Zapping World Eleven Cristiano Ronaldo: Record numbers
Back on the front of the stage, Barça is once again playing the leading roles in La Liga. First in the championship, the Blaugrana currently have a five-point lead over Real Madrid, whom they must face in La Liga, but also during a highly anticipated double confrontation in the Copa del Rey semi-finals. A return to the forefront initiated with the comeback of Xavi Hernandez on the bench, on the investments of the summer (Lewandowski, Raphinha, Koundé, Christensen…), but also and above all driven by the young nuggets of the training center.
Manchester United will try Fati
In recent months, Ansu Fati, Gavi, Pedri and Alejandro Baldé have made their mark in the team, to the point of becoming for some indisputable starters. If this is the case for the last three cities, it is less so for Ansu Fati, 20, barred by competition and who must be confined to a substitute role. As proof, he was only lined up seven times in La Liga (two in the Champions League), but still has 30 appearances in all competitions (six goals, three assists). A situation that logically attracts the interest of other teams, including Manchester United, as reported by the daily Sport. The Catalan media explains that the Red Devils could try their luck this summer, but the road promises to be long. The player is under contract until June 2027 with the Blaugrana, and has an impossible clause of one billion euros. However, the newspaper specifies that in the event of an offer deemed satisfactory, Barça will not close the door to discussions, but will above all be attentive to the will of the player. A file that promises to be very, very complicated, but not impossible.
To sum up
Barça would have received advances from Manchester United for their young nugget Ansu Fati, the club could leave the door open in the event of a big offer. As a reminder, he has a release clause of one billion.
