Spanish giants Barcelona would reportedly only sell African-born winger Ansu Fati, who inherited Lionel Messi's No. 10 jersey, on one special condition.
Messi's 'Team' Responds To His Brother's Bizarre Barca Rant
According to Sport, the Spain international is unhappy about his lack of playing time this season so far since recovering from an injury that left him sidelined for the majority of the previous campaign.
While Fati has not had further fitness issues this term, head coach Xavi Hernandez has preferred to use the 20-year-old from the bench, with the youngster having completed 90 minutes just once in LaLiga this season.
It has been claimed the Guinea Bissau-born player's future at the Catalan club appears uncertain amid rumours of interest from Premier League giants Manchester United.
The Red Devils' reported admiration for Fati has been corroborated by transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, who believes Erik ten Hag's side is paying close attention to the No. 10's situation in Spain.
Barca, however, will not initiate the potential future sale of the La Masia graduate as they would rather wait for the player himself to decide his future.
