Ansu Fati signs for Brighton & Hove Albion on loan
FC Barcelona and the Premier League club reach an agreement for the loan of the player until 30 June 2024
FC Barcelona and Brighton & Hove Albion Football Club have reached an agreement for the loan of the player Ansu Fati until 30 June 2024. There is no option for a permanent transfer.
Ansu Fati will continue his footballing development in the Premier League after spending his formative years at Barça. The striker arrived at FC Barcelona as a 10 year old back in 2012 from the Sevilla youth set up and after starting with the U12A side he quickly progressed before reaching the first team.
Wearing the number 31 shirt, he made his debut in 2019 at the age of 16 in a league game against Betis. Six days later he scored his first goal for the Club against Osasuna in another league game.
Ansu Fati's statistics from that 2019/20 season showed the quality of the young forward. In that campaign he made 33 appearances, 15 as a starter, scoring eight goals and providing one assist. Furthermore, he set a string of records: the youngest ever starter in Club history and the youngest player ever to score and provide as assist in a league game amongst others.
In the 2020/21 season Fati was named officially as part of the first team and he took over the number 22 shirt. However, in what seemed destined to be the season in which he would consolidate his position as one of the top strikers in Europe, a knee injury and subsequent surgery forced him to miss the majority of the campaign.
Now wearing the number 10 shirt, the striker returned to action in September 2021 and since his comeback he has played 69 matches and scored 16 goals.
