It’s finally official, Barcelona’s Gavi has finally reached a contract agreement. And the details of the same will blow your minds away.
Xavi and the club have been completely supportive of the Spanish International and were always on the path to renewing but due to his age and a busy transfer window, his renewal got delayed.
The La Liga side wanted to renew him for 5-6 years but due to his age, they couldn’t offer him such a lengthy contract, however once he turned 18 the negotiations restarted and the club was able to reach an agreement as well.
Gavi’s contract details
The players has agreed to sign a three year contract. It will see him at the club until the 2026 season. What has actually got the world talking is the release clause of Gavi.
Barcelona has been stunned once by the French league 1 side PSG in 2017. That year they paid a shocking clause for Neymar Jr and acquired the player. Since then Barcelona has been clear about the clause they set for their star players.
Hence, like Fati, Pedri, and Aurajo, Gavi will also have a PSG proof clause of 1 Billion Euros. Since Gavi had already attracted a lot of attention from the likes of Liverpool, Bayern and PSG, Barcelona decided to make him foolproof.
When Koeman was at the club, there were reports that Barca might sell the midfielder for a high price and get their finances in order but since Xavi has arrived, Gavi has been a major part in his plans as he is starting most of the games under the coach. So there is no doubt that he is extremely talented and surely has the potential to mark a legacy at Barcelona like his idol Iniesta did. All in all, the hierarchy of the club needs to make an agreement soon cause if they don’t the Spanish International has many clubs to choose from if he decides to leave.
