Xavi Simons continues to be one of the rising stars in European football. The 20-year-old is building off a successful 2022–23 season with PSV Eindhoven and isn’t slowing down with RB Leipzig.
Simons returned to Paris Saint-Germain after the capital club triggered his buyback clause. However, there’s speculation over his future in the French capital. The player likely wants reassurance that he’ll be a starter next season.
If the Dutchman doesn’t like the conditions at PSG for him to succeed, could he push for a departure? If Simons becomes available, FC Barcelona will join other European clubs to monitor the situation and see what transpires.
According to Diario SPORT, Barcelona is keeping on being attentive to Simons, who was a former academy player for the Catalan side. Nonetheless, the Spanish club will face competition if the midfielder hits the transfer market.
