Transfer: Liverpool dealt with a fresh blow as Barcelona close in on contract

Liverpool are set to miss out on reported transfer target Gavi this summer.
The midfielder has been linked with a move to the Reds amid contract uncertainty at Camp Nou.

Gavi is out of contract in 2023, and having rejected early offers from the Blaugrana, Barca were heading for a situation where they may have to sell the midfielder on the cheap this summer to avoid losing him for free.
But it looks like they have avoided those two disastrous scenarios, with a new contract now set to be agreed.

According to Sport, Barca are expecting to close an agreement with the star 17-year-old in the coming days.

Former Chelsea star named to PFA Premier League Team of the Year

Former Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger named to PFA PL Team of the Year

Former Blues centerback Antonio Rudiger was able to wedge his way into the end-of-season XI after a stellar year. He and Joao Cancelo (Man City) helped paint an otherwise all-red defense blue on the left side. Rudiger was undeniably one of the best defenders in the league over the course of an entire 38-game season, which paid dividends for him as an individual, seeing as he joined Cristiano Ronaldo as the only non-top two leagu

The German centerhalf helped Chelsea keep a sturdy 14 clean sheets in the 34 matches he appeared in this year. Only the champions and runners-up completed the campaign with fewer goals allowed (26 each) than the Blues (33) and that is largely due to the incredible seasons by Rudiger and Thiago Silva. In addition to his defensive contributions, the 29-year-old scored three goals and added two assists in the league—including an absolute worldie against Brentford.

Despite being named to the PFA’s Premier League Team of the Year, Rudiger was not given Chelsea’s Player of the Season award. Mason Mount (13 goals, 16 assists in all
competitions) collected the honor for the second consecutive season. The veteran duo in defense of Rudiger and Silva were amongst the favorites as they were two of the highest rated and consistent Blues performers this year.
