Gavi Takes The P**s Out Of Three Switzerland Players In Filthy Run From His Own Box

Barcelona star-boy Gavi took the absolute p**s out of Switzerland tonight with a filthy run that started out in his own box.

The 17-year-old has quickly emerged as one of the most exciting youngsters in world football and the latest gem to come from Barcelona's famed La Masia academy.

Fast-tracked into Luis Enrique's Spain squad, the midfielder dropped a masterclass against Portugal and then followed that up by becoming La Roja's youngest ever goalscorer against Czech Republic.

And in Thursday's 1-0 win, Gavi was producing more magic yet again. In the first half of the UEFA Nations League clash, Gavi regained possession for his side in his own box.

He could have cleared straight away but with such supreme confidence, Gavi casually flicked the ball over Xherdan Shaqiri's head and then had a little touch with his own noggin.

Advancing with the ball, he jinked in between another two players - one of which was Granit Xhaka - with mesmerisingly quick feet and won his team a free-kick.

It was a stunning piece of play from Gavi, who is a seriously special talent.

The absolute cheek to juggle with the ball in his own box at the age of 17 is incredible and already stylistically he looks to be in that Xavi and Andres Iniesta mold.

Barcelona are well aware of what a gifted player they have in Gavi and are in the process of trying to nail him down to a five-year contract.

The deal would also include a whopping a €1 billion release clause, highlighting how highly rated he is.

At the moment, Gavi's release clause is just £43 million and it has been reported that he wants to quadruple his wages to €4 million in the first year of his new terms.

Liverpool have been heavily linked with the former Real Betis youngster and are said to be monitoring developments closely.
