Barcelona reject €100m bid for Ansu Fati
Barcelona have rejected a €100 million bid for Ansu Fati according to stories by Spanish tabloids.
Reports say club president, Josep Maria Bartomeu received the stunning bid for Fati from a top European club.
Ansu Fati’s rise to stardom has been incredible, not so many players of his age get to share the pitch and dressing room with players like Messi and Suarez amongst others.
Barcelona are desperate to keep one of their prized assets especially because of the latest financial difficulties.
They believe that replacing the 17-year old will be tough despite the humongous fee they’ll get in return.
It is unknown which club submitted the bid for Ansu Fati but my gut feeling tell me it’s either PSG or Real Madrid.
However, PSG seem to have something Barcelona desperately want on their roaster.

The Spanish giants were planning a reunion for Brazilian superstar Neymar before the coronavirus pandemic reduced the club’s finances significantly.
Barcelona are ready to clear some “dead woods” in their squad to generate income and free up space for incoming players.
Ousmane Dembele, Ivan Rakitic and Vidal are top of the transfer-out list.
Barcelona rate Dembele highly but his attitude and injury record is a huge concern for the club.
They are also contemplating a swap deal for Miralem Pjanic in a move that will see Arthur Merlo move in the opposite direction.
Tottenham and Manchester United have shown interest in Rakitic recently.
