Konrad de la Fuente extends contract at Barcelona

U.S. under-20 national team winger Konrad de la Fuente signed a new contract with Barcelona that will keep him at the Catalan club through the 2021-22 season with an option for two additional years.

De la Fuente, who turns 19 on July 16, split time in 2019-20 with Barcelona "B" in the Spanish third division and Barcelona's U-19s.
He has a release clause of 50 million euros ($57.5 million). It will rise to 100 million euros ($115 million) if he is promoted to the  Barca first team.

"It has always been my dream to play for the first team," de la Fuente said in a statement, "and that is why I want to stay here -- to try to achieve it."

He started for the USA at the 2019 U-20 World Cup and is eligible for the 2021 U-20 World Cup.
