At the age of 17 the young Spaniard has been able to provide Barcelona with 5 goals and 1 assist in 17 league appearances. Fati has an estimated market value of around 40 million euros and has a contract which keeps him at the Camp Nou till 2022.
The wonderkid has received a lot of interest from Manchester United who want to sign the Spaniard in the upcoming transfer window. According to the Mirror, the Red Devils had offered to pay 89 million euros for the transfer of the young Spaniard which was rejected by the 2018-2019 La Liga leaders. More recently, the English club has resubmitted another offer of around 136 million euros which has been rejected again.
The Spanish giants have put a price of 150 million euros to sign Fati.
However, there are reports that have claimed that Ansu Fati is not interested to leave the Spanish club and is keen to sign a new long-term deal with the side which could potentially have a release clause of around 360 million euros. Barca’s director Xavier Vilajoana has stated that the cub won’t be willing to sell Fati or any other players in their squad who the club considers to be a part of the first team in the future.
Many believe that Fati has enough potential to be the successor to Lionel Messi. The Spanish giants must work on helping the player grow and develop into his optimum potential as well as provide him with sufficient game time in the upcoming season. Quique Setien must focus on selling the clubs older players such as Ivan Rakitic and Arturo Vidal and signing younger players who can effectively replace the older players from the side and add more value to the club.
