Barca to receive €5.5m compensation for Gavi injury – here's how

FIFA are set to pay Barcelona €20,548 for every day Gavi spends injured, per Diario AS. However, the maximum days for this payment is 365 days.

Gavi tore his Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) while playing for Spain in a Euro qualifier dead rubber against Georgia on Sunday.

With Gavi expected to be out for nine months (270 days), per a credible sports doctor, Barcelona will be expecting a pay-check in the region of €5.5m by the time Gavi is fit to play again next season.

The payment comes from FIFA's Club Protection Programme (CPP) which covers the risk of injury to players during international matches. This compensation covers losses incurred by clubs in terms of player salaries during a period of injury.

Barcelona will definitely take the money, but a fit Gavi would've been worth even more. The 19-year-old has featured in 15 games for Barca this season scoring twice and recording one assist. Unfortunately, he wouldn't be able to add to that tally this season.
