He barca has, in metaphorical terms, a hot potato with Ansu Fati. Nobody wants to be responsible for a hypothetical sale. This Monday, laporta dropped in an interview on tv3 that it will be the technical direction that decides what happens with the current number 10 of the barca this summer. An elegant way to pass the ball to Xavi already decorationfuture sports director who, by the way, has a deep friendship with jorge mendes.
the one of Ansu it is a delicate case. Renewed a year and a half ago until 2027, with one of the top chips in the squad in order to make him the franchise player of the future as Pedrothe injuries burned the previous course (serious muscle injuries in Vigo and san mames) and this one has not finished settling in the eleven because he has not finished clinging to his opportunities. But Ansu He is one of the most beloved players by the fans, who have seen him grow up and grow in the farmhouse. And besides, he’s a talent. Nobody wants to charge in barca with the responsibility of leaving. laporta, Xavi, Jordi Cruyff either decoration They know that if they recover their level, they can succeed at any club in the world. And they would have to bear that.
It’s an old issue in football. Technicians and managers will try to get the player to take the step and say publicly that he wants to leave to get rid of him. But Ansu It’s not on that screen. The extemporaneous statements of his father Bori (“If it were up to me, he would leave”), which then recoiled weeks later (“he stays safe”), raised alarms about a possible express sale. But Ansu has insisted: “I have a contract until 2027 and my idea is to continue at the barca many more years”. Pedri asked for affection for the youth squad in the champions’ parade. And it is clear that Ansu continues to have a pull among the people.
If Barça wants to sign Messi, they already know that they need to make quick operations in the market because the Argentine is not going to wait. But the one of Ansu is not easy. Mendes moves it in the market and always has the door open to the wolverhampton. But the last word belongs to the player and, if he doesn’t take the step, the situation can become entrenched.
