Real Madrid players have sent messages to Barcelona stars over Gavi’s behaviour – report
Sunday night’s El Clasico between Barcelona and Real Madrid at Camp Nou was a feisty affair, as Clasicos usually tend to be more often than not.
Barça came out on top in what was a clutch victory that all but confirms their La Liga title triumph if they avoid a monumental slip-up in the remaining 12 matches of the season.
Given the rivalry and what was at stake on the night, tempers flared on the pitch, with a couple of incidents standing out in particular.
One of those saw Barcelona wonderkid Gavi ram into Real Madrid midfielder Dani Ceballos and send him to the ground during the final stages of the match after it seemed like the latter had trampled on Robert Lewandowski’s foot.
This action happened off-the-ball and went unnoticed by the referee. But, Real Madrid players were reportedly very upset by the behaviour of the 18-year-old Barcelona midfielder, calling his actions ‘unsportsmanlike’.
Now, according to Adrian Sanchez, Real Madrid players have already sent messages to some Barcelona heavyweights about Gavi’s behaviour and have allegedly asked them to have a word with the teenager about the same.
Some reports in Spain are also claiming that Los Blancos feel that referees give the Barcelona youngster a lot of leeway on the pitch.
In his short career at the highest level, Gavi has made a name for himself with his fearless and aggressive attitude. And considering the rivalry and intensity of a Clasico, things tend to get dialled up to 11.
There have been many skirmishes between the two sets of players in the past. Ceballos himself was involved in an incident with Gavi during the Spanish Super Cup, but came out without any punishment from the referee.
The two players are currently part of the Spain national team squad and it will be interesting to see how they deal with things, especially with Barcelona and Real Madrid set to face off again on April 5 in Copa del Rey.

Real Madrid president dreaming of trident attack featuring €180 million-rated French starlet
Real Madrid have drawn a comprehensive roadmap for the upcoming summer transfer window and the club’s squad planning ahead of the new season, but as far as the club’s ambition is concerned, the objective is to sign Kylian Mbappe in 2024.
Real Madrid are expected to revolve everything around the idea of signing the PSG superstar next year, reports Alfredo Matilla and Sergio Santos.
As per the two Spanish journalists, Florentino Perez is envisioning a Real Madrid strikeforce comprising Rodrygo, Vinicius Junior, and Mbappe.
The report points out that Real Madrid view the Frenchman as a realistic target as they expect him not to accept the option of extending his contract at PSG until 2025 next year. His fallout with the PSG has been already well-documented this year.
With Les Parisien seemingly failing to live up to Mbappe’s ambition, it could only be a matter of time before he opts to leave the club. To that end, Real Madrid will be prepared, especially at the end of next season.
Meanwhile, Real Madrid are starting to lose hope of signing Erling Haaland, because of the striker’s excellent relationship with Pep Guardiola which could keep him at Man City beyond 2024. Mbappe, therefore, has emerged as the top target for Los Blancos.
The potential strikeforce comprising Vinicius, Rodrygo and Mbappe could see Real Madrid operating in a 4-3-3 formation, with Mbappe playing at the centre. It must be noted that the club are also involved in the pursuit of Kai Havertz.
The German could be an intriguing addition to this strikeforce – potentially making Real Madrid one of the most feared attacking sides in Europe. However, it remains to be seen whether or not Los Blancos can actually manage to pull the signing of Mbappe or Havertz in the near future.

Gavi needs to apologize. His fighting spirit must not affect his fair play.
