On December 4, Barça officially announced Ansu’s armor. He economically improved his contract, which expired in 2022, with the possibility of extending it two more seasons, until 2024. His termination clause went from 100 million to 170 million, but that will change soon. As soon as he becomes a player of the first team, very soon, Ansu will have a clause of 400 million euros.In the background is the European Championship. With two games in the U21, Luis Enrique has admitted that they watch the player, a process that has already started the National Team in the era of Robert Moreno. It might seem hasty, but Ansu is not going to be scared to keep breaking records. It seems that, with all the world’s reserves, a star has been born. The process of Ansu deludes in the club. It is burning the stages well. All with a lot of determination. Ansu wants to arrive and at the club they are willing to give him the tools he needs. The fundamental, control your media boom. At the moment, the player, who still has a record of the subsidiary, maintains his customs. Spend time with young people your age who are halfway between Barça B and Juvenil. With 17 years old, control all the temptations that are going to approach now Being a relevant player can be the most difficult for the club. That is why, in part, it will be important to protect it. Quique Setién’s phrase (“Dembélé is going to leave”) had created a strange suggestion in the surroundings of Barça. As if there were guarantees with a player who has shown himself crystal and who, when he has been in shape, has been irregular, erratic and has been far from being a player of 140 million euros or far. And while everyone seemed to be waiting for Dembélé (which hastens his recovery and could be discharged before Thursday), Ansu Fati, 17 years and 96 days, shook the Camp Nou again with an impressive demonstration of talent. Without the intention of falling into the precipitation, the boy smells like a star.Ansu played his best game with Barça against Levante. In addition to the two goals, he finished five times at goal, generated three scoring chances on his own and gave 109 of 116 correct passes. Setién also highlighted his defensive work. It is evident that, within the field, he is a much more mature player than his age indicates. He almost always makes good decisions and everything he does makes sense and evil well understood in the field. He plays when necessary, overflows when there is one against one of course and, above all, and what is most important for his progression in Barça, it is understood with Messi and the Argentine believes it. His connection in the first goal reminded the one that the Argentine had with Neymar. “I’ve been watching it for many years,” he said after the game. Ansu as if to see what could be understood with Messi with his eyes closed. His connection with the Argentine goes beyond the grass. Leo is sponsoring his first steps and Rodrigo, the brother of Argentine crack, has become one of the Guinean’s trusted advisors.
