The Catalan giants have revealed that they have come into terms with the 18-year-old Gavi on a new contract, which contains a €1 billion (£ 866 million) release clause.
With 10 caps since his 2021 debut, the midfielder, who is only 18 years old, has established himself as a regular for both his club team and Spain. Last season, Gavi made a big impression at Camp Nou as Ronald Koeman promoted him from the junior team to the senior squad.
Once making his mark in the Blaugrana XI, he drew comparisons to legendary Barca players Andres Iniesta and Xavi.
Following yet another strong showing for the national team earlier this summer, Spain manager Luis Enrique singled out Gavi for special recognition.
He claimed in June that (he’s like an erupting volcano. It’s quite challenging to resist falling in love with Gavi and every fan would like to watch him play).
With Premier League teams like Liverpool and Chelsea showing interest in the teenager, Xavi cautioned Barca management that there was no time to waste in renewing the Spaniard’s contract.
