FC Barcelona will not consider to sell Ansu Fati this or next summer. The 17-year-old winger has attracted the interest of Manchester United and it is even believed that the Red Devils have made an offer worth €100 million for Fati. Barcelona, however, now respond to the speculation insisting that Fati is not for sale.
“We won’t use players from the academy to make money,” club director Xavier Viljoana told Sport. “In principle, we have no intention of selling the players we believe will make the first team. I think he’s happy here and he will be an important player in the coming years.”
Fati played a big part in Barcelona’s 2-0 win over Leganes on Tuesday, opening te score just before half time. Lionel Messi then finished the score in the second half with a magical dribble. Fati’s current deal will run until the summer of 2022 but it is expected that Barcelona will try to open negotiations to extend and upgrade his current contract.
