Manchester United enquire super-agent Jorge Mendes about Barcelona prodigy Ansu Fati
According to Mundo Deportivo (h/t Caught Offside), Manchester United have asked super-agent Jorge Mendes about the availability of Barcelona prodigy Ansu Fati.
The Barcelona wonderkid is hot property across Europe right now. Fati is Jorge Mendes’s client and the agent has a cordial relationship with Manchester United.
The super-agent has represented a number of players at the Old Trafford outfit, including Cristiano Ronaldo, who returned to the club this summer. He also represented former Man Utd manager Jose Mourinho.
The 18-year-old is highly regarded in Barcelona. However, Fati is in the final year of his contract at Camp Nou.
The Catalan giants are pretty confident of holding on to their teenage sensation. As a gesture of his importance to the team, Barcelona even handed him the No. 10 jersey this summer following the exit of Lionel Messi.
Manchester United already possess a lot of attacking threats in their squad. Their recent business has helped to bolster their attacking unit a great deal. Nevertheless, a special player like Ansu Fati would be a great addition to any team.
According to Marca (h/t Team Talk), Barcelona received an offer of €150m for the young winger back in 2020 itself from Manchester United, but the Spanish side rebuffed that offer. They want the 18-year-old to stay at Camp Nou.
