Man Utd plotting $201M move for Barca starlet

Man United reportedly plotting $201M move for Barcelona starlet

This Blaugrana talent is seen as an alternative to Sancho, as a deal for the Dortmund ace looks more and more unlikely.

Man United are yet to make any key signings in the ongoing summer transfer window. Regardless, the Red Devils are on the hunt for reinforcements and are said to have their eyes on one of the most promising attackers in La Liga.

That man is none other than Ansu Fati, the teenage sensation who broke onto the scene at Barcelona amid their chaotic 2019/20 season. According to Mundo Deportivo, the Red Devils are closely following the 17-year-old in their search for both a creative and goalscoring winger.

Prior to the transfer window opening, the 20-time Premier League champions appeared destined to land Dortmund sensation Jadon Sancho. The Englishman has been a target for quite some time now, with Woodward eager to lure him to Old Trafford in order to reinstate the club at the pinnacle of English football.

However, their pursuit of the former Man City boy has grown complicated. While talks are not completely dead, a deal for Sancho grows unlikelier by the day. As a result, Fati is touted as an alternative to the Bundesliga talent.

The teenager is seen as one of the most promising graduates of Barcelona's famed academy, La Masia. An injury to Messi at the beginning of the 2019/20 campaign offered the attacker a spot in the squad and he dazzled, contributing to three goals in his first three games in the league. Throughout the season, he scored a total of eight times and notched one assist, which is impressive for a 17-year-old who made only 15 starts for the dysfunctional team that was the Blaugrana.

Interestingly, Man United are said to be open to paying Fati's release clause, which stands at a whopping $201M (€170 M). This might raise a few eyebrows among the club's fan base as everyone is under the impression that the main issue holding back a Sancho deal is a lack of sufficient funds. As a result, we recommend you take this report from Mundo with a pinch of salt.
