Xavi Hernandez has Gavi high on his list of priorities in the second half of the season as Premier League giants Liverpool are reportedly monitoring to swoop in the starlet
Gavi has risen through the ranks of La Blaugrana this season, after making his first team debut in August and earning his first Spain cap in October, becoming the youngest player to represent La Roja at senior level.
With his present contract at the Camp Nou ending in 2023, his meteoric ascent has compelled the club’s leadership to move on a big contract renewal and compensation boost.
Xavi is desperate to retain the 17-year-old on board as a key member of his exciting new club, but the Andalucian-born schemer is said to be contemplating his options.
The report states Barcelona are currently set to make a €1.5-2m annual salary offer to Gavi but Liverpool can offer €4m, plus a €10m signing on bonus at Anfield.
Barcelona has agreed to a multi-million dollar sponsorship arrangement with Spotify.
For €280 million, the Blaugrana sold their jersey sponsorship rights and Camp Nou name rights to music streaming giants Spotify.
The contract will last three years and will provide a significant financial boost to Barcelona. It is anticipated to contribute to an increase in Barca’s pay allotment for next year.
Gavi is high on Xavi Hernandez’s priority list for the second half of the season.
Gavi’s contract expires in 2023, and Barcelona has been in contract discussions with the teenager.
He is said to have rejected a first offer, but discussions are still ongoing, and Gavi, along with Araujo, is a priority, according to Sport.
