Messi heir close to parting ways with Barca…transfer fee at least ‘56.9 billion’
Ordination party is close to parting ways with Barcelona.
He was touted as the future of Barcelona. After arriving at La Masia from Sevilla, he rose to prominence through the age-group teams. He made his presence felt by scoring in his first two games of the 2019-20 season, when he was just 17 years old, and became the team’s ‘hero’ in the fourth round against Valencia with a goal and an assist. From there, he was given a steady stream of opportunities, scoring eight goals and providing one assist in 33 appearances, including cup competitions, marking the emergence of a ‘big star’.
The rest of his career took a bit of a turn. A long-term injury in the 2020-21 season prevented him from continuing the form of his debut year. He missed most of the games, making just seven league appearances and 10 if you include cup competitions.
But Barcelona showed a lot of faith in Fàtima. They gave him the number 10, a symbol of ace and Lionel Messi’s number.
As such, expectations were high. However, his subsequent performances did not live up to expectations. In the 2021-22 season, he suffered several recurring injuries that cost him chances and diminished his position. Although he showed flashes of brilliance whenever he came out, there was always the fear that he might be injured again.토토사이트
This season has been no different. While he hasn’t missed as much time due to injury as in previous seasons, he hasn’t been able to regain his form and has been pushed out of the starting lineup. In 48 games, including cup competitions, he has only seven goals and four assists, with barely over 1500 minutes of playing time.
This has led to transfer speculation. Barcelona’s financial woes have led them to list a number of players for sale, and Pati is one of them. According to Roger Torrejo of Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo and Ben Jacobs of CBS Sports, Bayern Munich, Manchester United, Arsenal, Liverpool, and others are interested in the player.
Nothing concrete has been finalized yet. Pati doesn’t want to leave Barcelona, where he was born and raised. However, things are slowly moving towards a sale. According to Spanish outlet Sport, “Everything points to a sale. The club wants a transfer fee of at least 40 million euros ($569 million). Pati wants to stay with the team, but his spokesperson wants the player to find a new club.”
