SOCCER fans are convinced Barcelona star Gavi was handed a girl’s phone number during his shirt signing.
The 18-year-old signed a new deal with the Catalan giants earlier this week, looking to keep him at the club until 2026.
Following the announcement, he hosted a shirt signature for fans after promising his future to the Spanish team.
But a female fan was seen handing him a piece of paper before posing for a photo with the teenager.
and social media is convinced she gave Gavi her number during the brief encounter.
One person said: “Gavi to take renewal and phone number 😂😂.”
Another added: “Now that he has renewed and will collect his money the girl is leaving her number now.”
Gavi had attracted interest from a variety of clubs including Manchester City, Liverpool, Manchester United and Bayern Munich.
And the clock was ticking as Barca landed a new deal as his existing deal expired in the summer.
But now an extension has been confirmed, with a staggering €1bn (£868m) release clause included in the terms.

Gavi has already played 53 times for Barcelona, scoring two goals.
And on the international stage, he has won ten caps for Spain.
Alongside Pedri, Gavi is seen as the future of his club and his country’s midfield.
According to LaLiga rules, every player must have an out clause in their contract.
And big release clauses are nothing new in Spanish football.
In fact, Barcelona youngsters Ansu Fati and Pedri have £868m buyout clauses in their current deals.
New summer signing Jules Kounde – a Chelsea target – also has the same bumper clause in his contract.
