Reports state that in the last summer transfer window, ex-Barcelona superstar, and current PSG striker, Lionel Messi prevented his club to sign Ansu Fati who currently plays for Los Blaugrana. Fati is one of the brightest superstars and among the best young talents of the current generation. However, Fati’s young career has been hampered in various phases concerning his injuries. But it is certainly not deniable that he is indeed a potential player, with whom clubs can make a long-term plan.
Sources confirm that the Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint Germain were very much interested in the young blood, with the significant motive of replacing their star footballer Kylian Mbappe. However, as per the Argentine’s demands, Paris Saint Germain cooled their interest in bringing Ansu Fati.
Messi not pleased with Ansu Fati
Reports state that Lionel Messi hasn’t been pleased with Fati’s decision to replace Jorge Messi as his agent. At present, the 19-year-old footballer is represented by Jorge Mendes, a Portuguese super agent. Sources also verify that Ansu Fati was all set to come to PSG, and he even packed his bags to go to the French capital. However, under Messi’s insistence, the game changed, and Fati signed a new contract with Barcelona FC.
All these happened in 2021, and Ansu Fati signed the new contract for his present club at Camp Nou in October 2021. However, Barcelona getting Fati retained is beneficial for them, as he is a talented youngster, with whom clubs can work on a long-term relationship.
Also, there’s a keen possibility that Lionel Messi might return to Barcelona, however, it is still far away from official confirmation. It is to be seen how the consequences arrive, and where does the future of Lionel Messi and Ansu Fato go.
