The injury of Pablo Gavi has fallen like a vase of cold water in the FC Barcelona. In addition to the emotional impact of his absence, the injury of the Andalusian leaves to the Barcelona club with an important drop in a key zone of the terrain of the game, the centre of the field. This aggravates in a context in which the square culé can not allow make big economic investments.

Although Xavi Hernández has six midfield players in his staff, the egarense seems to be expecting still a reinforcement that can contribute a plus of quality to the medullary zone, that already has players of the size of Frenkie of Jong, Ilkay Gündoğan, Pedri González and Fermín López, for mentioning some. The longing of the technician of Terrassa would be fichar to Giovani Celso.

Celso, the unambiguous longing of Xavi

The Argentinian midfield player has been gone on down Xavi during quite a lot of time and at present is in a good sportive moment. In spite of a beginning of slow season because of an injury that kept it out of the terrains of game during five meetings, Celso seems to have adapted entirely to the dynamics of Ange Postecoglou, being headline in the last three parties of the 'Spurs' in which it has marked two goals and has been key in the aspirations of his team.

Of this way, duel after duel, the Argentinian has showed why the trainer of the Barça has showed so much interest in him lately. Nevertheless, this operation has not been able to concretise because of the fault of flexibility by part of the Tottenham to the hour to negotiate. This would be the only option for the Barcelona, since Celso still has a year and half of agreement.

The negotiation by the Argentinian, task complicated for the Barça

Under these circumstances, purchase to the talentoso Gio Celso for the Barcelona would not be a simple task. At present, the rosarino has a value of market of 14 million euros according to 'Transfermarkt' and is object of wish of several clubs. Besides, taking into account what saw in the market of past summer, is likely that the 'Spurs' value it in a minimum from among 10 and 15 million euros.

Initially, the idea of the combined Barcelona was fichar to the midfield player in quality of yielded. However, given the increasing paper that is exerting in the plans of the Australian trainer, seems little likely that the club decide to leave it go in loan. This, added to the intransigencia showed by the Tottenham and his president Daniel Levy to the hour to negotiate, does that resolve this wish of Xavi like trainer of the Barcelona was increasingly complicated, at least for this season.
