Ansu Fati’s current deal with Barcelona runs until 2022, but the club is in no hurry to renew his contract as they have given priority to new signings in recent weeks.
Talks between the two sides over a possible renewal began months ago, and negotiations appear to be on track, with both sides ready to reach an agreement.
Barcelona considers Fati an essential part of the club’s future and is optimistic about the outcome of talks with the youngster’s representatives.
Fati is currently recovering from a serious knee injury that forced him to undergo surgery several times last season.
His renewal has been delayed, but Barcelona have not thought of any scenario that would see Fati leave the club despite the fact that negotiations are not considered a priority issue at the moment.
Blaugrana has given priority to signing free agents like Memphis Depay and Georginio Wijnaldum and removing some players to create finances.
