It comes after the 17-year-old scored his first ever goal for the Spanish senior national team just days after making his debut, putting in starring performances for La Roja.
Fati – born in Guinea Bissau, but who now has Spanish nationality and also previously qualified to represent Portugal – scored and assisted on his first start for the Blaugrana in their 5-2 win over Valencia last September and his level of performance has generated a great level of excitement.
He ended last season with eight goals across 33 appearances in all competitions for the Catalan giants.
