Manchester United target Xavi Simons dreams of Premier League move

Manchester United are being linked with a move to sign a player dubbed the “next Xavi” from PSV Eindhoven this summer.

That is according to football journalist Ekrem Konur, who believes Xavi Simons has emerged as a top target for Erik ten Hag’s side.

The 19-year-old is one of the most highly-touted young players in Europe right now and it would make sense for Ten Hag and co to make enquires about him now before he ends up signing for another top European club.

Simons has scored 15 goals in 37 appearances so far this campaign and it is believed that Manchester United and Newcastle are monitoring his development. He has also been linked with moves to Liverpool and Bayern Munich.

The youngster was capped once by the Netherlands and can play as a No 8, No 10 and also as a winger on either flank.

Transfer expect Fabrizio Romano claims Simons’ future will be down to him.

“Xavi Simons dreams of Premier League football one day but PSV’s mission is to keep the player at least for the next season,” Romano told CaughtOffside.

“But Paris Saint-Germain have the clause into his contract to bring him back, Luis Campos is big fan of the player; the final decision will be 100% up to Xavi Simons.”
