Manchester United are reportedly throwing everything at Barcelona to try and get an Ansu Fati deal done. The report comes from Sport and says that United are bidding upwards of 100 million euros for Fati to come to England.

Now, let’s be clear here, there’s no way Barcelona are selling him for less than his 170 million euro release clause. There’s just no way.

Fati is in a somewhat strange place at Barcelona. He was given time in the first team and showed out, and now he’s seen a lack of minutes in the first team. Which has seen a few clubs come and inquire about him. Barcelona is coming to a point where they need to either give him a professional deal with consistent playing time or look to loan him out.
