Barcelona’s president has explained they won’t be accepting bids for wonderkid Ansu Fati following interest from the likes of Chelsea
We have been in the transfer headlines alot over the past few months, as boss Frank Lampard knows that he needs to spend some money in the transfer window and land a few players that are able to make a real difference to the side, now, and in the future.
That has led to reports in the media suggesting that we have take a real shine to the exciting Fati, who is easily one of the most talented players to come out of Barcelona for some time.
The 17-year-old winger, who is now Barca’s youngest ever goalscorer, has five goals in 20 Champions League and LaLiga appearances, and is also attracting interest from Premier Leagur giants Manchester United and Manchester City.
However, Barcelona are in no mood to sell their exciting star, who could be the long-term solution to replacing Lionel Messi, and they have come out and responded to rumours they could decide to let the man leave.
Josep Maria Bartomeu told SPORT: “We haven’t had any formal offers but there has been interest from some clubs.
“Barça can’t sell Ansu, even if it might feel like an option to balance the books during a pandemic.
“We never considered letting him go. The opposite, in fact, what we want is to aid his development and extend his time here so that he plays at Barça for the rest of his life.”
