In recent weeks, there has been much speculation surrounding the future of young offensive talent Xavi Simons. However, it appears that the uncertainty surrounding his next move has been partially clarified. According to industry expert Fabrizio Romano, Simons will once again be under contract with Paris St. Germain (PSG), as the French capital club has exercised their buy-back clause to bring him back to the Eiffel Tower. This move will see PSV Eindhoven receive a solid sum of six million euros for the transfer.
Simons, who has also been linked with Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund and RB Leipzig, has since left the Dutch national team’s training camp to finalize the deal with PSG. The final destination for Simons will largely depend on the futures of PSG’s star duo, Kylian Mbappé (24) and Neymar (31), as explained by Romano.
The plan for PSG is clear: if either Mbappé or Neymar were to leave the club this summer, Simons will definitely be featured in PSG’s lineup for the upcoming season. However, if both Mbappé and Neymar stay, the Dutch youngster is expected to be loaned out to another club to gain valuable playing time and experience.
This exciting development marks a significant step in Simons’ career as he returns to the club where he initially made a name for himself. PSG’s decision to exercise the buy-back clause speaks volumes about their belief in Simons’ talent and potential. It is clear that the Parisian club sees him as a valuable asset for both the present and the future.
From a footballing perspective, this move provides Simons with the opportunity to continue his development at one of Europe’s top clubs. The competitive environment and high standards at PSG will undoubtedly push him to improve his game and showcase his skills on a grand stage.
Xavi Simons’ return to PSG marks an exciting chapter in his young career. While his immediate future will depend on the decisions of Kylian Mbappé and Neymar, the buy-back move itself signifies the high regard in which PSG holds Simons’ potential. Whether he stays at PSG or goes out on loan, it is clear that he is a player to watch in the coming seasons.
