Ansu Fati’s uncle has made a shock declaration about the striker’s future at Barcelona and has warned the Catalan giants the 20-year-old could leave the club.

The forward has only made three La Liga starts this season and has admitted this week that he wants to play more. Ansu’s father, Bori Fati, has also said his son needs to play regularly after putting his injury problems behind him.

Braima Camar, Fati’s uncle, has now shared his thoughts with RAC1 and revealed that he’s spoken to the Barcelona player’s parents who have offered an update on his situation.

“He is fine at Barça, but Jorge Mendes [Fati’s agent] has told the coach [Xavi] that if the boy does not play, he will change his team,” he said. However, Camar did go on to say that the striker is happy at the club currently “because he grew up there, he likes Barça.”

Fati’s talent is not in doubt but he has yet to consistently find his best form after a series of serious injuries that has seen him miss a lot of playing time over the last two seasons.

Barcelona now have a wealth of attacking options with Robert Lewandowski, Raphinha, Ousmane Dembele, and Ferran Torres around which means it is not easy for Fati to force his wayback into the team.

Fati’s agent may be hankering for a move but will be aware that Barcelona have locked down the youngster to a long-term deal. The striker signed an extension in October 2021 that runs until 2027 and contains a €1 billion buyout clause.

World Cup Woe For Fati
The Barcelona forward may have been hoping for some game time at World Cup 2022 but will likely have been disappointed after managing just two substitute appearances in Qatar. Spain are now out of hte tournament after being stunned by Morocco on penalties in the last 16.
