African-born wonderkid Ansu Fati has emerged as one of world football's most exciting young players, and the 17-year-old has now opened up about his meteoric rise to fame.

Speaking to Barca TV recently, the Guinea-Bissau-born forward discussed what it was like to score his first goals for Barcelona, and also revealed his desire to stay with the club for his entire career.

"(Scoring) against Osasuna was a dream, my first goal with the senior team," Fati told Barca TV.

"And then (scoring again) against Valencia at the Camp Nou, I dreamt of that moment for many nights and it became reality. You can't believe it.

"I've always wanted to be here (at Barcelona). This was the idea from the start, and let's hope I can be here my whole life."

Fati has been tipped to follow in the footsteps of Messi – who some argue needs to leave Barca to be regarded as the world's best footballer – and has already broken a number of the Argentina superstar’s club records.
