Sapin manager Robert Moreno has revealed the country’s football board are trying to convince man of the moment Ansu Fati to play for La Roja rather than Guinea Bissau.
The 16-year-old is currently having a breakthrough season for Barcelona. He became the Blaugrana’s youngest goalscorer in La Liga when he scored in Barcelona’s 5-2 win over Real Betis.
And also in Barca’s win over Valencia last Saturday, he set another new record by becoming the youngest player to score and assist in a La Liga game.
With him in this kind of form, the Spanish FA have begun moves to convince him to play for Spain instead of his country of birth, Guinea Bissau.
La Roja manager, Robert Moreno confirmed this in an interview with Movistar+ via Marca where Soccernet.ng got quotes from. “The people of the Spanish FA are working on it to bring Ansu Fati and then it will be the decision of the player,” Moreno told Movistar+.”The federation works to have the best players.”It is a joy for Barcelona, as he is a player who came through La Masia.”He has to be calm and I hope he is.”
However, for Fati to be qualified for Spanish nationality, his father will first need to be made a citizen of Spain.
