Barcelona’s teenage sensation, Ansu Fati, turned 17 yesterday.
The young Spaniard has been a surprise revelation for the Blaugrana this term having broken into the first-team fold due to a spout of injuries at the beginning of the campaign.
Should Barcelona sign Lautaro Martinez?
Fati has now made seven appearances for the first team this season, scoring twice (via Transfermarkt). He is now viewed as an important member in Ernesto Valverde’s senior squad, proven by the fact that he started ahead of Antoine Griezmann on Tuesday evening as Barcelona thrashed Valladolid 5-1 at the Camp Nou.
It is understandable why Barcelona would want to protect their young asset from any club’s wishing to poach him in the future, as it is clear that Fati has a huge future in the game.
On his 17th birthday yesterday, Barcelona fans were quick to wish Fati many happy returns on Twitter, as shown below:
@ANSUFATI…Happy Birthday boy…bless you with More years with skills, ability and wisdom for greater achievements both for yourself and FC Barca..
