Barcelona fans have taken to Twitter to voice their disappointment that their new young star Ansu Fati could potentially miss weeks of action if he were to be called up the Spain squad for the U17’s World Cup, per Sport English.

Fati has broken onto the scene in astonishing fashion at Barcelona, and at just 16-years-old, the La Masia product has scored twice in the first three games for the club [Transfermarkt], becoming their second-ever youngest scorer after Vicenç Martínez, who has held the record for 80 years.
However, despite helping fill the void of the injured Lionel Messi, the Catalans could be set to lose the teenager for up to three weeks if the Spanish U17’s were to require his services at the World Cup, which, based on current form, is likely to happen.
Incredibly, Fati scored just two minutes into his first start at senior level last week and although Luis Suarez is back, whilst Messi nears a return, Fati’s impact could well be missed, even with such a star-studded squad.
Here’s what the fans have had to say…
Club pay his wages not the country 🤷♂️

In reality he won’t have much playing time then so that would be for the best

Let him, he’ll learn from the experience and we’ll surely have Messi, Suarez, Dembele, Griezmann anyway. It’s like 20 days.
