Ansu Fati has had a breakthrough season in the 2019/2020 campaign. For such a young player  to be vying for some minutes on the field of play with the fairly experienced Antoine Greizman and Ousmane Dembele one does not need telling as to how impressive the talented attacker has been.

His display has attracted some of Europe’s elite with Manchester United considering the 17-year old as a potential alternative to Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho.

Fear over the youngster’s exit have grown after it emerged that the red devils have tabled an offer for the Barcelona prodigy but the club’s director Xavier Vilajoana has alleviated those fears after confirming the club’s intention to hold unto the player.

‘For us, there’s no story with Ansu, we have never spoken about selling him,’ Vilajoana told Spanish outlet SPORT.

‘We won’t use players from the academy to make cash. In principle, we have no intention of selling the players we believe will make the first team.

‘I think he’s happy. He will be an important player in the coming years,’ Vilajoana added.

Fati has registered 5 goals in the 24 matches he has played for Barcelona in all competitions this season with one of the goals making him Barcelona’s youngest ever scorer in a match against Osasuna.
