Liverpool, Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United all reportedly lodged bids for Ansu Fati before he penned a new contract at Barcelona.
The 18-year-old forward has agreed a fresh deal to stay at the Camp Nou outfit until June 2027, with the club inserting a €1bn (£846m) buy-out clause.
Prior to the renewal being confirmed, the Spaniard was strongly linked with a transfer away from Catalonia with several of Europe’s elite clubs said to be keen on snapping him up.
Now Spanish outlet COPE have claimed that the Reds, Les Parisiens and the Red devils all made offers for the youngster, which encouraged the La Liga outfit to act fast in tying him down.
The report goes on to state that the trio of sides all offered salaries worth double what Ansu will earn at Blaugrana.
The Spanish prodigy became the second-youngest Barcelona player ever when Ansu made his debut aged 16 years and 298 days and Fati has since made 48 appearances for his team, scoring 15 goals.
Meantime, Raheem Sterling has been mentioned with a move to Liverpool as the Anfield side consider re-signing the Englishman.
As per Bild’s Christian Falk, Liverpool and Paris Saint-Germain are interested in landing the 26-year old star, who has fallen below the pecking order at the Citizens.
Still only 26, Raheem would be a decent investment for his former club. However, it remains to be seen if Pep Guardiola’s side will sell to a direct rival.
