Barcelona can sign Valencia midfield prospect Javi Guerra for less than €25 million instead of triggering his release clause of €100 million.

According to a report by Spanish outlet AS, Javi Guerra is the subject of interest from Barcelona. The Catalan giants are scouring the market for a midfielder heading into the summer transfer window. And they can sign the 21-year-old Valencia midfield prospect for less than €25 million instead of triggering his release clause worth €100 million.

Who is Javi Guerra?

Javi Guerra has established himself as one of the best young prospects in his homeland in the last few years. A native of Valencia, he spent his formative years with Los Che, rising through the ranks before making his first-team debut. The Spaniard made his senior bow as an 18-year-old in January 2022.

Since then, the 21-year-old has come leaps and bounds at the Mestalla, becoming a mainstay in the middle of the park for Valencia. Guerra enjoyed a solid 2023/24 campaign, amassing 2,735 minutes of game time across 40 appearances in all competitions, chipping in with four goals and one assist.

Meanwhile, Guerra’s progress has not gone unnoticed, capturing the attention of several high-profile clubs across Europe. Premier League bigwigs have shown interest in the Spanish midfielder. However, a move across La Liga might be on the cards in the summer transfer window, with Barcelona vying for his signature.

Move across La Liga on the horizon?

Barcelona first showed interest in Javi Guerra last year. However, a move did not materialise, although it was for the best as the 21-year-old Spaniard went from strength to strength at the Mestalla this season. The youngster might feel he is ready to join a big-name club in the summer transfer window.

Widespread reports have created a mountain of speculation surrounding Frenkie de Jong. So, Guerra has emerged as a viable target amid uncertainties surrounding the long-term future of the Dutch midfielder. The latest update has boosted Barcelona’s prospects as the youngster is available for less than €25 million.

Javi Guerra’s contract with Valencia has a release clause worth €100 million. However, amid Los Che’s urgent need to raise funds, it will be possible to secure the Spanish midfielder’s services for less than €25 million.
