Gavi has successfully undergone a surgery today, to repair the damage done to the ligament in his left knee.

The 19-year-old picked up the injury while playing for Spain in a game against Georgia earlier this month.

A statement from Barcelona reads: “First team player Gavi had a successful operation on his torn right knee anterior cruciate ligament plus a meniscus suture today.

“Supervised by the club’s medical services, Doctor Joan Carles Monllau performed the intervention at Hospital de Barcelona. His recovery will determine when he is fit to return to the squad.”

Gavi will miss eight months as he recovers from injury.

Barcelona are hoping that Gavi will be available to play again from the start of the 2024/25 season next August.
