Barcelona complete Gavi registration with La Liga

Gavi saga is over he has been registered by La Liga with Barcelona first team and will wear #6

Barcelona complete Gavi’s registration with La Liga as the saga has officially ended, with the youngster wearing the club’s #6.

Confirmed 2023/24 Kits

The Catalan side had struggled with financial problems which prevented them from registering Gavi, even though the midfielder agreed a long-term extension with Barca last September.


His youth contract is due to expire this Summer, and the accomplishment of registration comes with the perfect timing.

The financial concerns prevented Blaugranas from securing the Spanish talent and saw them banned from increasing their salary without first reducing it.

Several clubs had expressed their interest after Gavi’s situation and were willing to offer if Barca could not finalize their agreement with the 18-year-old.

However, the saga is finally over, as the Spanish league has now confirmed the registration of the Barca’s star as a first-team player.

The 18-year-old’s contract now runs until the Summer of 2026 and contains a release clause of €1bn.

He will now be wearing #6 at the club, having been forced to use number 30 due to his previous situation.

Gavi’s importance at Camp Nou

Successfully registering Gavi will be a huge favor for Xavi, who used the player as a key role last season when they went on to win the league.

He managed 49 appearances in all competitions, including 30 games as a starter at the Spanish top flight. He scored three goals and seven assists.

The departures of Sergio Busquets even emphasized how massive the youngster will be in the Catalan squad next season.

He won Golden Ball for best youngster last year and has been nominated in this year’s award, together with teammate Balde.
