Ansu Fati – Early Life & Career
The early life of Fati was nothing like the luxurious life he is living now. His father, Bori Fati, who himself was an ex-footballer, decided to emigrate to Portugal.
From there, Bori decided to go to Marinaleda, where he worked as a taxi driver. After a while, Fati Sr. decided to move to Herera, where Ansu learned to play football.
A lesser-known fact is that Fati nearly joined the Real Madrid youth academy. However, the lure of Barcelona and its world-famous La Masia academy triumphed in the end.
The Barcelona winger’s quality was there to see for everyone, even before he reached ten years old. Before joining the famed La Masia, Fati developed his skills at the youth teams of Herrera and Sevilla.
But when Barcelona came calling in 2012 for the services of then 10-year-old Ansu, it was an opportunity too good to turn down.
Getting the chance to play in the same academy as the great Lionel Messi must have been a significant draw for the youngster.
He performed exceedingly well during his time with the youth team impressing the bosses of Camp Nou.
As a result, Ansu was promoted straight to the first team this year without making a single appearance for the Barcelona B team’s reserves.
