The FC Barcelona number 6 is going to be Gavi from now on. The midfielder is changing jersey number from the number 30 he was worn since 2021/22. Gavi inherits a number worn by players such as Migueli, Guillermo Amor, coach Xavi Hernández (who wore the jersey for the most seasons for the Club), or more recently Dani Alves, Denis Suárez, Todibo, Carles Aleñá and Riqui Puig.
The shirt number has been free since the 2021/22 season when Riqui Puig left the Club.
Two years wearing the number 30
Gavi has worn the number 30 jersey during his two seasons in the first team squad. A period during which he has become an established member of the first team due to his technical quality, reading of the game, ability to link, and turn of pace.
Normally associated with a centre forward, he wears the number 9 for the Spanish national team, as he appeared at the recent World Cup under coach Luis Enrique at the time.
