Liverpool of the English Premier League (EPL) desperately need reform.
In recent years, they have surpassed the EPL and reigned as the best team in Europe, but fell to the worst team this season. 6th in the EPL, already pushed out of the championship competition. The FA Cup and League Cup tasted the humiliation of early elimination, and the European Football Federation (UEFA) Champions League (UCL), the last chance, is also in a situation where there is little hope.
Liverpool lost 2-5 to Real Madrid in the first leg of the UCL Round of 16. On the 16th, the second leg of the round of 16 expedition will be held, but it seems virtually impossible to overturn this crushing defeat.
Liverpool are already looking forward to next season. We are preparing for a major team reorganization. In the meantime, the names of many players Liverpool wanted, such as Jude Bellingham (Dortmund), have been exchanged, but this time a new name that has not been mentioned has appeared.
It is midfielder Pablo Gavi, who is called ‘the future of Barcelona’ and ‘the future of Spain’. The 18-year-old Gabi made his first-team debut in 2021 after working through the youth clubs at Barcelona. With his genius talent, he has grown into a key member of Barcelona, being called ‘the second Xavi’ and ‘the second Iniesta’. He was also selected for the Spanish national team and played an active part in the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
Gabi is being evaluated as having the potential to grow into a superstar representing Spain. His value is currently estimated at a whopping 147.6 million euros (206.5 billion won). Barcelona also classified Gaby as an ‘absolutely untransferable’ player.
But there are variables. England’s ‘Mirror’ said, “Barcelona and Gaby’s contract is in confusion. Barcelona may be in a situation where they cannot register a new contract with Gaby. We decided not to admit it due to financial problems.”
Currently, Barcelona is planning not to allow La Liga players to sign unless they can immediately settle their £178 million (278.3 billion won) debt. Barcelona’s total debt is estimated to be over £1 billion.
In addition, Barcelona confirmed the buyout at a whopping 1 billion euros (approximately 1,403.3 billion won) by signing a renewal contract with Gaby until 2026. It is a part where you can feel what kind of existence Gabi is. This is the same as officially announcing that ‘transfer is impossible’. 스포츠토토
However, it is highly likely that this buyout will not have power either. “The La Liga decision means that Gaby’s buyout is not currently valid. Barcelona are filing an appeal. Barcelona may appeal the decision, but the situation is deadlocked,” explained the Mirror.
Liverpool are digging into this uneasy situation.
The media said, “Liverpool is showing interest in signing Garby after the chaotic Barcelona situation was revealed. Liverpool are watching Garby’s move. Liverpool have been big fans of Gaby from the past. The current situation is Liverpool aggressively signing Garby. opportunity to step out,” he reported.
Then, ‘Mirror’ explained, “Gabi is a passionate and combative midfielder. He has both natural talent and technical skills, and is regarded as Barcelona’s successor to Xavi-Iniesta.”
