How Barcelona plan to reward starlet Gavi following Spain bow

Spain’s newest wonderkid set for Barcelona care package

It was a record breaking night for Spain yesterday evening, and in more than one way. Luis Enrique’s La Roja finally ended the 37-match unbeaten run of Roberto Mancini’s vaunted Italian side at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza in Milan in a 2-1 UEFA Nations League semi-final win.

A brace from Manchester City’s Ferran Torres was the deciding factor in an impressive performance from another young Spanish side under Enrique, who has made a habit of turning to youthful exuberance since taking command of the national team.

While Spain stopped a record breaking run from continuing, but they also were the subject of their own record on the night when Barcelona starlet Gavi became the youngest player to appear for the Iberian nation at just 17-years-old and 62 days while completing 82-minutes against the European champions.

Gavi has already featured on seven occasions for Barcelona this season, including five in La Liga that has come with two selections in Ronald Koeman’s starting XI.

After his rapid rise after being promoted from the U19 side this summer, Barça are set to offer the native of Los Palacios y Villafranca a long-term 5-year deal at the Camp Nou.

Gavi to form nucleus at both club and international level

There are few nations that dabble in the fine art of youth production better than Spain, and La Roja are in the midst of another production quota being met.

Gavi is just one of a few youngsters plying their trade at home and abroad that are on the cusp of forming a long-term central core for the Iberian outfit in the not-so-distant future.
