Gavi might have been on the losing side for Barcelona against Bayern Munich but he still dropped a jaw-dropping performance at the Allianz Arena.

The Blaugrana dominated the German champions for large spells but were not clinical enough and could not find the net.

Bayern did twice courtesy of Lucas Hernandez and Leroy Sane to make it two wins out of two in the Champions League so far.

Jamal Musiala was named Man of the Match for a superb showing but Gavi, the stunning talent on the opposite, had many salivating at the mouth with his display.

The pint-sized midfielder only recently turned 18 but was at the heart of everything good Barca produced.

The Catalan side have produced so many gems over the years through their famed La Masia academy and there's no denying that Gavi is the next special talent.

It's hard to not see shades of Andres Iniesta in the way he glides with the ball, the close control in tight spaces under pressure and ability to pick out a pass from nothing.

He put one on a plate for Robert Lewandowski, who really ought to have notched against his former side, while fellow midfield sensation Pedri was denied by Manuel Neuer's feet after lovely work from Gavi.

He's an utter joy to watch and proved he can hang with the very best. Barca know how good he is and acted swiftly after his breakthrough season last term.

Gavi has now penned a new contract until 2026 and one that includes a release clause of €1 billion.

An official event for the extension will take place at the Nou Camp on Thursday for Spain's youngest ever player and goalscorer.

It has been speculated that, in January, Gavi could receive the No.6 shirt famously worn by manager Xavi Hernandez - in what would be another move to show how valuable he is to Barca.
