In light of monetary constraints and increasing competition within the squad, Barcelona are compelled to make certain sacrifices in the transfer market before the window officially slams shut.
Ansu Fati has been one of the Blaugrana players who has been constantly linked with a move away from Catalonia, with a cloud of uncertainty looming over his future as things stand.
Owing to the player’s dwindling game time and reduced importance in Xavi’s plans, the possibility of seeing Fati’s exit materialize this summer is certainly not far off.
Fati with no shortage of suitors
The Spanish sensation’s stance has always been clear: he yearns to climb his way back up the pecking order at his boyhood club.
However, Barçaa’s insistence on offloading Fati this summer has sparked a great deal of interest from foreign clubs.
Adrian Sanchez has come out to report that Arsenal and Tottenham are following the evolution of the ‘Ansu Fati case’, ready to potentially pounce if he decides to close his chapter in Barcelona for good.
The player’s agent, Jorge Mendes, has reportedly also received a number of formal offers for the player in the past, which Fati has not paid heed to considering his desire to make a name for himself at Barcelona.
On the contrary, the La Liga champions recognise that they need to free up more Fair Play margin to register any new players that they sign from hereon. As such, they remain open to listening to offers for Fati.
Given the player’s reluctance, Barcelona have opened the doors for even a temporary loan deal.
PSG, Atletico Madrid are already said to be watching the situation closely and now Arsenal and Spurs have also joined in.
Fati is desperate to reverse his ailing fortunes, but if he shows openness to leave, the North London powerhouses, Arsenal and Tottenham, would be willing to splash some cash on the 20-year-old forward.
