Barcelona, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 21st Oct, 2021 ) :Ansu Fati has extended his contract with Barcelona until 2027, the club announced on Wednesday, shortly after their 1-0 victory over Dynamo Kiev in the Champions League.
Fati, who has recently returned after almost a year out with a knee injury, will have a release clause in his new deal set at one billion euros.
Fati, along with Spanish midfielder Pedri, is widely regarded as the most exciting talent in an emerging group of Barcelona youngsters.
The club's statement described Fati as "currently one of football's hottest properties" and "one of the squad's players with the brightest future".
After losing Lionel Messi to Paris Saint-Germain in the summer, the 18-year-old has taken the Argentinian's iconic number 10 shirt at Barca and his return from injury has lifted the mood in recent weeks.
The teenager, who turns 19 on October 31, is still being eased back to full fitness and began on the bench against Dynamo on Wednesday, presumably with a view to starting in the Clasico against Real Madrid at Camp Nou this weekend.
The forward has broken a series of records, including becoming the youngest ever Barcelona player to score in La Liga, score at Camp Nou and play in the Champions League.
In total, he has made 47 appearances for Barcelona, scoring 15 goals.
