Roura and Altimira traveled to Seville to see Gavi play when he was only 11 years old and played for Betis. They had it clear from the day they saw him and they quickly took it upon themselves to close it so that he would wear a blaugrana. “Gavi is the great example of precocity”, they highlight. And they remember how they signed it. “It was the fry that all of Spain wanted and it was not easy. Signing children is the same as signing an adult, saving economic distances, but you have to agree with the club, with the representative, with the family … In their case, La Masia tipped the balance, convinced them. We explained things normally and the sporty and fast project suited them ”.
In addition, the young footballer made it his goal to succeed at Barça. “He has always had the mentality to stay here. He has very clear ideas ”, they say.
In addition to the Andalusian, a lot of talent rises. “They ask me about the new Ansu or Gavi, when they are 18 and 17 years old. This is already good news. I dare not say names, but there are many. The great satisfaction and tranquility is to see that we have left a high-level squad “.
