LIGUE 1 - Xavi Simons regrets and wants to leave PSG for FC Barcelona
Xavi Simons (18) made the switch from FC Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain in 2019, but would regret that choice. The Dutch midfielder, who has already made his first team debut despite all the competition in Paris, would like to take the opposite route again. However, there is still little interest from Camp Nou.
Simons is said to have asked his agent Mino Raiola if he could not bring him back to Camp Nou. There are far more opportunities to break through there than in the star squad of Mauricio Pochettino, who has needed Simons twice at Paris Saint-Germain so far, but both appearances were last season. In general, he plays his matches in the O19 team of the French top club.
This story comes from Adrián Sánchez, who came out with this news in the program Mas Que Pelotas. However, the journalist from the Catalan television channel 8tv also knows that FC Barcelona has so far ignored Raiola's offer. Despite Raiola's good contacts with the board of the Catalan superpower, there are doubts about Simons.
The fact that the Dutchman made the sensitive switch to PSG certainly did not help and the midfield with talents Nico González, Gavi and Pedri is not the first place where FC Barcelona is looking for reinforcements. Ronald Koeman could still use an experienced midfielder, but for Simons there is little prospect of a direct breakthrough.
