BARCELONA have tied down wonderkid Ansu Fati to a six-year deal with an eye-watering £846million release clause.
Fati burst onto the scene as a 16-year-old, making his professional debut in the 5-2 win over Real Betis.

The youngster has played 48 times for the Catalan giants, scoring 15 and assisting six.
Fati also has four senior Spain caps.
But a ten month-long knee injury ruled him out of Euro 2020, missing Spain’s run to the semi-finals.
But on his return to first-team action for Barca, he’s scored two in LaLiga.
And he came off the bench in yesterday’s 1-0 Champions League group win against Dynamo Kyiv.
Barca lost their opening two group games to Bayern Munich and Benfica.
