These days mark the third anniversary of Neymar’s “betrayal” of FC Barcelona. In fact, on this day in 2017, the Brazilian stopped being a culé player to become a new part of Paris Saint Germain after the French champion deposited the € 222 million in which his termination clause was encrypted. Undoubtedly, a historical fact that will not be forgotten as well as in Barcelona.
A new contract in sight
Fearful that the case will repeat itself, FC Barcelona will do everything in its power. But with which player? During this season, the young Ansu Fati has known how to take advantage of his opportunities, exploiting as one of the most important players to consider along with Riqui Puig. In the absence of what happens in the Champions League, Fati has seen the door on 8 opportunities.
The newspaper Sports world today takes stock of the situation of the 17-year-old footballer who at the end of last year saw his contract improved with an extension until 2022 and a € 170 million clause. But Josep María Bartomeu’s fear is still there, so the movements for a new improvement have begun.
Talks with the footballer’s environment have begun and it is planned to offer the player a new salary commensurate with his status on the team. Similarly, the plans include raising the termination clause to € 400 million, a figure that would avoid any problem in the form of a possible leak in the future.
