According to a recent report by Marca, Barcelona are eager to offer Ansu Fati a fresh contract so that they can fend off interest from other clubs by inserting a mammoth €400m release clause in his new deal. The same source has also revealed that the Catalans giants are desperate to tie the Spanish winger down to a mega-deal as they don’t want to lose him similar to how they had done in the case of Neymar Jr.
Fati’s Recent Rise In Spanish Football
The talented teenager has enjoyed an incredible season at the Nou Camp after putting in a string of impressive performances on the left side of Quique Setien’s frontline. He has made 32 appearances for Barca this term, netting eight goals and providing one assist on all fronts which sheds light on his rapid emergence at Catalonia.
Fati has proven his worth as a dangerous wide player and deserves some credit for averaging 1.3 shots, 0.7 key passes and 0.9 dribbles per 90 minutes in La Liga and the UEFA Champions League this season. He has also been exceptional with his ball-distribution based on his pass success rate of 85.7% in league football (stats via whoscored).
The 17-year-old has played for Spain at the Under-21 level but is still waiting to make a senior debut for his homeland. Maybe getting his long-term future at Barca secured could help him take his game to the next level by improving his end-product for both club and country in the coming years.
What Will The Spanish Starlet Bring To The Table?
Fati can use his quickness and agility to complete some dangerous dribbles down the left flank. He possesses outstanding balance when running with the ball. The Barcelona wide player can glide past the opposition defenders using his burst of pace and clever turns in the attacking third. However, the Spanish youngster’s game is still a bit rough around the edges, so he still has a long way to go before he can break into the world-class bracket.
Why The Catalans Need To Tie Fati Down To A New Deal
Quique Setien must secure the futures of his younger players if he wants to build a period of sustained success at the Nou Camp. The Spanish whizkid has the potential to help Barca bridge the gap to Real Madrid at the top of La Liga in the coming seasons. Fati could end up becoming a generational talent which has increased Barca’s need to retain his services for the long-run.
Fati is also highly versatile as he can operate in any position across the frontline. He will help Barca challenge for top honours for years to come. Fati could even follow in Lionel Messi’s footsteps into becoming the Catalan outfit’s main man when the Argentine maestro eventually decides to hang up his Barca boots in the years to come. Hence, the Spanish heavyweights need to make sure they agree on a fresh contract with Fati before the other European top clubs can get a sniff at recruiting him.
