Rivaldo gives Barcelona Ansu Fati amidst United interest


Man United have not hidden their wish to land Barcelona star Ansu Fati as he is being linked away from the Camp Nou with his future unsettled.

The Red Devils are hoping to have a very busy summer transfer window with manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hoping to challenge the likes of Man City and Liverpool for the EPL in the new season.

There are fears that the Red Devils will not have their wish to land Ansu Fati with former Brazilian star Rivaldo urging the Spanish La Liga giants to be patient with the young starlet and not release him to United in a hurry.

Rivaldo, in his interview with Betfair said the youngster impressed in his game for Spain and scored a goal which has given the hint that he can become a regular at Barcelona and that must be considered by the Catalans.

He added that the new manager, Ronald Koeman is likely to give Ansu Fati a chance, adding that he is only 17 and should not be given the pressure to impress, rather he should be given time to breakthrough.

However, pundits have noted that Ansu Fati is not a priority for Man United, especially if they are able to sign up Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund.
