Barcelona’s Pablo Gavi is expected to receive the joint-highest release clause in football history.
Culers worried about if Bayern Munich will sign Gavi on a free transfer given that his current contract ends in 2023 as a result of the German club’s apparent interest in him throughout the summer.
However, a number of reliable sources have asserted that the teen is prepared to devote his long-term future to Barcelona. The day that the highly sought-after midfielder will eventually sign on the dotted line is predicted by a recent update.
According to a report by SPORT, Gavi is scheduled to sign his deal with the Catalan powerhouse until 2026 on Thursday.
A €1 billion release clause will also be included after the 18-year-old signs the contract, which is an intriguing development.
This historic release clause was granted to several Barcelona players, including Pedri, Ronald Araujo, and Ansu Fati. Real Madrid gave it to Benzema.

Thursday was seen as the ideal day in between both matches to concentrate on the highly-rated prospect’s new contract because Xavi’s team was scheduled to play Bayern on Tuesday and Elche the following Saturday.
Additionally, it has been disclosed that a public presentation will be planned, similar to the ones that took place to introduce players like Marcos Alonso and Hector Bellerin to the team without any supporters present at the Ciutat Esportivo pitch.
The media will be there to film the moment while Gavi makes a few touches of the ball and club president Joan Laporta and the player both make speeches.
A date has not yet been decided because Laporta’s schedule will determine when the event will take place.
Given that the wonderkid has started every La Liga game so far this season, indicating how he is already one of the team’s most valuable players, it is not surprising to see Barça place such importance on the ex-Real Betis starlet’s new contract.
