Barcelona: Fans react to Ansu Fati report

Reports on Twitter claim that Barcelona are going to offer 16-year-old winger Ansu Fati a new contract and squad number, and officially promote him to a member of the first-team squad (via @barcacentre).

Was missing out on Neymar a blessing in disguise for Barcelona?

Yes

Yes

No

No

The teenager was thrust into the starting line-up earlier this season after injuries plagued Ernesto Valverde’s squad, and impressed by scoring two goals and registering an assist, per Transfermarkt.

Fati, who turns 17 at the end of October, hasn’t featured for the Catalans since the end of September when he made a 12-minute appearance off the substitutes’ bench against Villarreal, but is held in extremely high regard by Nou Camp chiefs.

Reports claim that the Blaugrana are set to offer Fati a bumper new contract and increase his release clause from €100m to €200m.

This is understandable considering the player’s tender age and vast potential, though could perhaps be viewed as a little premature considering he is yet to make a single appearance for the club’s B team, promoted directly from the Under-19s to the first-team with absolutely no experience of senior football.

These Barcelona fans agree that the club’s proposed plans for the teenager may be coming a little too early, with one supporter stating he could become the next Bojan Krkic…
