Renewal progress is being made. Gavi will sign a new contract with Barcelona following numerous meetings, comings and goings, pushes and pulls. He will remain at the club through 2026 according to the agreement reached between the two parties.
However, given that he has a lengthy break after playing in the Nations League with Spain, it won’t be finished until he returns to training on July 11. This week’s presentation will start with Kessie and Christensen.
One of the main issues was the pay because, while the club saw him as a future star, Gavi and his agent saw him as a key player at just 17 years old. For Xavi and Luis Enrique, he is now indispensable.
Although Barcelona is determined to increase Gavi’s pay in the near future, his contract will be slightly shorter than Ronald Araujo’s. Like Fati, Ferran Torres, and Pedri from Uruguay, he will have a 1 billion euro release clause.
Considering he was No. 30 the previous campaign, his number is uncertain. The No. 8 is free, but Pedri will have it. The 11 and 17 are also available. Soon, other numbers should be free as well, including 6, 12, 16, 16, 22, and 23.
