Recently, Barca fans felt extremely surprised and excited when the BLD team announced the decision to successfully keep midfielder Pedri. Accordingly, the Spaniard will stay at Camp Nou until the summer of 2026 with a contract release fee of 1 billion euros. This is a move that is supposed to put an end to future speculation surrounding the jewel of the current Blaugrana.
Right after Pedri, Barca’s BLD is also actively working with another extremely potential tomorrow star, Ansu Fati. A source from Marca recently revealed that Barca’s hierarchy is promoting and working proactively with Fati’s agent in discussing a new contract extension. Not only that, the Spaniard is also expected to put pen to paper on a contract with a release clause of up to one billion euros, similar to Pedri.
Ansu Fati is negotiating a contract extension with Barca
Currently, the negotiation and negotiation process between Barca and “super agent” Jorge Mendes of Fati is still having conversations and everything is progressing well. However, no agreement has yet been reached between the two sides.
Barca directors want to protect Ansu Fati from the lust of MU or PSG in the same way they did with Pedri with a huge release clause. Even so, there are still some other issues of the agreement that need to be discussed carefully, such as the length of the contract or the salary.
This is a relatively important issue at the moment when, at present, Barca’s financial situation is not really rich to pay the generous remuneration for Fati. In fact, Barca cannot pay this player low wages for the first year of the contract and then gradually increase over time because La Liga terms do not allow it. That is why both sides are still looking for a creative solution to this problem.
Fati will have a contract release price of 1 billion euros?
According to information from Marca, right after the successful “close deal” with Fati, stars Ousmane Dembele, Ronald Araujo, Sergi Roberto and Gavi will all put pen to paper on a new contract. Of course, the BLD team will not forget to set huge breaking terms to avoid the eyes of the big boys.
Currently president Laporta is developing a plan to retain a core group of players with a lot of potential that the club can gradually rebuild and will eventually become the foundation of Barca’s first team. Ansu Fati is one of those players, and arguably the most important as he becomes the successor to Lionel Messi’s number 10 shirt.
