Gavi's serious injury leaves Barcelona in trouble.

The 'FIFA Virus' continues to wreak havoc in the football world, with the excess of matches taking a toll on players pushing them to their limits. La Liga has been heavily affected by the recent international break, losing a significant number of key players.
Real Madrid's Vinicius Jr (Brazil) and Camavinga (France), Mallorca's Muriqi (Kosovo), Real Sociedad's Mikel Oyarzabal (Spain), Villarreal's Aïssa Mandi (Algeria), and Barcelona's Ter Stegen (Germany) and Gavi (Spain) have all fallen victim to the demanding schedule.
The most severe injury occurred to Gavi, who bid farewell to the season after rupturing the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee against Georgia. Moreover, the player has suffered damage to the external meniscus. His absence could extend up to nine months, causing him to miss both the Euro and the Olympics.
This is a significant blow for Barcelona and manager Xavi Hernandez, losing one of their key players on the pitch. Following this setback, the Catalan club will receive compensation from FIFA through the Player Protection Program. With an inactivity period exceeding 28 days, the organisation will pay €20,548 for each day the player is sidelined.
The medical report released by Barcelona on Monday indicates that the recovery process may last up to nine months, potentially resulting in a total compensation exceeding €5 million.
