A departure or an extension? Ansu Fati’s agent was seen in Catalonia.
One of Joan Laporta’s priorities is to get young FC Barcelona stars to sign longer and more lucrative contracts in order to secure their future at the club, and Ansu Fati is high on that list.
Fati left to stay at Barça
The president is currently stepping up talks with several players, including Pedri and Gavi, as well as with Ansu Fati, whose agent, Jorge Mendes, has traveled to Barcelona to discuss.
Ansu Fati’s current contract expires at the end of the season, and although the club have an option to extend it for two years, Laporta wants to sit down with Mendes and discuss a new contract.
Not to miss
As in the case of Pedri, who finds himself in a similar contractual situation, the idea is to give Ansu Fati new terms that reflect his unexpected importance in the team, while extending his commitment to the club and increasing his buyout clause.
The player himself, despite having recently changed agents, is happy at Barcelona and only interested in staying where he is. After breaking through in 2019/20 under the aegis of Ernesto Valverde, his rise to become a key Blaugrana player and a Spain international has been swift.
