Manchester City will compete with Chelsea for Golden Boy


Manchester City are reportedly keen on signing 19-year-old Barcelona midfielder Gavi, also a target for Chelsea.

Gavi The Gem

According to a TEAMtalk report, Barcelona values Gavi at £120 million. The Spanish midfield genius is being pursued by Chelsea and Manchester City, the reigning Premier League winners.

The 19-year-old Barcelona midfielder is among the finest in the world at his position. And any team may find themselves with a great asset in him. A number of prestigious teams, including Chelsea, have reportedly been linked to the Spanish international.

Manchester City Needs

More talent and technical proficiency in the center of the park would undoubtedly benefit City. Particularly if players like Bernardo Silva depart in the near future. If Gavi joins the team, he will provide goals and inventiveness to the midfield. But Manchester City has the financial means to pay the rumored £120 million asking price.

The massive Premier League winners from last season will be aiming to challenge for big prizes on a regular basis. To contend with premier teams each season, they require a first-rate team.
Someone like Gavi would vastly improve them.

Leave or Stay?

With more guidance and experience, Gavi, who has already established himself as a vital member of Barcelona’s team, will only get better. It can only be advantageous for the midfielder to work under Pep Guardiola and Manchester City. Who has an exceptional reputation and a track record of developing young players.

The lifelong Barcelona supporter may not be eager to leave anytime soon, but if the right proposal comes up, he may give a transfer some thought. Given their established status as a major force in Europe, it would be difficult for any player to turn down Manchester City.
