It was reported by the Spanish newspaper Sports world that Ansu Fati would have aroused the interest of some European giants after spending more time on the bench than playing for Barcelona. Among those interested, the Bayern Munchen would be the club that most wanted to count on the player. However, German journalist Christian Falk has denied the rumors.
It is NOT TRUE ❌ that @FC Bayern is trying to sign Ansu Fati (20) @FC Barcelona this summer

In the denied rumor, in addition to Bayern Munich – which would be willing to pay 70 million euros (R $ 389 million) for the player -, Arsenal, Tottenham and Manchester United would also have probed the situation of the 20-year-old who wears the number 10 shirt from Barca. With a contract until 2027, the Catalan team can arrange a good sale for the athlete, if you are interested in negotiating him.
Javier Tebas, president of La Liga, said that Barcelona will exceed the salary cap by more than 200 million euros (R$ 1.1 billion) for the 2023-2024 season. Thus, the club will have to clean up the squad if they want to avoid financial complications and even fines.
Ansu Fati, despite his potential and young age, cannot – largely due to successive injuries – repeat the performances he had when he emerged for football, in 2019, under the command of Ernesto Valverde. The young player’s irregularity has been worrying Barça fans.
The Spaniard born in Guinea Bissau has, so far, played 89 games for Barcelona, with 25 goals scored and nine assists. Ansu fati is currently valued at 80 million euros (R$ 444 million) by the website Transfer market.
