Ansu Fati has agreed a new long-term deal with Barcelona to keep the teenager at Camp Nou until 2027, the club announced after Wednesday's 1-0 Champions League win over Dynamo Kiev.

The Spain international's previous contract ran until the end of this season, but Barca had the option to extend that by a further two years.

Fati has made a huge impact since making his senior debut in August 2019 and the Catalans have now tied the talented forward down to fresh terms.

As they did with Pedri, Barca have inserted a 1-billion-euro (1.17-billion-dollar) release clause in the 18-year-old's deal.

Fati has broken a number of records since his emergence in 2019, including becoming Barca's youngest ever La Liga goalscorer at the age of 16 years and 304 days.

Youngest CL scorer

Barca's number 10, which he inherited after Lionel Messi's move to Paris Saint-Germain, is also the youngest scorer in Champions League history thanks to his strike against Inter at San Siro a minute after being brought off the bench in December 2019.

The Bissau-born attacker's development was stunted by a near year-long lay-off, but he has scored two times in five appearances since returning to action last month.

Fati's new contract comes a week on from Pedri penning a five-year extension at Camp Nou.
