According to the "Marca" news, Fati officially became a member of the Barcelona first team from today. He completed the registration this morning. According to the contract he signed with Barcelona in December last year, his liquidated damages were automatically increased to 400 million euros. .
However, the newspaper said that since Fati’s current contract will last until 2022, being promoted to the first team will not bring about an increase in salary. Since Fati was not yet 18 years old at the time of signing, the contract is valid for only three years at most (five years for adult players). Although there is a two-year renewal clause, Barcelona cannot be unilaterally activated.
Fati’s contract affairs were once taken care of by Messi’s brother Rodrigo Messi. A month ago, it was taken over by the famous agent Mendes. Two weeks ago, he started discussing Fati’s future with Barcelona.
