Sport (17/04/23 as relayed by Sport Witness) have now handed Tottenham a boost in their pursuit of Ansu Fati by revealing that Barcelona will put the youngster on the market even though the player wants to stay at the club.
Fati has struggled to establish himself as a regular starter for Barca this season and Fichajes.net reported last week that the forward could be on his way out of Camp Nou this summer.
The publication claimed that the Catalan giants need to raise funds through player sales and might be open to cashing in on the 20-year-old, with Spurs named as one of the clubs who had expressed an interest in the youngster.
However, this was subsequently contradicted by a report in Mundo Deportivo (13/04/23 via Sport Witness), which claimed that the attacker had turned down an approach from the North London club.
The publication claimed that the Spain international had told his agent that he wishes to remain at Camp Nou as he is not prepared to give up on his dream of playing for Barcelona.
Sport have now also confirmed the same, stating that Fati has made it clear that he wants to remain at his boyhood club.
However, it is asserted that Xavi Hernandez’s men are expected to put the attacker ‘on the market’ against his wishes.
The publication asserts that Fati’s representatives are now thus offering his client to several Premier League sides.
Spurs Web Opinion
Given Barca’s financial state at present, they will likely be willing to listen to offers for Fati, particularly since the youngster has clearly fallen down Xavi’s pecking order.
However, I would be surprised if Tottenham get involved in a bidding war with other Premier League sides for the 20-year-old’s signature.
