Xavi Simons, the young 20-year-old Dutch midfielder, has been standing out since he left PSG to join PSV. In Paris, he did not have many playing minutes, so he decided to change the scene and return to his native country. At PSV, he has shone so much that PSG did everything possible to retain him, but finally, Al-Khalaïfi sent him back to the Parc des Princes paying only 10 million euros.
However, PSG has decided to loan Xavi to RB Leipzig for one season to continue gaining experience. In the Bundesliga team, the former Barcelona player has convinced everyone with his performance. In fact, they have already made it clear that it will be difficult for them not to fight for him to stay longer at the end of the season. Coach Marco Rose, in an interview with ‘ Kicker ‘, stated: “He is exactly the type of player who adapts to our way of playing football. We hope he follows the example of Dani Olmo, who is becoming the absolute leader of our team. Xavi loves chasing the ball and winning duels. He radiates great energy and is also a talented footballer.”
They will negotiate its continuity
Recently, the young footballer, who has been capped five times, revealed that he chose Leipzig consciously. He didn’t want to take too big a leap after his experience at PSV. These statements are music to the ears of his coach, who stated: “He wants to take the next step in his career here. If he feels good and believes that this is the right club for him, we will certainly talk about it.”
At only 20 years old, Xavi Simons is demonstrating his quality and his determination to progress in his career. RB Leipzig has become the perfect setting to develop his talent and continue his rise in European football.
