Despite Chelsea’s efforts to sign Gavi from Barcelona, the 18-year-old midfielder has confirmed that he has no intention of leaving the club this summer. Gavi is already an important part of the Barcelona XI, but an ongoing contract issue has left his long-term future at the club uncertain. The former youth team player recently signed a contract extension which required him to be registered in the first-team squad. However, La Liga cancelled his registration due to Barcelona being unable to comply with salary cap limits. As a result, Gavi has remained on his old Juvenil A contract, meaning he could be available on a free transfer this summer. Chelsea have held talks with the player and his family about a possible move to Stamford Bridge, but Barcelona head coach has privately spoken to Gavi to reassure him that he remains a vital player under him despite the uncertainty. Gavi has underlined his commitment to the club and remains focused on Barcelona. Despite off-the-field issues, Barcelona director of football Mateu Alemany has insisted that Gavi is going nowhere and will honour his contract.
