Teenage sensation, Ansu Fati, set for Barcelona contract discussions

By  | 

Barcelona is reportedly set to start negotiations with teenage sensation, Ansu Fati, over a new long-term contract at the club.

Sources within Fati’s camp disclosed that he is keen to stay at Camp Nou, but he wants assurances about his progression to regular first-team football.

Talks about a new contract for the player would have most likely started, but for the saga surrounding Lionel Messi’s future, with the Guinea-Bissau-born attacker’s current deal set to expire in June 2022.

It is understood that Barcelona wants to increase the player’s current release clause of 170 million euros to 400 million euros in the new contract proposal.

The 17 year-old Fati has earned comparisons with Messi following his meteoric rise over the last 12 months, from La Masia talent to potential superstar.
