Xavi Hernandez rubbishes Ansu Fati transfer rumors

After a lack of game time at Camp Nou, the Spanish winger has been linked with a move to Premier League. However, Xavi rubbishes the claim of the departure of a player who has only made 7 starts for the Catalan club this season.

It was reported earlier that Manchester United, Liverpool, and Arsenal are interested in

Ansu Fati

, who has recorded three goals and three assists in La Liga this season.

Ahead of


's Sunday La Liga game against Villarreal, Xavi told his press conference:

"We expect a lot from him, I have blind confidence in him.

"I have it with everyone. We have been shaping the squad based on what I wanted.

"I have confidence with everyone and especially with Ansu. He is a player for the present and for the future. He has to have patience and give everything when he comes in, which he is doing.

"At this moment there is no one transferable. The market has finished, I don't know what we are doing talking about sales, we are playing the season.

"We are talking about the sale of Ansu, who was not talked about all month in January. I don't understand it and even less in the Barcelona environment. I have a lot of hope for him."

On their Europa League tie against

Manchester United

on Thursday, Xavi added:

"There is no priority, we want to win the titles for which we compete. The most important game is always the next one."

Sergio Busquets

is yet to renew his contract with Barca amid interest from Inter Miami.


With Busi there will be no problem,"

Xavi said.

"He knows that he is extremely important. He is a living legend and his personal decision will mark his future. Only he decides.

"We go as the president [Joan Laporta], Busi and I and there is a very good vibe. It will depend on Busi, what he wants to do."
