It is reported that Spain’s crown princess, Princess Leonor has a serious crush on the Spaniard. Felipe VI of Spain was in Doha, Qatar watching his opening country’s rout over Costa Rica. After Spain‘s emphatic win against Costa Rica, Leonor’s dad, the current king of Spain, Felipe VI of Spain, went to the dressing room and have Gavi sign a shirt.
The shirt that the king was holding was of small size which definitely wouldn’t fit the king, so it is assumed he had got the shirt for his eldest daughter.

The 17-year-old princess also has a lot of photos of the future Spanish star in her school folder which says a lot about her infatuation with Gavi.
