Amid claims Chelsea are ready to trigger Gavi’s release clause, Barcelona contract update emerges

An update on Barcelona’s efforts to tie promising young star Gavi down to a new contract has emerged this week.

Gavi impressing

There are not a lot of positives to speak of at Barcelona at present. The Catalan outfit are languishing down in 9th place in La Liga, and in danger of not making it out of the Champions League group stage.

One of the few positives for La Blaugrana, though, is the fresh crop of La Masia graduates being integrated into the senior side.

Ansu Fati and Oscar Mingueza are likely more well known to casual viewers of Barcelona.

Now, though, a new 17-year-old talent has emerged, and is already a regular feature for the Spanish outfit.

That man is Gavi, who was only handed his senior Barca debut at the start of this season, but has since notched 13 further appearances for his club.

Gavi is a central midfielder by trade, and with club legend Xavi Hernandez now at the helm, the teenager is no doubt set to learn a lot more in the coming months.

In fact, so impressive has Gavi looked this term, that he was even handed his senior Spain debut in October, and has now featured on four occasions for La Roja.

With such clear talent, though, is bound to come interest from top sides.

Recent rumours, for example, have hinted that Chelsea are keen to activate Gavi’s release clause, which is reported to currently stand at £42m:

However, transfer expert Fabrizio Romano has now reported that Barcelona are not worried by the Chelsea-Gavi rumours. This comes with talks quickly progressing to tie the youngster down to a new contract at the Camp Nou:
