Paris Saint-Germain might not have only attempted to secure Ousmane Dembélé from FC Barcelona. The capital club had another move up their sleeve if reports are accurate.
Mundo Deportivo reports that the Ligue 1 giants inquired about possibly transferring midfielder Gavi to Paris. However, PSG’s pursuit of the promising midfielder was swiftly shut down, with Barcelona firmly rejecting any notion of parting with their rising star.
🚨 PSG, through their trusted intermediary, had asked Barça if they were willing to transfer Gavi. It was something NEVER contemplated by the club as he is considered one of the most valuable player in the squad. @mundodeportivo 💎 pic.twitter.com/L6gDoSIjwC

The 19-year-old, who has risen through Barcelona’s youth ranks, is viewed as an integral part of the team’s plans. His emergence for the next generation has solidified his position within the club.
These rumors might explain why Gavi was reportedly upset. As a result, manager Xavi Hernandez reiterated Gavi’s significance and conveyed that he considers him an untouchable player in his plans.
PSG’s audacious inquiry highlights the club’s ambition to weaken the Spanish club further. Nonetheless, if the Parisians want to secure a player from the Catalan side, they must trigger the player’s release clause.
