Ansu Fati signs a new contract with Barcelona until 2024, with the attacker's release clause rising to £367m.

Teenage attacker Ansu Fati has officially signed a new long-term contract with Barcelona, which includes a release clause of €400m (£367m).

The 17-year-old enjoyed a breakthrough 2019-20 campaign at Camp Nou, scoring eight times and registering one assist in 33 appearances for the Catalan giants.

Earlier this summer, it was reported that Manchester United were interested in the teenager and would be prepared to pay a substantial fee to bring him to Old Trafford.

However, the speculation surrounding the attacker's future has now ended as he has penned a new deal until 2024.

The youngster, who has taken on the number 22 shirt following Arturo Vidal's departure, has also seen his release clause rise to €400m (£367m).

Fati became the youngest first-team goalscorer in Barca's history when he netted against Osasuna in La Liga at the age of 16 years and 304 days last August.

Meanwhile, he also recently made history for Spain, becoming the nation's youngest ever goalscorer by registering against Ukraine in the UEFA Nations League earlier this month.
