While FC Barcelona had set itself the goal of shielding the contracts of its young nuggets, it is now clear that the Catalan club is more than on the right track in this project.
FC Barcelona is in full reconstruction. Indeed, after losing Leo Messi and Antoine Griezmann this summer while not being able to recruit massively because of his financial worries, the Catalan club must deal with a workforce full of gaps this season. Naturally, this leads Barça not to play a leading role, both in Liga as in Champions League , while the figure of Ronald Koeman on the Barcelona bench is frequently questioned. However, not everything is to be thrown in this start of the season for FC Barcelona , on the contrary. Blaugrana watchers can indeed rejoice at the emergence of an extremely promising young guard embodied by Pedri , Ansu Fati and Gavi .
Ansu Fati following in Pedri's footsteps, Gavi next on the list?
The first two quoted only confirm the promises already made in recent months and, naturally, the stake for FC Barcelona was not to run the risk of losing them. As a result, the Catalan club have been active in the optics of extending them in recent weeks, and that is now done! Pedri did indeed sign a new engagement last week, while Ansu Fati officially extended this Wednesday evening until June 30, 2027. On this occasion, the striker trained within the Masia Besides, did not hide all his pride. “I'm very happy, especially to be able to stay in this club that I love so much. I am very grateful for the opportunity they give me to grow up here. It is a very happy day for me and my family. Thank goodness the club gave me the opportunity to continue. Now I must continue to work and restore that confidence on the pitch. My current goal? As always, to continue to improve myself day after day as a player and as a person and to fight to win everything, ”the Spain international told the official media of the Catalan team.
Thus, there is only one player left from this young guard to extend urgently, namely Gavi . His case is different from that of the two players mentioned above. Only 17 years old, the midfielder summoned by Luis Enrique at the last meeting of the Roja really emerges this season and seduced a good part of the observers of European football. It was even announced that clubs would look into his situation, something which could have scared the FC Barcelona . However, the Catalan club would remain confident in the matter if the information released by SPORT on Thursday is to be believed. The Catalan media indeed indicates that the intention of Pedri would be good to stay within his training club, something which would therefore lead Barça to work with serenity on the issue of his future and an extension of up to three years as stipulated in the FIFA rules with underage players. It remains to be seen how the negotiations will unfold over the next few weeks in this third and final dossier of the young shoots of FC Barcelona .
