Report: A player that Man City wants with a release clause of £866 million could now be sold for £120 million, and Guardiola is very interested. What’s going on?
It is said that Barcelona might have to sell a big asset in 2024 in order to get more money.
Gavi is one player who could be sold, and TEAMtalk says that a fee of £120 million could be enough to get the Spain star.
The Barcelona No. 6 has a release clause in his contract that allows him to leave the Camp Nou for £866 million. So, even though £120 million sounds like a lot, it would be a pretty good deal in this case.
Plus, TEAMtalk says Guardiola really likes Gavi. Some people think that if Barcelona sold the 19-year-old, Guardiola would be the most interested boss in Europe.
It’s possible that Chelsea will offer more than Manchester City for the teenager if he becomes available.
Todd Boehly has already spent a lot of money to bring some of the best young football players in the world to Stamford Bridge, and the American would be ready to act if Gavi became available.
Man City needs to make a bid for Gavi
If Barcelona does have to sell Gavi, Manchester City should use that to their advantage.
You could say that Guardiola doesn’t need another central midfielder at the Etihad Stadium. That’s true right now, unless Kalvin Phillips leaves, but chances like this don’t come along very often.
Gavi has scored 25 goals for Spain and won the La Liga title. He has the ability to win the Ballon d’Or one day and has already done a lot at the age of 19.
Manchester City must move if they are given the chance to sign Gavi from Barcelona.
