Spain FA want wonder kid Fati to represent La Roja
- He could be included in Spain squad for the U17 World Cup in October.
- His father has applied for Spanish citizenship, however, the procedure may take time.
- Portugal FA could also make a claim for Fati.
Ansu Fati's sudden rise hasn't gone unnoticed in Spain. The Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) have allegedly accelerated the legal process of the youngster's nationalization. According to Madrid-based Diario AS, they want the 16-year-old to represent La Roja U17s during this October's World Cup in Brazil.
Fati has been living in Spain since he was six. However, he is under 18 which means he cannot apply for the Spanish citizenship himself. He can only accept it following his father Bori's nationalization. AS claim Bori has recently applied for a Spanish passport but the procedure may take some time.
AS also claim Fati would like to represent Spain rather than other counties. He was born in Guinea-Bissau which is a former Portuguese colony. That means Portugal FA could also make a claim for the talented youngster.
