Barcelona are putting the finishing touches on a new contract for young midfielder Gavi, 90min understands.

The talented 18-year-old, whose current deal expires next summer, struck an agreement over a contract extension earlier this year but saw plans postponed as Barcelona were financially unable to finalise it without activating their now-famous levers - including selling shares of the club's TV and merchandise rights.

Clubs from around Europe had been reaching out to Gavi's camp to express an interest as talks with Barcelona dragged on, but as 90min reported previously, the La Liga side have long been confident that they would finalise the midfielder's new deal eventually.
