Villarreal have tied highly-rated forward Samuel Chukwueze to a new contract with a renewed €100m release clause, say Diario AS.
The 20-year-old Nigerian is enjoying an impressive rise to prominence for the Yellow Submarine’s first-team squad after only making his debut in November last year.
The player’s former contract at the contract contained a €40m release clause which would allow bigger clubs in European football to circulate for his signature.
It is claimed that the €100m release clause will be in place for the next two years before dropping to €80m in the third year, which would allow the player to move for less and reward his loyalty.
The Nigerian international is now a regular in Javi Calleja’s side having already made eight appearances in La Liga this campaign and looks set to have a bright future at the top level.
The new deal is said to be a recognition of his growth as a player and the potential he possesses.
