati's new Barca contract put on hold

2 months ago  Raphael   Sport News

Ansu Fati is now a first-team player at Barcelona. The inclusion of the 17-year-old in Ronald Koeman's senior squad for this season means he'll wear the No.22 shirt and that his release clause has risen to 400 million euros.
However, his official call up to the first team hasn't triggered a clause to extend his contract, which still expires in 2022.
The forward still remains under age, meaning he can't sign a contract of more than two years at a time.
That's why Barcelona have signalled their intention to offer Ansu Fati a new and improved contract for when he turns 18, which could be worth up to 10 million euros per season.
The upgrade in the release clause means Barcelona can take their time over the new deal because the player is out of reach in the transfer market.
The Catalans had received an offer worth 150 million euros (125 million upfront and 25 million in add-ons) for the teenager earlier this summer but it was rejected.
Now, Ansu Fati wants to earn the kind of money his potential warrants, which makes the negotiations difficult for Barcelona.
At the moment, there are no talks being held between player and club, which is expected to remain the case until a new board is elected in next year.
With a new president in charge, it remains to be seen what role Ansu Fati will be given in the future project of the club.
Either way, Barcelona have until January 2022 to tie him down, otherwise he'll be free to talk to other clubs.
