After having officially extended his contract with FC Barcelona, Ansu Fati is expected to turn in the club culé. Gerard Piqué wanted to send a message to his young teammate.
Joan Laporta can take a deep breath. After several weeks of intense negotiations, Barça managed to finalize the extension of their young nugget Ansu Fati . As a result, the Spanish international has renewed his lease until 2027 with his training club. In addition, the Catalan leaders insisted on shielding their crack, since Ansu Fati has a release clause of one billion euros in his contract. After the striking departure of Lionel Messi last August, the extension of Ansu Fati is therefore doing the Blaugrana a lot of good as explained Gerard Piqué .
“Barça needs players like that”
In an interview with Movistar on the occasion of the Clasico which will take place on Sunday against Real Madrid , Gerard Piqué shared his satisfaction after the extension of Ansu Fati : “If Ansu Fati can be the new benchmark of club? Barça need players like that, attackers. People need it, and even more so when the most important actor in our history is gone. But we have to be realistic with the boy. He is 19 years old (next October 31, editor's note) and here, it is the team that must win the matches and he must help to score goals. “
