Spain and Barcelona forward, Ansu Fati, is being offered to some unnamed Premer League clubs by his agent Jorge Mendes who is determined to prevent the younger’s career from becoming extinct at camp Nou.
Despite being fit and prepared for competition, Ansu Fati has significantly lost status at Barcelona throughout this season.
The Spaniard was originally seen as a player who could usher in Camp Nou’s next golden age. But he now appears to be a mere shadow of his former self.
This season, Fati has been involved in 24 league games. Starting just nine of them. He has contributed three goals and three assists during this period. However, he scored his last goal in La Liga in October 2022.

The 20-year-old’s minutes have decreased significantly over the past few months. This is a result of his loss of form. Barcelona manager, Xavi, frequently prefers Gavi to play on the left wing, reducing Fati to fewer minutes off the substitutes bench and occasionally playing him as a striker.
In a recent interview, Ansu Fati’s father, Bori Fati, lashed out at Xavi and Barcelona for denying his son playing time.
“Mateu Alemany tells me that Ansu is part of the club’s heritage. As a father, I have told Ansu that it is better for him to leave. But Ansu has told me that he does not agree with me on this. He wants to stay,” Bori said.
“If it was up to me, I would leave Barcelona tomorrow. I told Ansu that if the situation didn’t change, we would have to leave, but he tells me that I’m wrong,” he concluded.
Following this interview, SPORT has provided some additional information regarding Fati’s transfer situation. They reported that while the winger has no plans to leave the club, his agent Jorge Mendes has valued him at €35 million and has been courting Premier League teams.
Although Barça disagree with this valuation, the club has received a warning from the Portuguese agent; that if Fati is not given regular playing time, his market value could only drop by the time the transfer window opens, which would make selling him a difficult task.
