According to El Nacional via CaughtOffside, Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is willing to pay €50million for Barcelona wonderkid Gavi.
The 17-year-old midfielder is already involved in Barcelona’s first-team and looks like he has a big future ahead of him.
The 17-year-old broke into the Barcelona team at the start of the campaign and quickly earned a call-up to Luis Enrique’s Spain squad, astonishing observers with his fearlessness and technical quality.
Gavi’s current Barcelona deal expires in the summer of 2023 and has a release clause of €50million which Chelsea are willing to trigger.
Barcelona are currently in negotiations with the 17 year old to extend his contract beyond 2023 amid interest from Chelsea and have full confidence that they’ll get the deal over the line, just like they’ve done with Pedri and Ansu Fati.
