Ansu Fati, a Barcelona prodigy, reportedly wants to leave the team after sliding behind Xavi in the hierarchy.
The Spanish forward has been tipped to have a huge future at Barcelona but has fallen down the pecking order under coach Xavi.
Indeed, AS reports that Fati has told his agent to seek out interest from other clubs – with several Premier League sides likely to be keen – after only appearing in the final 11 minutes of Barca’s opening game of the season against Getafe.
The Daily Mail states that the likes of Manchester United, Tottenham and Arsenal would all be interested in signing the player.
Also, AS states that Atletico Madrid are unlikely to be in the running, despite having previously been linked with the 20-year-old.
With Barcelona still in financial uncertainty, Fati could well be sold, with the player valued at around €50m(£43m/$54m) by the club.
AS reports that Fati, whose contract with Barca doesn’t expire until the summer of 2027, has lost Xavi’s ‘trust’.
While he was determined to stay put and prove his worth, he has changed his mind following his lack of minutes in pre-season and in the opening-weekend draw with Getafe.
It remains to be seen if he will leave Barcelona before the end of the transfer window.
Barcelona will play Cadiz on Sunday, and should Fati not be involved from the start in that game, it could be the final nail in the coffin in terms of his time with the Blaugrana.
