Chelsea Not Pursuing Gavi: The Latest Update in Football News

    This was reported by journalist Ben Jacobs. Caught Outside that Chelsea are not interested in signing Gavi from Barcelona in the summer transfer window.

    The reporter said the midfielder wants to stay at Camp Nou and that former La Liga and UEFA Champions League winners Barcelona are not worried about losing the Spanish star on a free transfer at the end of the season.

    Jacobs said: Chelsea are not chasing Gavi. Admittedly, he is appreciated by almost everyone in world football, but Chelsea’s meeting with Ivan de la Peña, Gavi’s agent, was about Luis Enrique. De la Peña also introduces Enrique, who is a Chelsea candidate and wants to work in the Premier League.

    “Gavi’s connections remind me of Neymar’s connections with Chelsea. It’s true that Todd Boly met Nasser Al-Khelaifi ahead of PSG’s Champions League home game against Bayern, but it was informal, mostly to smooth over the aftermath of Hakim Ziyech’s failed loan deal on deadline day in January. The transfer of Neymar was not discussed.

    “Gavi is not currently registered as a Barcelona first team player because La Liga ruled that the club had exceeded the salary cap by offering him a new contract last September. This means he is returning to his old contract, which expires at the end of this season. So in theory Gavi could be available for free. But Barcelona is not too concerned. They know Gavi wants to stay and Chelsea also have a lot of other midfield options that they are working on.”
