Liverpool and Manchester United are reportedly set to take their huge rivalry to different grounds. They have placed their attention on one Barcelona star that has been showing impressive things in recent times, and it looks like they aren’t the only ones who will try to push for this move.
The two Premier League giants are among the clubs interested in Ansu Fati, the newest Barcelona wonderkid. The 16-year-old player has had a sweet start of the season, finding himself in Ernesto Valverde’s first-team, taking the place of none other than Lionel Messi. That should tell you about how good this kid is.
According to Diario Gol, Messi himself is now concerned about keeping hold of Fati following his fine recent form, as his release clause is only €100 million. This report notes that both Liverpool and United have approached Barcelona over signing the teenager.
In three La Liga appearances, Fati has scored two goals and dished one assist. This is indeed one for the future, but we don’t know if the Blaugrana actually think this guy needs to stay with them. It’s not a surprise that the best clubs around Europe have turned their heads to him and are keen to snap him up.
With the good things he’s done so far, maybe Barca will think twice before letting this talent go. Following their failed pursuit of Neymar, Fati has emerged as a great option for the La Liga champions, whether they sign the Brazilian or not in the future.
