Ansu Pati (20-Barcelona), who took over Lionel Messi’s (36-Inter Miami) number, is determined to stay with the team and fulfill his potential. He has been linked with interest from Paris Saint-Germain, the Premier League, Serie A, and Saudi Arabia.
“Pati is one of the main targets of Barcelona’s interest,” said Fernando Polo, a reporter for Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo, on Monday (Aug. 8), “He’s not a first-team player at Barcelona, so other teams are interested in him, and they watch him in England, Italy and Saudi Arabia. But the player is only thinking about staying at Barcelona.”
먹튀검증 This summer, Barcelona were willing to allow Pati to leave if the right offer came in. Fathi, on the other hand, wants to improve his form and fully realize his talent. During the preseason, he worked hard to get in shape. He scored a wonder goal in a preseason match against AC Milan in the United States and then scored the winner in the Johan Campeau Cup against Tottenham.
With one of his main rivals, Ousmane Dembele, 26, on the verge of a move to Paris Saint-Germain, there was even a “green light” for Pati. Nevertheless, Barcelona said they could not guarantee him a starting spot. More recently, Neymar (31-Paris Saint-Germain) has been linked with a return to Barcelona, making Pati a financial target.
“The coaching staff believe that Pati still needs time to recover,” the Polo reporter said. They have recommended a loan to the player, and a loan with a full buyout could be worthwhile. For now, nothing has been finalized.” According to local reports, Paris Saint-Germain, West Ham United and Al-Hilal are planning to approach Fathi.
“A Premier League club that failed to qualify for the UEFA Champions League (UCL) has offered 50 million euros ($72.2 million) to sign Pati,” Gerard Romero, a journalist familiar with the Barcelona situation, revealed on July 7. A very specific offer has been made to Barcelona, but it won’t be easy to change his mind.
Pati impressed upon his promotion to Barcelona’s first team in the 2019-20 season. However, his progress was halted in 2020 when he was sidelined for an extended period with a meniscus injury. In 2021-22, he took over the No. 10 shirt after Messi’s departure, but he hasn’t lived up to expectations due to the after-effects of his injury.
