Rumour Has It: Bayern Munich looking to pry Fati from Barcelona
The future of Ansu Fati at Barcelona appears to be increasingly uncertain.
Fati was a revelation when he first broke into the Barca first team, but has suffered several injury issues that have halted his momentum.
Even when fit, Fati has struggled to get into Xavi's side this season, featuring in 30 games but only nine times from the start, with six goals and three assists to show for it.
And reports are starting to emerge that vultures may be circling to offer the Spain international more regular football.
TOP STORY – BAYERN LEAD THE WAY IN HUNT FOR ANSU FATI
Mundo Deportivo reports that Bayern Munich are at the head of a queue of seven European clubs interested in making a move for Fati at the end of the season.
It is also mentioned that four of the seven potential suitors come from the big-spending Premier League, though only Arsenal and Tottenham are named.
The player only signed a new deal in 2021 that committed him to Barca until 2027, with a release clause of €1billion, but the continued absence of Fati in the starting XI even after Ousmane Dembele's latest injury is apparently a concern to the player's agent, Jorge Mendes.
