Record-breaking teenager Lamine Yamal signs new Barcelona contract
The 16-year-old is now tied to the club until June 2026.
Lamine Yamal has signed a new contract with Barcelona until June 2026.
The 16-year-old winger made his breakthrough last season, becoming the Catalan club’s youngest-ever player when he made his debut against Real Betis in April aged 15 years, nine months and 16 days old.
Yamal has made nine appearances for Xavi’s side so far this season and also won his first Spain cap in September.
The winger, who joined Barcelona aged seven, scored on his Spain debut against Georgia – becoming the youngest-ever player and goalscorer for La Roja, breaking team-mate Gavi’s record.
Yamal now has a buyout clause set at one billion euros (£870m).
