Barcelona has stated that they would finally address how they became involved with El Caso Negreira. On Monday at 11:00 CEST, the Catalan side has scheduled a news conference where President Joan Laporta would speak to the media.
The news that was published earlier this week has been confirmed by SER Catalunya, according to Diario AS. La Liga, RFEF, and the Sports Ministry are among the teams and organizations now participating in the investigation being conducted by the Spanish government Anti-Corruption Department against Barcelona.
BARCELONA IS INTERESTED IN RENEWING 19-YEAR-OLD LAMANIA MIDDLEFIELD AND TALKS HAVE BEGUN
If not for an ankle issue Aleix would have been called earlier. He has potential and an excellent final pass which is maybe what we miss the most without Pedri,” he added of the La Masia grad equating him to Barcelona’s pivotal midfielder.
The club is currently attempting to extend the protege’s contract according to sources from Mundo Deportivo. In Catalonia the 19-year-old is under contract until June; after that he will be a free agent.
The adolescent has appeared in 20 matches this season including six matches in the UEFA Youth League, nine for the league’s U19A squad, and five for Barca Athletic. He has successfully retrieved the ball three times throughout that period.
But the only thing that remains unclear about his future is the opposition. Garrido may not have room to develop because Gavi, Pedri, Franck Kessie, Pablo Torre, Sergio Busquets, and Frenkie de Jong are vying for starting positions and the club is interested in players like Sofyan Amrabat and Ilkay Gundogan.

BARCELONA ATTACKER IS WANTED BY LEEDS UNITED PER SOURCES
Barcelona’s summer transfer window will be challenging since various positions require strengthening. The Catalans are probably trying to add a left winger a backup striker a defensive midfielder and a right back.
Barcelona is evaluating a number of candidates for that position but one of their own is performing well in La Liga. Ez Abde who now represents Osasuna is anticipated to make the Barça first squad for the next campaign.
Given that Leeds United reportedly wants to recruit Abde in the summer, one of these bids could soon be made. They have already spoken with the player agents and are prepared to make an offer if the player finds the plan to be reasonable.
Yannick Carrasco and Marcus Thuram are two players whom Barcelona is also evaluating for the left-wing position. While the latter is a free agent, the former may be signed for €9 million.
The final choice won’t probably be made until the Moroccan’s loan is through and he has participated in a few of Xavi’s preseason training sessions.
IN CHELSEA SEARCH FOR BARCELONA MIDFIELDER LUIS ENRIQUE COULD BE ESSENTIAL
Graham Potter had been fired earlier in the month, thus Chelsea shocked everyone by naming Frank Lampard as interim manager until the end of the campaign.
To that point a recent article from Goal examined Chelsea’s interest in Gavi, indicating that Luis Enrique may be a deciding factor in the Premier League powerhouses ability to recruit the Barcelona teenager.
This occurs shortly after rumors surfaced that Gavi’s agent had a meeting with Chelsea staff members to discuss the player’s future. To get the adolescent to Stamford Bridge, the Blues are reportedly prepared to offer him a lucrative deal and a sizable signing bonus.
In order to resolve Gavi’s contract Barcelona is apparently looking at solutions. It has even become more important as the club tries to avoid having to approve the transfer of one of its most talented players. Only in the upcoming weeks may we start to hear more certain details about Gavi’s future.
