“I have a lot of hope for him” Barcelona manager Xavi Hernández denies rumors of Ansu Fati’s exit from club

Barcelona’s number 10 jersey could be vacant again after Ansu Fati is looking for options for a potential move to the Premier League, but Xavi Hernandez believed it would be really unrealistic speculation.

Ansu Fati was considered among the futures of Barcelona after the Spanish forward showed promise since his promotion to the first team from the club’s ‘La Masia’ academy.

Fati was Barcelona’s main man prior to his injury which kept him out for the entire of last season and now the youngster is finding it difficult to break into the first team, thanks to Barca’s significant summer signings.

The successor of Lionel Messi has taken part in only seven games out of Barcelona’s last twenty despite being fit is an issue Jorge Mendes, the agent of Fati addressed to the manager Xavi Hernandez.

The Spaniard told his agent to look for options and if a good offer comes, he will be on his way while Arsenal remains interested following the breakdown of the Mudryk contract as well as Manchester United.

However, Xavi remained optimistic about the availability of Ansu Fati despite the unhappiness of the forward, and he assured that Fati will be with the team and have a proper game time when the right time comes.

“At the moment, nobody is transferable. The transfer market is over, I don’t know what we are doing talking about sales, we are playing for the season.”- Xavi Hernandez said.

“We are talking about the sale of Ansu, which has not been discussed in the whole month of January. I don’t understand it and even less so in the Barcelona environment. I have a lot of hope for him.”- He further added.

Barcelona is currently sitting on top of the La Liga point table and after getting knocked out of the UEFA Champions League, Xavi will be desperate to bring this trophy back to Catalonia and he will be hoping that Fati is a part of it.
