Xavi Simons was left distressed after determining to quit Barcelona in 2019 and spent a week sobbing in his room after choosing to leave the Camp Nou, according to scout and friend Ferney Agudelo.
He allured plethora of headlines during his time at La Masia, and notably over one million Instagram followers, and had been tipped for big things at Barca prior he left on a free transfer for PSG in 2019.
Simons had been provided with a new deal at the Camp Nou but was unable to agree terms with the FC Barcelona. Agudelo states he didn’t leave for financial reasons and actually found it tough to switch clubs.
“The week he made the decision he spent crying in his room. It was not a question of money. His people realised that they were reaching the ceiling and thought about another sporting project,” he stated.
He is now 18 and his future is once again the subject of hypothesizing. Simons is out of contract in the summer and yet to renew. There have been gossips a Barcelona return has been discussed, whilst Rangers have also been connected with the teenager.
