Xavi Simons made his first start this season with Paris Saint-Germain this past weekend, where he started all 90 minutes against SC Feignies. The capital club picked up a 3-0 victory, where the 18-year-old provided the pass leading to the assist on Kylian Mbappé’s second goal.
Simons’ contract expires in June, and there are plenty of supporters worried whether the midfielder departs on a free transfer. Nonetheless, perhaps this weekend was the first sign of PSG hoping to do everything they can to keep the talented player.
“Xavi Simons had to train with the pros but finally came down with the formation of Zoumana Camara. Negotiations are underway, and in private, PSG hopes to see the situation evolve in early January,” Goal states.
“An extension with a possible loan during the next transfer window or at the end of the season is one of the solutions mentioned.”
There are no further details regarding what country PSG and Simons’ representatives would be okay with and what other incentives could come in a possible contract extension.
Barcelona has been linked to Simons in what would be a return to the Spanish club after the teenager departed the La Liga side for the French capital in 2019.
