Fresh insight into the ongoing contract negotiations between Barcelona and youngster Gavi was provided on Friday.
And the news will no doubt spark widespread excitement from those hoping to see the Spanish starlet continue to ply her trade in Blaugrana colors for years to come.
It comes with Gavi, according to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, moving ever closer to committing to new terms at Camp Nou.
A new meeting between the leaders of the Catalan capital and the representatives of the club’s midfield sensation reportedly took place earlier today.
And the discussion between the two sides proved to be quite productive, with Barca’s latest proposal being ‘appreciated’ by Gavi and co.
The 17-year-old, in turn, is set to put pen to paper on a new long-term deal over the next few weeks, following team-mate Ronald Araujo in committing his future with the Blaugrana.
Gavi update. The meeting has just ended between the board of directors of Barcelona and its agent Iván de la Peña. New agreement closer and closer – positive meeting, negotiation is well advanced. 🔵🔴 #FCB

The final word on Gavi’s future comes of course from the midfielder who is set to play a pivotal role for Xavi Hernandez’s side again this weekend.
Fresh off a return to victory over Mallorca last time out, Barcelona travel to the Estadio Benito Villamarin on Saturday night for a La Liga showdown with Real Betis.
The Blaugrana head into the clash finishing 2nd in the Spanish top flight, albeit 15 points behind rivals Real Madrid, officially crowned champions last weekend.
