Liverpool is reportedly ‘ready’ to offer FC Barcelona youngster Gavi €9 million per year, according to sources.
At the start of the 2021/22 season, the 17-year-old earned his senior debut for the Spanish giants.
In total, the midfielder appeared 47 times for Barcelona in all competitions. In La Liga, he made 28 starts.
Gavi debuted for Spain at the senior level at the end of the season. Since October, he has been capped eight times.
In the UEFA Nations League earlier this week, the teenager scored his first international goal as Spain drew 2-2 with the Czech Republic.
His current deal, which includes a €50 million release clause, is set to expire in 2023.
Barcelona is desperate to extend his contract beyond the 2023/24 season. Liverpool is said to be a ‘major threat’ to the La Liga club, according to reports from last month.
‘Gavi has at least two Premier League offers,’ according to Spanish outlet La Porteria, one of which is from Liverpool.
Reports claim that Liverpool are willing to pay his release clause. They’d also pay him an awesome wage’ of about €9 million each year.
‘Gavi and his entourage are very clear that they want to stay and ‘succeed at the Nou Camp,’ therefore this transaction is doubtful.
Mo Salah bags Player of the Year
Mo Salah won the PFA Players’ Player of the Year title for the second time on Thursday, having earned it in his first season with Liverpool in 2017/18.
Along with Mark Hughes, Alan Shearer, Thierry Henry, Gareth Bale, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Kevin De Bruyne, he is one of seven players who have won the men’s trophy twice.
“It’s a great honour to win a trophy, individual or collective and this one is big so, very happy and very proud of that,” Salah said.
“This one is a really good one to win, especially because it’s voted by players. It shows you that you’ve worked really hard and you get what you worked for. I have my room with trophies in a cabinet and I made sure that I had another space for one more. I always keep space and just try to imagine that the trophies are going to come.
“When you get older, you feel like you’re more stable and you know exactly what you want from football so I’m just trying to really chill and help the team. That’s why I think I also won the playmaker because it’s like you’re more aware of the game, so you just try to make the people next to you better and try to make yourself better as well.”
