FC Barcelona has plans to sell wonderkid Ansu Fati next summer, AS reports. The Catalan giants are not impressed with the forward’s development over the past two years and after his father Bori Fati made some hard comments towards the club, Barcelona are seriously considering to sell Fati during the summer window to generate space in their tight financial budget.
Fati is considered as one of the next big players coming from the famous La Masia youth academy at Barcelona but injuries have kept Fati from his big break in the first team. The forward suffered a severe meniscus injury in November 2020 and was sidelined for more than a year. After his return Fati has not been able to reach his old level and he has been suffering from minor muscle injuries over and over again.
This has led Barcelona boss Xavi not selecting Fati much this season and that has angered his father, who said: “If this continues, we will go back to Seville,” he recently told Spanish media. “He is physically super fit, very fit. Now he has more explosiveness than he had before, certainly. If he gets confidence, it will come out. But if you don’t get confidence, then it’s difficult.” In recent weeks Fati senior has been speaking with technical director Mateu Alemany and sporting director Jordi Cruijff about the future of his sun.
Ferran Torres is also on the shortlist to leave the Nou Camp this summer. The Spanish international was brought in by Xavi in the winter window of 2021 but he has failed to offer the goods in front of goal. It is said that Atletico Madrid are interested in signing Torres, but it is believed the club from the capital isn’t prepared to meet Barcelona’s transfer demands of at least 55 million euros. Barcelona signed Torres for 55 million from Manchester City, of which 40 million euros still have to be paid.
