Ansu Fati gets older: number 22 and clause of 400 million

Ansu Fati is already for all purposes a player of the Barça first team. This same morning he signed his new contract, which includes an ostensible improvement in the termination clause, the point that Barcelona was in the most hurry to take considering its meteoric progression and the market that the Spanish international already has. Manchester United, to be precise, even considered addressing his hiring. From now on, the club that wants to sign Ansu must pay the 400 million of the clause and not the 170 previously set.

“It is the dream of any boy from La Masia from his first day. I am happy, both myself and my family. I am very excited and I want to continue learning from my teammates and improve. Every year at Barça is a challenge and I am excited to overcome each one of them“, commented the own footballer for the means of the Barcelona after stamping the signature.

The forward, called to be one of the icons of the new Barcelona, ​​will already wear the number 22 on his shirt against Villarreal, in this day's match that will mean the premiere of the team now trained by Ronaldo Koeman. AS already pointed out a little over a week ago that the club had already communicated to the player himself that he would be part of the first team and that this clause increase would take place.

What has not changed is the duration of the contract or his salary. Ansu Fati ends this link with Barcelona, ​​the club in which he was formed, in 2022. This is a first measure to avoid a possible departure, so that his salary improvement and the duration of his contract with Barcelona could later undergo a new impulse, taking into account his youth (he has not yet turned 18) and the hopes that are placed in him.

With the variation in Ansu Fati's contract, the attack of the first team is still populated despite the departure of Luis Suárez to Atlético de Madrid, mainly with players like Leo Messi, Antoine Griezmann, Ansu Fati, Ousmane Dembele, Philippe Coutinho and Martin Braithwaite as main weapons. And the main target is still Depay. More wood.
