“Very good player”: Fabregas is a big fan of £120m Man City target who has been likened to Totti, amid reports

Manchester City are now keen to sign Barcelona No.6 Gavi – a player who Cesc Fabregas adores, as well as one who has been compared to Francesco Totti.

It was TEAMtalk who claimed that Pep Guardiola wants to sign the Spain international, and a bid of £120m could be enough to lure him away from Barcelona.

So, what has Cesc Fabregas said about Manchester City target Gavi in the past? Let’s take a look…

What’s the story?

Well, the Spaniard rose through Barcelona’s famed La Masia academy – which is where the Manchester City target learned his trade too.

Therefore, Fabregas is well placed to speak about Gavi’s rise to prominence, and he believes the 19-year-old is a truly special talent.

The 36-year-old once told Foot Mercato: “Gavi is really a very good player, very technical and very precocious. What strikes me the most about him is his ability to go to the duel, not to be afraid of confrontation, like against Aurélien (Tchouameni) during a Clasico.
