Barcelona News Transfer: As reported by Sportsbible, Liverpool is keeping close tabs on Barcelona star midfielder Gavi this season. Jurgen Klopp is interested in signing the young Spanish star for just £43m.
Gavi is currently playing under a short-term contract with Barcelona. This means that his contract is active for just one year with a cheaper release clause.
Barcelona is trying to convince Gavi and his representatives to sign a new contract. This could tie him to the club for years and his release clause will rise to a mammoth £1 billion.
But right now, things are not under their control and Liverpool wants to exploit such an opportunity. Klopp believes that this is an excellent market opportunity for the club and they should have a go in this deal.
Liverpool has tracked Gavi since his rise to stardom and has seen him progress so well under Xavi. He has been playing smoothly with Pedri beside him, and both of them have been deemed the future of the club.
However, with the midfielder’s future hanging by a thread, it’s quite natural to see such rumours linking up. Xavi has insisted that the club should intensify its attempts to hand over a new contract and ward off potential suitors.
Barcelona News Transfer: Liverpool Trying To Lure Gavi By Providing Him More Wages
Barcelona insists that Gavi is not for sale but Liverpool is trying to lure him. Gavi currently earns £1m worth of wages per year at Barcelona but he desires to raise that sum.
Liverpool is ready to offer him a salary worth £2m per year. However, Gavi wants it to be increased to £4m per year and then a further increase by £2m as he moves into his second year.
But with Barcelona facing severe financial issues, they would not provide such an astronomical fee. With Frenkie de Jong leaving the club, it could leave some space in their financial books. They would then plan to use it to increase Gavi’s wages in order to ward off Liverpool.
