Barcelona teenage star Ansu Fati has switched his agent to Jorge Mendes having previously been represented by the brother of Lionel Messi.

As per Marca, the 17-year-old has now left the agency of Rodrigo Messi – who controlled his affairs from his first-team debut for the Blaugrana back in August 2019.

He is now the second Barcelona player to be under the control of Mendes, with Nelson Semedo his other clients while James Rodriguez is his only player currently at Real Madrid.
