“Gavi’s new contract is on the verge of being completed – we are at the final stages,”
the president was quoted as saying by journalist Fabrizio Romano.
Their recent meeting on Thursday, June 16, more or less sealed the deal which will see the 17-year-old signing a five-year contract, taking his release from €50 million to €1 billion.
Xavi believes in his potential and has told the club Gavi is part of his project next season
Despite attracting interest from other top European Club, Gavi is now set to remain at Barcelona
As of today, while everything is verbally agreed upon
Romano says that the team is preparing the final paperwork to be signed soon
Gavi’s ongoing contract with Barcelona runs until 2023 and the main idea to enter extension talks was to avoid the mishap that disturbed Ousmane Dembele’s renewal
