According to SPORT, negotiations have already started that could lead to FC Barcelona selling Ansu Fati to Saudi Arabia for the upcoming campaign.

Four of the leading teams in the Saudi Pro League were taken over by the government-backed Public Investment Fund (PIF), which also acquired Newcastle United in late 2021.

Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema, and Neymar have all chosen to continue their careers in the Middle Eastern competition, and their clubs have already begun preparing for next summer when their European rivals will be eager to offload undesired players in order to strengthen their teams.

SPORT claims that Saudi Arabia has made the “first moves” towards acquiring Ansu Fati. Informal discussions with the player’s retinue are currently underway and certain individuals in the 20-year-old’s close-knit group are amenable to the idea of a move to the Kingdom.

According to reports, Fati doesn’t currently envision himself leaving European football, although things could change between now and June 30, 2024.

As was frequently observed in Catalonia under Barca head coach Xavi Hernandez, the La Masia pearl’s loan at Brighton expires on the same day, and the Spain international is having a difficult time breaking into Roberto De Zerbi’s starting lineup.

Prior to this term, Fati had promised to compete for a spot in the Blaugrana starting lineup, but he later changed his mind and sought out a temporary assignment elsewhere.

If Joao Felix has been officially acquired from Atletico Madrid, there may be more competition when he comes to his childhood club, in along with players like Lamine Yamal, Raphinha, and Ferran Torres.
