Chelsea 'ready to make Gavi one of Premier League's highest earners' after positive transfer talks with Barcelona star | The Sun
CHELSEA are reportedly prepared to make Gavi one of the top earners in the Premier League.
The Spaniard is set to make a decision over his future and whether it lies in Barcelona or away from the club.
Gavi, 18, is one of the most sought-after talents in Europe after breaking into the Catalonian giants' first team.
Chelsea are willing to do whatever it takes to get him to Stamford Bridge, with AS claiming that the club will "break the bank" to sign him.
The outlet also suggested that the player's representatives have been in talks with the London club and co-owner Todd Boehly and that it has yielded positive results.
The report does say that Gavi has always preferred the idea of staying at Barcelona, which means the Blues will have to change his mind.

He only recently signed a new contract at the Nou Camp, keeping him at the club until 2026.
However, the Catalan giants are unable to register him as a first-team player due to financial problems.
If the issue is not resolved then the midfielder could leave on a free transfer at the end of the season as his contract will be void.
For Gavi to stay at the club, he would have to either reduce his wage demands or players will have to be sold to make room in the wage budget.
