Liverpool Set To Trigger Barcelona Star's £50 Million Release Clause

Liverpool Set To Trigger Barcelona Star's £50 Million Release Clause

Liverpool are set to trigger Barcelona midfielder Gavi’s £50 million release clause, and the decision is now in the hands of the starlet, according to Sport.

The 17-year-old is highly thought of in Catalonia, but his current contract has this release clause which has made him the centre of substantial interest already this summer.

Jugen Klopp’s side are set to lose Sadio Mane to Bayern Munich this summer, and thus the Merseyside club are looking to bolster their squad.

Klopp is understood to be heavily interested in Gavi, and is willing to activate the player’s release clause which would enable Liverpool to approach his representatives.

Barcelona have responded to this interest by sending their contract offer to the wonderkid’s agents. Despite their financial troubles, the Spanish giants aren’t willing to let one of their greatest assets leave this summer without a fight. 

Gavi made his breakout season in 21/22 under new boss Xavi, making 47 appearances in all competitions and scoring two goals. The Spaniard is a product of La Masia, Barcelona’s prestigious academy, and has now made seven caps for the senior national team before the age of 18.

Liverpool are on the hunt for more technically astute midfielders, and Klopp is said to be impressed by Gavi’s technical security and the ball progression he offers. The German boss is also said to be enticed by the player’s tenacious style and ability to press, an essential part to the system Klopp implements.

The ball is now in the player’s court, with a contract offer from his current club and an offer from the Champions League runners-up on the table for him. It’s thought that he’s likely to commit his future to Barca, but an enticing offer from Liverpool could persuade him to swap allegiances.
