BARCELONA, Dec 4 (Reuters) - Barcelona have handed their youngest ever league goalscorer Ansu Fati a new contract until 2022 and raised his buy-out clause to 170 million euros ($187 million), the Spanish champions said in a statement on Wednesday.

Fati was catapulted into the first team in August due to a spate of injuries and entered the history books by scoring in a 2-2 draw with Osasuna aged 16 and 304 days, overtaking Bojan Krkic as Barca's youngest scorer in a La Liga match.

Fati, who turned 17 on Oct. 31, has made a total of 11 appearances for the first team this season, starting four times and scoring twice.
