FC Barcelona are considering multiple scenarios at the moment where they are able to generate substantial space in terms of finances. At the moment, a particular deal that favors the Catalan club from an economic perspective is a swap deal that involves young star Ansu Fati.

Presented by Jorge Mendes, Portuguese super agent, the deal in question involves two of his clients, Ansu Fati and Portuguese midfielder Ruben Neves, being used in a swap deal that would see the FC Barcelona and Wolverhampton Wanderers players exchange their respective clubs.

Moreover, the deal would also see Wolves offer up an additional €30 million alongside Neves for the arrival of Ansu Fati in exchange. Despite the Portuguese midfielder not being in any way the preference of Xavi Hernandez from a sporting perspective, the Barcelona board believes it to be a viable option simply due to its beneficial economic nature for the Spanish club.

Yet, as SPORT reports, the operation would only be able to go through if all parties involved are in consensus. As it stands, Ansu Fati himself is not.

The young Spaniard is unwilling to make the move to Wolves given that he reportedly does not believe it to be the right place or environment for him to relaunch his career, given that the objectives of a club like Wolves would not be too inspiring for a player making the move from a regular title-challenging club.

Should the player’s stance remain unwavering and he continues to be unwilling to make the move to Wolves, Jorge Mendes will look towards other alternatives.

The likes of Nico Gonzalez, Sergino Dest, or even Abde may be considered. Wolves demand a minimum of €50 million for Neves, which in straight monetary form is not something Barcelona can afford to leverage, especially on a player that Xavi Hernandez does not even consider the best alternative to his primary choice of Martin Zubimendi.
