Chelsea in talks with Barcelona wunderkind

Chelsea have started work on signing Barcelona midfielder Gavi. This has been reported by the Spanish media.

The first contacts between the sides took place a few weeks ago and were assessed as positive. A new round of talks is due to take place in the near future, where specifics will already be discussed.

Last autumn, Gavi signed a new contract with Barcelona, but the club failed to register him due to the salary cap in La Liga. The 18-year-old midfielder wants to stay at Barcelona, but believes the club are not doing enough to resolve the contract issue.

Chelsea are offering Gavi very favourable financial terms. The appointment of Luis Enrique as Chelsea head coach could also be an argument in favour of a change of club for the midfielder. Previously, Gavi has already played under him in the Spanish national team.
