Liverpool ‘surrender’ on signing Barcelona wonderkid Gavi as Xavi prepares monster contract | Football | Sport


Liverpool have ended their interest in signing Barcelona wonderkid Gavi as a result of their belief the teen will sign a latest deal on the Nou Camp, reports claim. Gavi is alleged to be in talks with Barca chiefs over a latest deal.

Jurgen Klopp is predicted to sign a latest central midfielder this summer having failed to exchange Georginio Wijnaldum a yr ago. The Reds opted to focus elsewhere last yr, but are expected to bolster the center of the park this summer.

Gavi was seen as the perfect candidate, as a result of his immense talent, frightening potential and release clause in his contract. His current deal has a release clause of just €42million (£36m), meaning he’s actually reasonably priced for the Reds.

Nevertheless, Gavi is predicted to place pen to paper on a latest contract with a significantly larger release clause. In consequence, Liverpool have apparently ended their interest.

Spanish outlet SPORT claims Liverpool had hope of with the ability to lure Gavi away from the Nou Camp, but his latest contract will include a release clause of €1billion, similar to Pedri, Ansu Fati, Ronald Araujo and Ferran Torres.

As a substitute, Liverpool are believed to be fascinated with signing Leeds midfielder Kalvin Phillips. The Englishman would have been available for just £25m this summer if the Whites had been relegated, but is now expected to cost significantly more.
