- His representative Iván de la Peña continues to be in contact with Mateu Alemany to close the extension of the young midfielder’s contract and the positions continue to get closer.
The renewal of Gavi (17 years old) by FC Barcelona is advancing day by day. After the last summit held last week, in which there was no agreement either, the parties admitted that they were closer. In the following days, the Andalusian footballer’s agent, Ivan de la Peña , has continued to speak with Barça’s director of football, Mateu Alemany . These are conversations aimed at ironing out formal differences over the latest proposal from the Barcelona club.
An offer that Gavi and his family have not yet validated but that already seems to be in line with what they expect to stamp their signature on their new contract. The current one ends on June 30, 2023 and its termination clause is 50 million euros. Barça wanted to extend his contract until 2027, with a clause of one billion euros, but the duration of the bond had yet to be agreed upon.
In any case, the parties admit that the advances are happening and that there is optimism to be able to close, sooner rather than later, the continuity of a footballer who has thrown down the door of the locker room of the Barça first team and also of the Spanish team with such only 17 years old. Gavi ‘s will to continue is winning over the siren songs of big European clubs like Liverpool , Chelsea and Bayern .
