Gavi isn’t short of admirers, and there had been concerns that the Catalan club’s financial situation wouldn’t allow them to make a fair contract offer for the 17-year-old Spain international.

   Laporta wants Gavi to stay at Barca

Barcelona president Joan Laporta has claimed the club are close to agreeing on a new deal for young star Gavi. The midfielder has just one year left on his current contract, and the Blaugrana are keen to secure his future at the Camp Nou. Gavi isn’t short of admirers, and there had been concerns that the Catalan club’s financial situation wouldn’t allow them to make a fair contract offer for the 17-year-old Spain international. Speaking to reporters at a fan event, however, Laporta was confident that Andalusian’s future is with Barcelona. “We’re optimistic because we want Gavi to stay at Barcelona,” said Laporta. “We are very excited about him staying; he’s from our academy. The player and his agent, who we know, also want to stay at Barcelona. We are very close to reaching an agreement.”

Dembele is close to being a free agent

Laporta also spoke about another of hot issues at the club, including an even more pressing contract matter. Ousmane Dembele is close to being a free agent, but Barcelona have made him an offer to stay. “Dembele has an offer to stay, but we have no news that he’s accepted it,” said Laporta. “We haven’t had a reply from him.” It’s no secret that a top priority for Barcelona right now remains juggling their finances to be as competitive as possible in the transfer market and, therefore, on the field. Cost-cutting and additional funding sources are essential, but, again, Laporta is optimistic. “We’re working to turn Barcelona’s finances around,” said Laporta. “If members approve our proposals next Thursday, we’ll have good news, and we’ll clean up our finances sooner than expected.”

 

“Amongst other things, we’ll be able to strengthen the professional teams and regain a degree of normality. The club was in a critical condition.” The club aims to make new signings, even if they have to be more astute than ever, given the financial restrictions. However, Laporta wouldn’t be drawn on names and refused to talk about Robert Lewandowski when asked.
