PSG Should Exercise Caution in Selling Arsenal, Barcelona Target to Bayern Munich

Xavi Simons intends to make a decision on his future after UEFA Euro 2024. Reports suggest he will not extend his stay at Paris Saint-Germain, and several leading European clubs have shown interest in signing him this summer.

Recently, L’Equipe reported that several clubs, including Arsenal, Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Manchester United, and Manchester City, have contacted PSG to explore the possibility of signing Simons.

Additionally, Florian Plettenberg from Sky Sport Germany mentioned that Bayern Munich is preparing a loan proposal with an obligation clause to secure Simons for a transfer fee ranging from €60 million to €70 million.

If PSG does engage in talks with Bayern Munich over selling Simons to the German giants, CBS Sports’ Jonathan Johnson notes that the capital club should think long and hard about this potential transfer.

With regards to Bayern, I’d be very wary,” Johnson said on the latest episode of PSG Talking. “I think the only way it makes sense to even consider doing a deal with Bayern for Xavi Simons is if PSG are potentially getting a very useful player in return. Now there’s been some speculation about Kingsley Coman. Given Coman’s physical difficulties the last couple of years, I’d say that that was a risk.

“But there are other players in that Bayern squad that PSG could look to potentially negotiate for. You’ve got Mathys Tel, who while he’s behind Harry Kane and not getting the minutes that he wants would be a very interesting kind of profile for PSG to have a discussion about, you know, French, you know, up-and-coming talent and one who looks to be on the cusp of breaking through at senior level. There’s a couple of options in the midfield as well. We’ve seen PSG link with the likes of [Joshua] Kimmich over the last couple of years.

“So I think only once every possibility has been exhausted with Xavi Simons in terms of trying to convince him that his future lies in Paris. Only at that point do you potentially consider negotiating with Bayern to get maybe cash plus a player for Simons because Simons stock at this moment in time, especially if the Netherlands continue to make a deep run at the Euro this summer, it is very high.”

During his loan spell at RB Leipzig, Simons made a significant impact, featuring in 43 matches across all competitions, scoring 10 goals and registering 15 assists.

  1. I have said it before, it will be the worst error in the history of PSG.

    In two years time PSG will be looking for Simons signature again with the price tag of 90 m or above.

    Keep the boy now.
    I don’t see why he can’t make this current PSG team in the absence of Mbappe, Messi and Neymar.
