FIFA to pay Barcelona €20,548 every day – FIFA will have to pay Barcelona €20,548 compensation for each day that Gavi will be out injured, according to Mundo Deportivo.
The 19-year-old has been ruled out for the rest of the season after he tore his anterior cruciate ligament while on international duty with Spain on Sunday.
Gavi has also suffered an associated injury to the lateral meniscus and will undergo surgery later this week.
“Tests carried out on Monday on the first team player Gavi have shown that he has a complete tear of the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee and an associated injury to the lateral meniscus,”
Barça said in a statement.
“The player will have surgery in the coming days after which a new medical update will be released.”
Barça will provide a timeframe on his recovery after the operation, but Gavi is expected to miss the rest of the campaign and is also a major doubt for Euro 2024 and the Olympic Games with Spain next summer.
