Transfer setback for Man United as 20-year-old sensation seeks La Liga stay

Ansu Fati intends to stay at Barcelona amidst Manchester United interest

Barcelona star Ansu Fati has revealed that he has no intention of leaving Barcelona in the ongoing transfer window amidst interest from Manchester United.

In the 2022/23 campaign, the forward saw his game time reduce under Xavi. As a result, the Spain international has been linked with the Red Devils and Premier League rivals Arsenal.

However, speaking to Teledeporte (h/t Manchester Evening News), the 20-year-old put the rumours regarding his future at the Blaugrana to rest. The striker is delighted to be at the Camp Nou side.

“I have a contract with Barca and my intention is to continue improving and growing there. That is my intention. I have a contract and I’m happy. Both in my club and in the national team.”

Fati made his way through the youth ranks at Barcelona. The La Masia academy graduate broke onto the scene a few seasons back and impressed many with his directness and a keen eye for goal.

Unfortunately, over the years, injuries have hampered the forward’s development at the Blaugrana. Still, the Camp Nou side seemed to have faith in the Spaniard, handing him the number 10 shirt after Lionel Messi’s departure. However, the youngster has failed to kick on since then.

Last season, the 20-year-old played a bit-part role as Barcelona won La Liga. He also came on as a substitute as Spain beat Croatia in the Nations League final.

At United, Marcus Rashford has made the left wing his own. The England international thrived under Erik ten Hag in the previous campaign and was our leading goalscorer in all competitions.

We also have Alejandro Garnacho in our ranks. The Argentine, who recently made his senior debut for the national side, has shown a lot of potential at the Old Trafford side.

Therefore, the Red Devils have their own promising talent at the club for now. Fati has gone off the boil a bit in recent months. It makes sense that the Spaniard wants to stay at his boyhood club. It remains to be seen whether we will pursue his signature further down the line.
