Although all the attention is concentrated MbappePSG is also waiting for Xavi Simons, which is still not renewed. The club has offered him more years on his contract but the Dutchman has not responded yet because he is not sure what role he is going to have in a team in which, for now, he has been overshadowed by the big stars: “I am happy. During these last years my idea was to have a professional file, and it is a reality. Follow? We’ll see,» he said.
The former Barça player knows that he will not be short of proposals on the table, but he does not rule out PSG either: “I look with the people I train with every day and it is amazing. I’m only 18 years old and I’m with footballers who have won everything. The best way to learn is to be by his side”, he referred to in an interview he gave to the club’s television. The outcome, however, is not a matter of days. The player, whose contract ends in June, will hurry until the end.
Although Pochettino has spoken wonders of Xavi Simons, the Argentine coach has not been able to give him enough minutes to be able to grow: “Young people have to be a fundamental part of this project”, the Santa Fe coach has once repeated, although that phrase has not been translated on the pitch. The young talent needs more prominence and PSG cannot guarantee it. For now, however, he does not rule out renewing it.
