In such a scenario, the Catalan news source have revealed that Man Utd prepare to exploit the impasse to sign Fati from the Blaugrana.

In 2021, the youngster was handed the iconic No.10 shirt after the departure of Messi and was awarded a lucrative new deal worth £240,000 a week until 2027 (Football Transfers).

However, he was mostly on the treatment table in the last campaign and has mainly warmed the bench in the current season under Xavi.

The 20-year-old did not start any game in the Super Copa winning campaign but did find the net in the semi finals vs Betis. He has netted 2 goals in the Copa Del Rey but is yet to start in the competition.

On the other hand, in the La Liga, so far, the 7-capped international has only started 7 games and directly contributed in 6 goals (3 goals and 3 assists).

Sport claim Man Utd, who are in search of a striker, have the most serious interest in signing Fati and may start formal negotiations to secure him.

It is stated that United’s interest is already on the table. For now, Barca do not want to listen but the coming months could be decisive and a move is possible in the summer transfer window.

Ansu Fati can play on either flank and even as a center forward. Having already splashed a lot of cash on wingers like Sancho and Antony, should Man Utd move in to lure the Spanish attacker?
