LIGA - Report: Xavi reject Donny van de Beek move to Barcelona
According to Sport, Xavi has turned down Barcelona's offer for Manchester United player Donny van de Beek.
During his time at Ajax, the kid was a target for Barcelona. The club attempted to negotiate a transfer to Camp Nou, but the midfielder preferred to stay at Old Trafford.
England, on the other hand, has not been nice to him. The teenager struggled to obtain minutes under Ole Gunnar Soskjaer, which resulted to his expulsion from the Dutch national squad.
Van van Beek was contacted by Barcelona about a possible transfer early this year. The Dutchman was said to be overjoyed about the opportunity.
Xavi, on the other hand, is said to have blocked the deal, claiming that he already has enough resources in midfield. The management has a lot of options for people in Sergio Busquets, Gavi, Nico, Pedri, Puig, and Frenkie de Jong.
