Ansu Fati

Not even had a chance to watch him in any detail yet, but his name has been splashed all over the footy pages in the past couple of weeks, and not just in Spain.

Anyone had a good chance to watch him? Anything to merit the exorbitant hype, or is it just a sign of the times?

Can't wait for the rotund Barca fans to start getting his name on the back of their shirts

------------

a mate of mine at work calls himself a Barca fan, to be fair he does take his kids to watch them, obsessed with Messi... anyway, he's been telling me how good this guy is... says he's the new Messi

I was watching the game against Valencia. For a 16 yr old he's great and probably the lift Barca requires after things have been stale for them recently.

Another Bojan, me thinks.

I mean, he has lifted up the place but the hype should be tempered.

It's Barca...the kid is already a global name. You can't stop the hype but you can try to stop it from getting to his head.

Boyhood Liverpool fan.

Our 2021/22 attack of Sancho, Mbappe and Fati will be epic.

Hard to see our domination in Europe coming to an end.

I read he has a clause in his current contract, that he requested himself, that says Liverpool can buy him for £40m at anytime.

Yeah, just read that. Hopefully we'll let Barcelona develop him for a couple of years and then bring him in.

He might be able to keep Messi out of the team, but there's no way he replaces Mane.

Fair enough. It just seems to me that the sample size is ridiculously small for people to be going so far overboard. Unless your mate goes to watch their youth divisions, I really doubt he can have watched this kid that much considering he hadn't even made a single appearance for Barça B before his senior team début.

I'd also imagine that he may well have played these early appearances with the carefree abandon of someone who has no pressure riding on him at all. It's going to be interesting to see how he progresses now he's been flung into the spotlight.

Hopefully Barca don't renew his contract just so they can persuade him to remove that clause.
