Barcelona wants to follow in the footsteps of Ansu Fati, then Lionel Messi?
Only time will tell whether Fati will ever be like Messi on the field. With immense talent and it continues to be translated in the field, Barcelona is dreaming. Manchester United has been running since last July for this ‘wonder boy’ from Barca’s footballer farm ‘La Masia’. Fati’s agent, Jorge Mendez, told Barca that a large sum of money had been offered to him by a club. And the club that is United has also been published in the media. United want to buy Fatima for a one-time transfer fee of 125 million euros (125 million euros) and another 25 million euros on condition. Barca has rejected the offer, according to Catalunya Radio.
The Catalan club has reason to reject the offer. The 18-year-old winger was recently included in Barca’s main squad by coach Ronald Coman. Arturo Vidal’s number 22 jersey is now on him. Earlier, the media reported that the price of his buyout clause will increase to 400 million euros as soon as Ansu Fati joins Barca’s main team. Barcelona’s current contract with him expires in 2022. However, despite being called up to the main team, Barcelona has not been able to extend his contract. This is because of Ansu Fati’s age. Ansu Fati will turn 18 on the 31st of next month. Ansu Fati will not be able to sign a contract for more than two years in one term before that. In the previous contract, Fatir’s buyout clause was 160 million euros.
According to Spanish media, Barca has hinted at a new deal with Ansu Fati after he reached the age of 18. Then his salary per season could be 10 million euros. And after spending this time like this, after reaching the age of 16, Barcelona wants to take his buy-out clause out of the reach of 400 million Euros. Because, despite Neymar’s buyout clause being 222 Euros, PSG pulled him in 2016. There is no denying that by 2022, it will be possible for any strong team to spend 400 million euros on Ansu Fathi. Barcelona doesn’t even want to take that risk.
And if Barcelona wants to sell Fatima, then the Catalan club will be in a favorable position to bargain after the signing of a new contract. At least United or other teams then have to raise prices further. According to the media, there was no discussion between the club and the players. It goes without saying that he is unlikely before next year’s presidential election.
