Ansu Fati Open to Leaving Barcelona as Transfer Window Nears Closure

August 30, 2023 11:41 am

In a surprising turn of events, Ansu Fati, the young Barcelona forward, is now reportedly open to entertaining offers to depart from the Catalan club before the transfer window concludes at the end of this month.

Previously, Fati had staunchly expressed his desire to remain at Barcelona, despite his father’s advice to seek new opportunities elsewhere. However, fresh reports from Mundo Deportivo suggest that Fati has had a change of heart. Follow your favourite football team with attractive La Liga odds from Nextbet. 

Sources indicate that Fati has taken some time for introspection in recent days and is willing to at least consider any offers that may come his way, primarily through his agent, Jorge Mendes.

Among the interested parties, Chelsea, Tottenham, and Dortmund have reportedly shown interest in the talented forward. It’s worth noting that any potential departure for Fati would likely be in the form of a loan rather than a permanent transfer.

Should Fati decide to leave Barcelona, it could trigger a chain reaction in the transfer market. Barcelona, in turn, might seek the services of Joao Felix from Atletico Madrid. Felix has long awaited a move to Barcelona, and this transfer window might be his chance.

Interestingly, both Ansu Fati and Joao Felix are clients of agent Jorge Mendes. With both players potentially on the move, Mendes is set for a bustling period as he endeavors to keep his clients content.

While Ansu Fati has made appearances in all three La Liga fixtures for Barcelona this season, he has primarily played as a substitute in each of these matches. As the transfer deadline looms, Fati’s future remains uncertain, and fans eagerly await the outcome of this intriguing development in the football world.
