In what will seems as a shock move for most Chelsea fans across the globe, report has emerged that the Blues are in the race to sign young Barcelona star Xavi Simons.
This is according to the Mirror who claims that the Blues are keen on luring the 12-years old starlet to Stamford Bridge this winter transfer window.
The Spaniard is one of the top talents of the La Liga giant’s legendary La Masia academy.
The highly rated midfielder father Roger Simons, a former striker and coach in the Dutch Eredivisie confirms Chelsea interest in his son when he said:
‘We have spoken to Chelsea and you know it’s going to be good money at Chelsea,” he said.
He further stated that a lot of clubs and agents are also monitoring Xavi situation and they have made tempting offers to sign the star.
‘Agents are everywhere,’ said Simons.
‘Even at a younger age they were starting to approach me making offers for Xavi, asking to be his agents, offering shoes and contracts and money like you can’t imagine. We don’t need any of that just now. We are trying to keep them away, in a polite way.
The young starlet was name after Barcelona legend Xavi Hernandez due to the similarity in playing style.
