Ansu Fati already has Spanish nationality and could be summoned with Spain for the U17 World Cup that is played in October. Everything indicates that it will come, which Barça will lose for a series of important meetings
Ansu Fati finally has dual citizenship and that means he can play with the Spanish national team. The forward, therefore, will go with almost total security with Spain to the U17 World Cup that is played this fall in Brazil. For him it is a great opportunity, but for FC Barcelona it is a task to lose the player for so many weeks.
The youth player has become an important player for Ernesto Valverde in recent weeks. The injuries of Leo Messi, Luis Suárez and Ousmane Dembélé forced the culé coach to pull the quarry. Ansu was one of the chosen and has not disappointed since debuting against Betis with the first team.
The injured trident is already recovered (Dembélé will be ready for next week) and that will cause Fati to stop counting so much. But despite that, Valverde already warned that both he and Carles Pérez have earned the minutes and would continue to count for these next weeks of competition.
His last two titles indicate that, today, and waiting for Dembélé to recover completely, the youth is the fourth front of the squad. He has advanced to Carles Pérez, who so far seemed to be ahead. This means that if nothing happens, you will have minutes, despite the return of Messi.
But the end call for the U17 World Cup changes
everything. Ansu could miss up to five Barça matches for attending the World Cup event with Spain. One of the games that could be lost would be the great Classic against Real Madrid on October 27. The World Cup starts on the 26th, so if it is summoned it will be lost for sure In addition, the Spanish team is concentrated a week before the start, which could not play the Slavia-Barça Champions League on October 23.
In addition to the Classic, Barça-Valladolid on October 30 and Levante-Barcelona on November 3 would also be lost. But if Spain falls into the group stage, the tip will return to Barcelona on October 3 and less shocks will be lost than expected. However, if the team continues to win matches and reaches the final, it could also not reach the match against Slavia on November 5, nor for Barça-Celta on 10.
