Barcelona board divided over sale of Man Utd target

The future of Barcelona prodigy Ansu Fati remains uncertain according to reports from Spain. It is claimed that the club’s board are split regarding whether to cash-in on the talented teenager this summer. 

Fati was the subject of a transfer bid by Manchester United with the Catalan giants turning down two offers of €100 million and €150 million. 

ABC reports that the decision to refuse the offer has caused a split in among the board who are facing an active debate in whether it was the right decision. 

The Camp Nou outfit are facing a potential shortfall of €70 million due to the Covid-19 impact and failure to raise funds from transfers this season. 

Barcelona have struggled to sell the likes of Ivan Rakitic, Phillips Coutinho and Rafinha in recent months which have affected their finances. 

It is understood that some of the board members believe that the sale of Fati would help cover their debts. The talented forward’s contract currently carries a buyout clause of €170m.
