The impressive display of Ansu fati With the national team against Ukraine, the illusion not only has overflowed among Spanish fans, but also among those of FC Barcelona, who see in the very young Spanish-Bissau-Guinean pearl the next Blaugrana mega-star.
At 17 years and 311 days, he became the youngest player to score a goal for the Spanish national team and also left several plays to remember, of those only available to the chosen ones. However, and even without a professional contract, his future worries the Barça fans, because the player ends his contract in two years, his termination clause is 170 million euros … and he has just changed agent, he has left Rodrigo Messi, Leo’s brother, to go with Jorge Mendes.
It was a year ago when Ansu Fati made himself known, when he was just 16 years old. Taking advantage of Messi’s injury, he broke into the Barça team with two goals against Osasuna and Valencia and performances full of impudence and quality.
Immediately the negotiations to review your contract and the player’s salary was increased considerably and his termination clause was also updated, which went from being 100 million euros to 170. Still without a professional contract, as soon as Ansu Fati became a professional, the clause would become 400 ‘kilos’. The duration was not modified, the contract ends in 2022 with the option of two more seasons.
Was a contract negotiated by Rodrigo Messi with Josep Maria Bartomeu, but in August news broke that may be important, as Ansu Fati decided to change his agent: he left Messi’s brother to go to Gestifute with him ‘superagent’ Jorge Mendes.
“He’s happy at Barça,” Ansu Fati’s father told Cadena Cope on Sunday night, but the truth is that Jorge Mendes’ fame as a tough negotiator is well known. Without a professional contract yet, Bartomeu opens another front of vital importance to achieve the renewal of a player for which several clubs would be willing to pay the 170 million of the clause.
its role in Ronald Koeman’s project is key in the future of Hispano-Guinean. Ansu Fati barely had a leading role with Quique Setién and now has doubts about the role that awaits him with the new coach, even more so with the rumors about the possible arrival of Memphis Depay, a Dutch player who occupies the same situation.
