After the new contract signed with Kylian Mbappe, PSG, which came to a crossroads with sporting director Leonardo, continues its internal transfer efforts.
according to GOAL’s information, the French team is very close to signing a new contract with Dutch midfielder Xavi Simons, who is expected to mark the future of European football for a while.
What is Xavi Simons’ contract status?
Despite PSG’s efforts to stay in the team in the first days of 2022, Simons, who was warm to leaving, recently gave up on this idea. The young player, who transferred from Barcelona, where he grew up, to PSG for free in 2019, completed the 2021-2022 season with nine matches and complained about playing less.
PSG management has signed a new contract with Xavi Simons, trying to encourage other young players at the club to commit their future to PSG.
Ayman Kari, who wants a guarantee of playing before signing a new contract, and Edouard Michut, who has questions about his status in the squad, stand out as other names that the French team hopes to sign a contract with.
Xavi, whom Mauricio Pochettino gave a chance in the first 11 in only one game in the league, became one of the most important trump cards of the French team in the UEFA Youth League. The 19-year-old player, who also plays for the Netherlands U19 National Team, started all of the seven matches he played in the Youth League in the top 11, and scored four times in these matches.
