On Wednesday, Barcelona revealed the list of numbers for the new season, after the closure of the summer transfer market, which saw the Catalan club award the legendary No. “10” that Lionel Messi was carrying to the young Ansu Fati, “18 years”.
Fati, born in Guinea-Bissau, began his career with Barcelona at the beginning of the 2019-2020 season and became the youngest player to score a goal for Barcelona in the Spanish League in August 2019, and in December of that year he became the youngest scorer in the history of the Champions League when he scored against Inter Milan in the group stage.
Last season, he scored Barcelona’s equalizer against Real Madrid in the Spanish league, becoming the youngest player to score a goal in the history of “El Clasico” matches between the two traditional rivals.
Fati chose to represent Spain instead of his home country, and scored a goal for the national team against Ukraine in the European Nations League, becoming the youngest player to score a goal for Spaniards in history.
