Barcelona midfield target set to meet with PSG to discuss future



Xavi Simons has emerged as a top transfer target for Barcelona in recent weeks as the club look to fortify their left wing ahead of the new season.

The youngster, who left Catalonia for PSG after being denied a guarantee of minutes in the first team, is said to be yearning for a return home and has clauses on his contract that favour the same.

The Parisiens, however, hope to count on Simons’ services next season, especially after the departure of Kylian Mbappe. They are completely against the idea of a departure on loan and seek close to €60 million for a permanent transfer.

Meeting scheduled

If PSG decide to keep Simons, the youngster will respect the club’s decision and not look to push for a departure.

Should the French giants not have him in their plans, however, the youngster has a clause in his agreement that allows him to decide his future. Barcelona, on that front, is his top priority.

According to a recent update from Fabrizio Romano, a meeting has been scheduled between Simons and the Parisien administration in the coming weeks. The result of the talks between the two parties could finalise the youngster’s future.

A brilliant opportunity

The ever-reliable Italian journalist also furthers that Barcelona sees Simons as an amazing opportunity, and rightly so as the youngster’s signing can solve multiple problems for the Catalans.

For starters, Simons is an agile, dynamic and highly versatile option down the wing who is not only comfortable with the ball at his feet but also boasts a certain flair that is hard to come by.

Further, one must also consider that the young Dutchman would arrive on a hypothetical loan, thus saving the club a significant sum in terms of transfer fees come June.
