Desc On November 20, Barcelona academy director Patrick Kluivert made the perfectly sensible suggestion that Ansu Fati should drop down to the Blaugrana’s B team to secure more game time. Just three weeks later, Fati became the youngest goalscorer in Champions League history by netting the winner in a 2-1 victory over Inter at San Siro aged 17 years and 40 days old. It was further proof – as if it were needed – that the winger has ‘something special about him’, as former Barca boss Ernesto Valverde put it, and fully merits his place in the senior squad. Indeed, the Bissau-born teenager, who has already been capped at Under-21 level by Spain, has since become the youngest player to score twice in a Liga game, against Levante in January. Barca are wisely doing their best to play down the hype surrounding the fledgling forward but they are well aware of just how lucky they are to have beaten Real Madrid to the signature of a prodigious talent that is making the post-Lionel Messi era look far less frightening with his incessant record-breaking.

[Ansu Fati makes better start to Barca career than Messi with first Camp Nou goal. His father admitted on Partidazo de Cope last month that] Real Madrid offered me better conditions than Barcelona for my son.

[He said after Fati’s debut in the 5-2 victory over Real Betis] This is the happiest day of my life. When he told us he was being called up by Valverde I started to cry and my wife too. When he came on, we were on cloud nine. At six or seven, he came to Spain. I had come here before and I didn’t know he played football. They told me I was not aware of how good my son was and that he was dribbling by everybody
