The only good thing for Barcelona after Gavi’s serious injury has to do with the hefty compensation the club will receive from FIFA. According to the rules of the world football headquarters, any club whose player is injured during his commitment with the national team and which takes him out of the fields for more than 4 months must be financially compensated.
From the 28th day after receiving the injury, FIFA starts paying the club a maximum of 20,548 euros per day. The maximum term of the specific compensation is 365 days, and the maximum allowable amount is a total of 7.5 million euros. The exact numbers are calculated on the basis of Gavi’s salary at Barca, which is secret, but according to “AC” it is in the order of around €7 million/year.
The midfielder is expected to be out for a period of 6 to 9 months. This means that, at least for half a year, Barça will have to receive a total of around 5 million euros from FIFA.
In addition, the Spanish champions also automatically receive a special privilege for the upcoming transfer window. According to the new rules of La Liga, the “Blaugranas” can use 80% of Gavi’s annual salary to attract one or more players (maybe on loan – NB), and the amount includes their remuneration/remunerations. These amounts will not be included in the club’s general account, which it gives for wages and which is regulated by La Liga. As is known, it is precisely this restriction that “ties the hands” of Barca. With Gavi’s salary of 7 million euros, this means that the club will have 5.6 million euros.
