90 min have claimed that Barcelona have now informed rumoured Tottenham target Ansu Fati that he can leave the club this summer.
Multiple Spanish publications have reported over the last month that Tottenham are eyeing a move for Fati, who has fallen down the pecking order at Barcelona this season (Fichajes.net).
Sport claimed last week that the Catalan giants had decided to cash in on the 20-year-old this summer as they need to raise funds to pursue their top transfer targets.
The publication asserted that Fati’s agent, Jorge Mendes, had promised to bring an offer of around €70m (£61.7m) for his client, which Barca would be ready to accept.
According to 90 min’s latest update, the attacker has now been informed that he can leave Barca, who are now thought to be ‘working tirelessly’ on a deal to bring Lionel Messi back to Camp Nou.
It is said that the club are working to ensure that the deal will not fall foul of La Liga’s financial regulations, which is why they have decided to cash in on Fati.
The outlet makes no mention of Spurs but adds that the Spain international is of interest to both Wolves and West Ham United.
However, it is asserted that Fati would not be particularly keen on joining either side and would hope for a bigger club to come calling this summer.

The fact that none of the big Premier League clubs are seemingly prioritising a move for Fati is quite indicative of the attacker’s decline over the last 12 months.
If the 20-year-old is valued at around £60m, I hope Tottenham stay well clear of the deal.
