The father of rumoured Tottenham target, Ansu Fati, has now declared that his son will remain at Barcelona next season.

The speculation over Fait’s future has been running rife since first reported last month that the likes of Tottenham Hotspur were eyeing a move for the attacker ahead of the summer transfer window.

This was followed by a report from Sport a couple of days ago, which suggested that Barca have decided to cash in on the winger as they need to raise funds to pursue their summer targets.

The publication asserted that the Catalan giants are listening to offers for the forward and that the player’s agent Jorge Mendes has assured the club that he will fetch a bid of around €70m (£61.5m) for his client this summer.

The publication adds that such an offer is most likely to come from the Premier League and would be enough to convince Barca to sell Fati.

However, Fati’s father, Bori, has now poured cold water over those reports by stating that his son will remain at Camp Nou.

Bori said (via Fabrizio Romano): “Ansu will stay at Barcelona. That’s for sure. He stays, it’s guaranteed”.

The likes of Fati and Franck Kessie might want to stay at Barcelona but that does not mean that they would get their wish.

The Catalan giants have not been shy of forcing players out of the club against their wishes and they might do the same this summer, given their need to offset losses.
