The future of Ansu Fati at Barcelona remains uncertain, as the club has made it clear that they are open to offers for the talented youngster. With just over two weeks left in the transfer window, Barcelona has communicated this decision to Fati and his representatives, who were already aware of the situation since the beginning of the summer. While Fati still prioritizes staying at Barcelona, he acknowledges that his playing time may be limited.
Constant communication between Barcelona and Fati’s agent, Jorge Mendes, indicates that the Portuguese agent is aware of the club’s sporting decision, although he will not push for the player’s departure. Fati and his family have made it clear that they want him to continue at Barcelona and have defended this decision. However, they are not oblivious to the sentiments of the club, and a consensus solution may be sought.
Barcelona has received a proposal from a Premier League club for around 50 million euros. Similar to the situation with Wolverhampton in the past, the player does not seem interested in the club, as he prioritizes fighting for a place in the Barcelona team. There is also interest from a Spanish team, while Saudi Arabia is reportedly putting significant pressure. Barcelona is well aware that significant developments are on the horizon.
In fact, Barcelona’s coach, Xavi Hernández, recently stated after the Gamper Trophy match that he cannot guarantee anything regarding Fati’s future. Internally, the club has made a clear decision, but it will not be made public, and they will continue to support the player. It is worth noting that Fati has had an impressive preseason and appears to be in excellent form. It is likely that Xavi and Fati will have a final conversation in the coming days after the start of the league season.
A potential departure in the form of a sale would greatly benefit Barcelona in their pursuit of further signings, and all eyes are currently on Fati. However, it is also clear that the club will not push him to the limit, as he is a special player who has the potential to regain his previous level. The only certainty is that his future hangs in the balance.
