Barcelona will sanction another loan move to the Premier League for Ansu Fati, with Roberto De Zerbi a fan of the 21-year-old.

According to a report by Spanish outlet SPORT, Ansu Fati will unlikely represent Barcelona in the 2024/25 season. Financial Fair Play issues mean Barcelona will sanction another loan move for the 21-year-old in the summer transfer window. Meanwhile, Roberto De Zerbi, a managerial target for Liverpool, is a fan of the youngster and will look to land him if he joins a new club.

The Rise and Fall of Ansu Fati

Ansu Fati has endured a topsy-turvy ride since breaking into Barcelona’s first-team squad. The Spanish international was the first player of the latest generation to establish a foothold in the senior group at the Catalan club. But his injury horrors have stunted his progress, with his stock plummeting in the last few years.

So, nearly half a decade after breaking into the Barcelona first team, Fati’s long-term future is uncertain. The 21-year-old is currently on loan at Brighton & Hove Albion, where he has four goals and one assist in 1,000 minutes of game time across 26 appearances. But Roberto De Zerbi admires his talent.

The Italian tactician batted for Fati’s addition to the Brighton squad last summer, preparing a plan to get him back to his best. But his fitness issues this term have meant that De Zerbi’s plan has not come to fruition. However, he is ready to take the Spaniard to a new club if he joins another club amid his links with Liverpool and Barcelona.

What Happens This Summer?

Meanwhile, Fati will likely leave Barcelona on another loan deal in the summer transfer window amid Financial Fair Play concerns. The reigning La Liga champions are struggling to balance their books, meaning they need to offload a few players before they can sign some.

The Catalan giants are planning another Premier League loan for Ansu Fati, contrary to recent claims of a potential permanent sale. With De Zerbi being a fan of the 21-year-old Spanish attacker, a move to the Premier League should be on the cards. Meanwhile, reports have linked him with Liverpool.

It will be interesting to see if Fati can gain admirers in the coming months by strongly ending the 2023/24 season. For now, Roberto De Zerbi wants a summer reunion with the Barcelona academy graduate.
