Gavi’s name was mentioned more than once in Xavi’s press conference ahead of the clash with Sevilla. The young midfielder has become a revelation this season and it’s a priority for Barcelona to tie him down. He has a deal until 2023 with a 50m euro release clause. Right now many big clubs will be eyeing him up.
Barcelona have been working on the renewal for some time and Xavi was asked about it in his press conference.
“We have to renew him already, if we need we’ll get the money between us,” hoked the coach. “We can’t lose these type of players. They have to be the base of the future.
“I understand that the club are working very hard for Gavi’s renewal, that’s fundamental for the team.”
