The club have not yet reached an agreement with the player's agent
Pablo Martín Páez Gavira, 'Gavi', and Barcelona are obliged to come to an understanding. The young midfielder wants to stay at the club and the club don't want to lose one of the most promising players in the world.
Ivan de la Peña, the player's agent, met with Mateu Alemany and Jordi Cruyff on Friday to continue negotiations over a new contract.
The meeting at the club's offices lasted half an hour. Both parties reaffirmed their positions and there were no significant advances. There will be another meeting soon.
Barça are offering a progressive contract. They want him to compromise on the first two seasons and then from the third year he will move up the pay ranks at the club. The delicate financial situation dictates the club's plans.
De la Peña, meanwhile, wants a deal similar to those signed by Pedri, Ansu and Araujo recently -- which is still seemingly less the contracts signed by new signings Franck Kessié and Andreas Christensen.
Let's see if there id news in the coming days.
