Breaking news!!! Barcelona announce signing of Chelsea target and include £341m release clause in his contract

As of right now, Barcelona has officially surpassed Chelsea in acquiring Mikayil Faye from NK Kustosija.

The transaction was revealed on the official social media accounts of the Spanish powerhouses, with Fabrizio Romano providing some vital facts.

What’s the premise?

The Daily Mail, however, was the source of the information that Chelsea was interested in signing the Senegalese wonderkid this summer.

Stamford Bridge scouts reportedly expressed admiration for Faye’s versatility across the backline and his marauding approach to bringing the ball out of defense.

Sadly, Chelsea have already lost out to Barcelona in the race to recruit the 18-year-old.

The Spanish giants have also taken precautions to make sure that no one will ever steal the teen sensation from them for a pittance in the near future.


Romano stated on Twitter that Faye’s contract at the Camp Nou includes a €400 million (£341 million) release clause that will last until the agreement ends in June 2027.


Chelsea shouldn’t be concerned that Faye will join Barcelona.

Our opinion is that Faye going to Barcelona shouldn’t be considered a major event.

In actuality, Chelsea undoubtedly has a couple center defenders in the Cobham academy who are at least as talented.

Consider Marc Guehi and Levi Colwill as an illustration.

Both defenders are now serving with England on an international mission.

They recently competed at Chelsea’s academy and are currently among the best center-backs the country has to offer.

Faye’s choice to transfer elsewhere has little immediate influence on Chelsea’s plans, as The Daily Mail’s initial report indicated that Chelsea intended to send him on loan even if they were unable to buy him.

There shouldn’t be too much sadness about Faye’s move to Barcelona, despite the fact that he undoubtedly seems like a tremendous prospect.
