Barcelona are ready to include a release clause of £360m in a new deal for teenage protege Ansu Fati, according to a report.

Barcelona are allegedly prepared to insert a £360m release clause into a new deal for teenager Ansu Fati in a bid to keep him on the books at Camp Nou.

The 17-year-old enjoyed a breakthrough campaign in La Liga in the most recent season, turning out 24 times in the Spanish top flight and chalking up seven goals and one assist in the process.

Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu recently affirmed that he wishes to keep Fati in Catalonia "for life", and La Blaugrana are supposedly ready to put that plan into action with a bumper new deal for the teenager.

According to Marca, Barca are prepared to include a staggering £360m release clause in a proposed new deal for Fati in an attempt to ward off interest from other top European sides.

The report claims that the Catalan giants are desperate to avoid a repeat of the Neymar situation from 2017, where Paris Saint-Germain triggered the Brazilian's £198m release clause and made him the world's most expensive player.

Fati's current deal at Camp Nou is set to expire in the summer of 2022.
