Ansu Fati is reportedly close to agreeing a new long-term contract to stay with Barcelona, despite interest from Manchester City and Manchester United.

Ansu Fati is allegedly close to agreeing a new long-term contract to stay with Barcelona.

The 18-year-old has recently been linked with a move away from Camp Nou, with one report suggesting that the forward has been offered to some of the top clubs in Europe including Manchester City and Manchester United.

However, according to Marca, Fati has told his agent Jorge Mendes that he sees his future with Barca and he is now set to meet with the club's hierarchy for the second time to discuss a contract extension.

Fati's current deal has less that 12 months remaining, though both parties are confident that terms can be agreed quickly for a player who is regarded by the La Liga giants as a potential leader in the future.

The Spanish teenager, who has been handed the iconic number 10 shirt following Lionel Messi's departure, endured an injury-hit 2020-21 campaign and last featured for Ronald Koeman's side in the beginning of November.

Fati was still able to notch up five goals and four assists in 10 appearances across all competitions last season, and has also featured four times for the Spanish national team.
