Ansu Fati has been one of the most sought-after players in Europe this summer, with reports suggesting that the Barcelona starlet has been offered to half of Europe by his agent Jorge Mendes. The 17-year-old has been linked with a move away from the Camp Nou, with both Manchester United and Arsenal reportedly interested in signing the Spanish international.
Fati has been a revelation since breaking into the Barcelona first team last season, scoring eight goals and providing four assists in just 25 appearances. His performances have seen him become one of the most highly-rated young players in Europe, and it appears that his agent is now looking to cash in on his potential.
According to reports, Mendes has offered Fati to a number of clubs across Europe, including Manchester United and Arsenal. The Red Devils have been linked with a move for the winger, while the Gunners are also believed to be keen on signing the youngster.
However, it remains to be seen whether either club will be able to agree a deal with Barcelona for Fati. The Catalan giants are believed to be keen to keep hold of the player, and are reportedly demanding a fee of around €100 million for his services.
That could prove to be a stumbling block for any potential suitors, with both Manchester United and Arsenal likely to be unwilling to pay such a high fee for a player of Fati’s age and experience.
Nevertheless, it appears that Mendes is doing his best to ensure that Fati gets the move he desires, and it will be interesting to see if either Manchester United or Arsenal can agree a deal with Barcelona for the player.
If Fati does move on this summer, it will be a huge loss for Barcelona, who have seen the player develop into one of the most exciting young talents in Europe. However, it could be a great opportunity for either Manchester United or Arsenal to sign a player with huge potential.
