Barcelona will not allow teenage forward Ansu Fati to leave the club and want him to remain in their first-team squad.
The Catalan giants confirmed in December that Fati had signed a new contract through until 2022 with an improved release clause amid a fast start to life in the first-team.
The 17-year-old forward, who is the youngest player to score for Barcelona in La Liga, will remain with the Catalan giants through until June 2022 – renewing his previous deal by two years.
Fati – born in Guinea Bissau, who now has Spanish nationality and also qualifies to represent Portugal – scored and assisted on his first start for the Blaugrana in their 5-2 win over Valencia in September and his level of performance has generated a great level of excitement.
Fati has also become a Spain Under-21 international in recent months after his nationality papers were processed.
