Man United ask about Fati
Ronaldo’s current agent is Jorge Mendes, who has a number of quality clients around the world.
One of these is Barcelona forward, Ansu Fati. The Spaniard burst onto the scene at the Camp Nou during the 2019/20 campaign, and does look set to be the next big talent to emerge from La Masia.
Unfortunately for Fati, he would suffer an injury in the early stages of the 2020/21 campaign, which has seen him out since November of last year.
The 18-year-old is, however, now back in training with the squad, which will come as a huge boost to Barcelona:

And, with Fati back on the mend, it appears that Jorge Mendes has been offering his client to clubs.
As per the Mail, citing Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo, it is thought that Mendes offered Fati around to a host of top clubs across Europe, including Manchester City.
However, the report also adds that Man United would asked about Fati during their negotiations with Mendes for Ronaldo:

Man United fans probably should not get too excited, though, with the DM adding that Barcelona are confident their wonderkid will pen a new deal.
Fait is currently in the final 12 months of his contract, but La Blaugrana do reportedly have an option to extend it by two years.
