€1,000m release clause: Arsenal interest in Barcelona youngster

Ansu Fati’s situation at Barcelona is a topic of discussion in the football world, as his lack of regular playing time has caught the attention of several top European clubs.

Despite being a highly-rated prospect, Ansu has only started seven of the 19 La Liga games he has played in this season due to formation preferred by Xavi Hernandez.

Still, Ansu’s impressive goal-scoring rate of a goal every 58 minutes during the first half of January has not gone unnoticed outside of Spain.

The interest from Bayern Munich, who are said to lead the way, along with four English clubs (two of whom are Arsenal and Tottenham), is testament to Ansu’s talent and potential.

However, with a contract at Barcelona until 2027 and a termination clause of €1,000m (that’s not a typo), it remains to be seen if the Spanish-Guinean striker is even able to leave the club.

Xavi has expressed his trust in Ansu, asking for patience and time for him to develop and reach his full potential.

Ansu has all the attributes to be a top striker, with pace, skill, and a good eye for goal. He has also shown that he can be a valuable asset to the team, especially when Robert Lewandowski was unavailable due to suspension.

He is currently valued at around €50m and is represented by Jorge Mendes.
