Fati eyeing long stay with Barca

After breaking into the first team set-up this season, 17-year-old Ansu Fati is eyeing a long stay with LaLiga giants FC Barcelona.

Fati broke onto the scene earlier this season after the likes of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Ousmane Dembele were nursing injuries.

The 17-year-old has bagged two goals to his name and made his debut in the UEFA Champions League for the Catalan giants, while he is expected to represent Spain, despite being born in Guinea-Bissau.

"(Scoring) against Osasuna was a dream, my first goal with the senior team," Fati told Barca TV.

"And then (scoring again) against Valencia at the Camp Nou, I dreamt of that moment for many nights and it became reality. You can't believe it.

"I've always wanted to be here (at Barcelona). This was the idea from the start, and let's hope I can be here my whole life."
