Gavi pledges Barcelona allegiance despite interest from Chelsea amid Lionel Messi’s homecoming speculation

Gavi has told Barcelona of his decision to stay at the club despite interest from abroad and contract issues.

According to Sport, manager Xavi informed Gavi that he is an important part of Barcelona’s future. Due to persistent contract concerns, the midfielder was expected to be released in June.

Gavi signed a long-term contract with Barcelona in September, but registration complications caused by the club’s severe financial situation stopped the deal from becoming official. The uncertainty surrounding his future has opened the door to other suitors, including Chelsea.

Why does Xavi think Gavi will stay?

Xavi, on the other hand, is unconcerned about the footballer’s future. And he isn’t concerned because he spoke with him personally to figure out what he believes firsthand.

The coach wanted to reassure the footballer and find out how he is dealing with the uncertainty caused by his contract predicament. Xavi discussed his future with a confident Gavi, who stated that he intends to stay at Barça for a long time. The player stated that he is happy with his role in the squad and that his only worry is that his predicament be resolved.

The coach informed him that he would be better off staying at Barça and that he couldn’t envisage a midfield without him. It should be noted that it was Xavi who granted him the starting spot this season.

The adherence to the four-midfielder concept in many games has made it simpler for Gavi to start so many games. Injuries to Pedri and De Jong have also made it difficult for Xavi to rest the guy from Los Palacios.

Xavi is said to have devised a long-term strategy for the midfielder. The Spanish boss, according to the article, has encouraged Gavi to enhance his goal-scoring production and be more clinical in the last third.

Gavi was back in the starting lineup against Atlético and came close to scoring. The midfielder had two clear chances that he did not take.

Although Gavi has been guaranteed that he will remain at the club, Barcelona must still determine the teenager’s contract position and will attempt to register him this summer.
