Xavi Simons rejected Real Madrid interest ahead of PSV switch

Former Barcelona youth team star Xavi Simons rejected a summer move to Real Madrid.

Simons has established himself as one of the highest rated teenage midfielders in Europe after an impressive rise to prominence.

After spending nine years with the iconic La Masia academy set up, Simons opted to leave Catalonia in 2019, to join Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain.

Despite edging his way into the PSG squad during the 2021/22 campaign, the 19-year-old was left frustrated by a lack of senior football.

PSG’s extension offer was rejected by the Netherlands U19 international who agreed to a loan to PSV Eindhoven last month.

PSV were eventually persuaded to accept a transfer, including a €4m buy back clause from 2023, with no hope of a renewal in the French capital.

According to reports from Marca, Simons’ stance on wanting to leave PSG was picked up on by Los Blancos, but he was unconvinced by a first team role in Madrid.

  1. Lol HE was unconvinced by a first team role? That was actually pretty funny.

    I havent seen anything remotely convincing by him, another media fairy tale fantasy.

    Want to se an impressive prospect? Take a gander at Vini or Rodrygo.

  2. I’m sorry but I don’t understand the second sentence. What prominent role has he ever played to be touted as 1 of the best teenage midfielders?

    Compared to Pedri, Gavi, Bellingham, Foden etc he has proved sweet FA

  3. Really and truly all he’s proved his he has a good PR team because on the field besides the youth team videos we have seen nothing from him. Also I think now the odds are against him but he’s young so fingers crossed
