According to a fresh report coming from French outlet L’Equipe, PSG are still keeping tabs on, and interested in signing Barcelona midfield ace Gavi.

They had started to keep a watchful eye on the player starting earlier this season, hoping to sign him to reinforce their midfield, which has been an area of concern for them for a few seasons, now.

They wanted to sign Gavi last summer with the money they would have gotten had Kylian Mbappe decided to move away, as he was ostracised from the PSG squad.

There have also been reports claiming that PSG will try to make a move for Gavi this summer, and could be ready to table a massive offer for his services, which could force Barcelona into making a tough decision.

€1 billion player

The report adds that Gavi’s entourage and PSG intermediaries were in contact last year, and agreed to keep in touch after the summer transfer window. The club’s interest in the player has not reduced despite his ACL injury.

Signing Gavi, though, is a good idea in theory, but nearly impossible in practice.

Barcelona have no plans to sell Gavi, now or in the future, and consider him one of the future captains of the club.

Even if PSG can convince the player, they will not be able to persuade Barcelona to sell him, with the €1 billion release clause a huge obstacle in the way.

That said, the Golden Boy Winner has absolutely no intention to leave Barça. He will not listen to any offers, including those from PSG or any other club.

When is Gavi returning?

Currently nursing an ACL tear, Gavi is expected to miss the 2024 Euros with Spain. Instead, he will be back ahead of next season.

If his recovery goes well, he could join Barcelona on the pre-season tour, but otherwise, all signs point towards him making a comeback not before the season starts.

Barça will be very cautious with his return, hoping he can recover his best form, and his abilities by the time the new season starts.
