Chelsea and PSG remains interested in Barcelona’s Gavi

Chelsea and PSG in race to signGavi

Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) are said to be interested in Barcelona midfielder Gavi.

Free-spending this summer, Chelsea have been particularly busy in the transfer market, while PSG is currently headed by former Barcelona manager Luis Enrique.

Enrique worked with Gavi while in charge of the Spain national team, giving the teenager his senior debut and calling him up to their World Cup squad in 2022.

According to the Spanish daily Sport, the two teams have been showing interest throughout the summer, although there is little prospect of a deal being reached.

Neither Gavi nor Barcelona were willing to deal, but Gavi’s possible lack of first-team minutes may increase the likelihood of a departure.

Gavi appears to be the guy who will make way for Ilkay Gundogan in the side coming season, after the German international came from Manchester City.

Gavi won’t be joining Chelsea or PSG this season?

With Frenkie de Jong and Pedri set to start under Xavi, Barcelona’s three-man midfield appears to be taking shape without Gavi.

With the signing of Oriol Romeu, Gavi’s position may be reduced, as the former Chelsea and Southampton midfielder may be utilised in a holding role for important games.

Gavi came off the bench for a 12-minute cameo in the weekend’s league opener against Getafe, replacing Gundogan, who began alongside new acquisition Romeu.

The 19-year-old appears to be content at Barcelona, as he just renewed his contract after appearing consistently for the second season in a row.

According to the source, Gavi’s only goal is to succeed at Barcelona, and he is anticipated to play more minutes at home, even though Xavi has a complete team at his disposal.

Following the recent news of Ansu Fati’s desire to depart Camp Nou, Xavi may be forced to give Gavi regular minutes in order to avoid a similar scenario.

Fati has stated publicly that he wants to leave Barcelona in pursuit of regular first-team play after falling down the attacking pecking order.
