El Nacional: Milan considering 2024 bid for Barcelona-owned forward

By Oliver Fisher -

Barcelona are planning for life without Ansu Fati and AC Milan seem to be one of the clubs keen on making an offer in 2024, a report claims.

El Nacional report that Barca boss Xavi does not have much trust in the abilities of Fati, and thus the decision was made to loan him to Brighton for the season where he now hopes to recover top form and show why he was and is such a highly-rated talent.

He has scored one goal under Roberto de Zerbi thus far, and the 20-year-old forward wants to dispel doubts that he can become one of the leaders of the project at Barcelona. The signing of Joao Félix, the emergence of Lamine Yamal and the upcoming arrival of Vítor Roque put that in doubt.

Barca consider Ansu Fati to be sellable and there are three clubs keen on him, the first of which are Sevilla. Their director Víctor Orta believes that he is a gamble worth taking, and the club have pursued him for some time.

In addition to the Andalusians, Milan and West Ham United are also keeping an eye on Ansu and are considering presenting an offer in 2024 to acquire his services on a permanent basis, but the asking price is €30-40m.

        1. No, I would lean more to the side of the big picture of the club. The new stadium is a huge expense, how much of this cost is leveraged on the club and the very clear point made by the owners- they will only spend within reason. That means, where the club is every year and if the club keeps on progressing as far as last season in the UCL. The budget could keep getting bigger to the sum of 80-90 Million. But as I said within reason, so as we cannot tell what the future is going to be like, I could highly see the likely hood of Leao going for over a 100 Mil in order to fund this team. The team has to, and I use the word has to with great emphasis. This team has to keep performing through the construction and when the door open for the new stadium. This is essential for the stadium to attract more money for the team and the eventual time when the owners want to sell. More money is good for the team and thus that is good for the fans and the owners.

  1. If they decide to sell Leao for a sum near 150mil then around 30-40 could be used for Fati and 110ish mil plus dedicated transfer budget can be spend for good cf, cb and rb

  2. Leao’s body language on the field is increasingly becoming that of an entitled superstar who feels like he can do whatever he wants, play as poorly as he likes, and it’s all ok because nobody is going to ever take his spot on the left wing.
    In the match against Dortmund, he lost possession TWENTY TWO TIMES.
    He had only a 68% pass completion record (only Pobega was worse at 48%)
    And yet time and again, Milan went down his left side. Leao had the most touches of any Milan player, and had ZERO shots on goal.
    THAT is why Milan couldn’t score.
    And that is why Milan needs to sell him next season for as much money as it can, before the rest of the world discovers that he’s become too infatuated with himself to work hard at being the best any more.

  3. I wouldn’t invest in Fati who is overrated. I would sell Leao next season for 150m. Move Pulisic to the LW. There we would have Pulisic and Okafor at LW.

    Buy a top striker like Alvarez from Man City, Nicholas Jackson from Chelsea, Terem Moffi from Nice, Sesko from Leipzig or poach Oshimen from Napoli if possible.

    I would also add another RW like Bakayoko from PSV or Noni Madueke from Chelsea on loan with option to buy since he isn’t getting much playing minutes currently.

    For me Giroud and Leao can go. Both are holding Milan back. Leao losses the ball so much and he doesn’t track back to help the defense.

    A team cannot get far if they are dependent on one player. Milan is too over dependent on Leao playing well. That makes us too predictable and easy to play.

    If Milan management is smart they capitalize on his sale.
