The 17-year-old Guinea-Bissau starlet has impressed during his breakout season at Camp Nou, and the Spanish giants have moved quickly to tie the talented teenager down to new terms.
According to leading media outlets in Catalonia, Fati has signed to stay on until June 2022, while there are two options and two variables in the contract still yet to be revealed.
Fati's involvement in the Barcelona first team has been fast-tracked because of injuries to senior attackers, especially Luis Suarez at the start of the season, and he's stepped up to the plate in a big way to announce himself on the global stage.
In the 5-2 home win over Real Betis, Fati became the club’s second-youngest ever debutant at 16 years & 298. Six days later, he claimed his first professional goal in Barca's 2-2 draw at Osasuna. In so doing, Fati became Barça’s second-youngest goalscorer and the third-youngest in LaLiga history.
In Barcelona's 5-2 win over Valencia, Fati claimed a record all of his own, by becoming the youngest ever player to score and assist in the same LaLiga match. His father called that evening "the greatest of his life."
Fati's new release clause has been set at €170m to ward off interested parties such as Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain.
Forbes believes that Fati's release clause will increase to an eye-watering €400m when he signs professional terms on his 18th birthday, a figure that would make him "bulletproof."
