Man United are coming for Ansu Fati. The English club bid 100 million euros for the winger which was rejected by Barca's board but they want to come back with a bigger offer. The 17-year-old has a 170 million euro release clause and Barca won't sell him for less.
Barca have always backed Ansu, but his lack of minutes after his initial breakthrough has led to various clubs asking about him. Borussia Dortmund saw him as a successor to Jadon Sancho, who is set to leave this summer.
The Catalans think he should stay, with Ansu's people wanting him to have a bigger role in the first team. They told his people that the club will put him ahead of Ousmane Dembele. Ansu's people believe his time in the reserves and youth teams is up.
Barca are considering giving him a professional deal, increasing his salary and raising the clause to 400m euros. That would satisfy the player, who expects to have more chances even though Barca are looking to add Lautaro Martinez to the attack.
United are trying to strike now and lure the player away. Ansu wants to finish the season playing in the team, showing his quality. Barca are conscious of the danger but believe the player will stay because that's what he wants.
