Barcelona stick €1bn release clause in wonderkid’s latest contract – who isn’t even on EA Sports FC 24 Latest

Barcelona are synonymous with producing some of the most preciously talented footballers in history, and the latest star to come out of their fabled La Masia academy is set to have a €1bn release clause inserted into his new three-year contract.

All that, and the wonderkid in question doesn’t even feature on the newly released EA Sports FC 24.

According to transfer specialist Fabrizio RomanoBarcelona tied down hot prospect Lamine Yamal to his first professional contract as soon as he turned 16-years-old in July, though he had already made his first appearance and scored his first goal for the senior team by then.
