It turned out to be a double delight for the FCB fans last evening, as soon after their team registered their first UCL victory of the season over Dynamo Kyiv by the margin of one goal which keeps them in the hunt for a place in Knock Out stages, their new talisman agreed upon a contract extension.
Fati is a product of La Masia, he joined it in 2012, and since then has progressed through the training circuits to youth teams, before finally making his first-team appearance only 2 years ago at the tender age of 16. After that, he has broken several records. He became the second-youngest Barcelona payer to ever debut for the first team, following which he became the youngest goalscorer in La Liga only a week later when he netted the ball against Osasuna. With several more records to his name, like the youngest to record a goal and assist in the same game and becoming the youngest to score in a UCL game, Barcelona is looking at him with some very high hopes.
Recently the club has been in a muddle. Ever since the 8-2 defeat by the hands of Bayern Munich in the 2020 UCL semi-finals, Barcelona has not been the same. In the following year, they made some great reshuffles in their squads, which backfired big time. Their lowest point came in 2021 when they failed to renew the contract with Lionel Messi due to some financial issues. As a result, now they are looking to build up a new star from La Masia and Ansu Fati although early in his career fits in the role.
