Pablo Páez Gavira, 'Gavi has signed a new contract with Barcelona, the Catalan club finally confirmed on Monday evening.
Gavi was one of the stars of the U16s last season (Cadete A) and the club made penning him down to a new deal a priority this summer.
The attacking midfielder, one of the brightest prospects in La Masia, will go straight to the U19s (Juvenil A), skipping the U17s (Juvenil B), where he will work with coach Franc Artiga.
