Barcelona announced the renewal of the contract of its young player Javi until the summer of 2026.
Jaffe’s contract with Barcelona was about to expire in the summer of 2023.
Barcelona has put a release clause in Jaffe’s new contract of one billion euros.
Gavi became the sixth Barcelona player to have a penalty clause of this amount after Ansu Fati, Ferran Torres, Ronald Araujo, Rafinha and Jules Conde.
Barcelona is preparing to officially promote Jaffe to the first team and give him the number 6 shirt, starting next January.
Jaffe reached an agreement with Barcelona to renew a while ago, but the player’s completion of 18 years was necessary before signing, which happened on August 5.
Barcelona then faced a problem in making a place for Jaffe in the first team list, and with the activation of economic levers and then the departure of Miralem Pjanic towards Sharjah, the renewal of the contract became possible.
Barcelona will hold a press conference tomorrow, Thursday, at six in the evening, at the Spotify Camp Nou stadium, to present Javi as a new player in the first team.
