The young Barca forward is not getting minutes and right now is not important for the club

Xavi Hernandez showed his anger after rumours over the future of Ansu Fati, but the reality is that the player's people are a bit worried about the lack of minutes he’s suffering. However, his agent, Jorge Mendes, has only limited himself to mentioning the interest of several European teams in the striker, and has frozen the whole issue until the end of the season so as not to interfere with the team's objectives and is convinced that Ansu's situation could turn around.

Mendes, who has a great relationship with Joan Laporta, told the sports department that there were clubs in a position to present very interesting offers for Ansu, and Manchester United would be one of them. Offers that, in the event that the player was not a key man for the team, would be a financial boost for the club. But it did not go any further. The two parties agreed to analyse the matter at the end of the season when the conclusions about Ansu's participation will be that much clearer.

This is not the first meeting between Mendes and Ansu's direct entourage and Barça to discuss his lack of playing time. They consider that the player is fully recovered after injury and that he needs more participation to get more playing time. But the reality is different and the striker has become the last attacking option in the rotation along with Ferran Torres. He is not a starter and this is noticeable in his performance due to the lack of security in his actions on the pitch.

It is likely that in the coming weeks, Ansu will have more visibility, especially in home games. And the challenge for the player will be to show that his performance is improving. Both Barça, the player and his entourage are keen for everything to go in the right direction and for him to explode again.

If not, Mendes will offer solutions and it will be both Barça and the player who will have to make a decision. At Barça it is scary to talk about a possible exit and Ansu still wants to succeed at Barça, although everything will depend on the minutes he gets. Mendes has not and will not force anything. He has only received interest and has passed it on as he has done with other players, although he knows that Ansu is a special case. The situation is ongoing and changeable.
