Man Utd have contacted PSG about a move for Xavi Simons

Manchester United have reached out to Paris Saint-Germain to sign Xavi Simons on a permanent deal, according to L’Equipe.

The Red Devils have long been interested in Simons and attempted to sign him from Les Parisiens last summer.

Simons eventually made the loan move to RB Leipzig, where he registered ten goals and 15 assists in 43 appearances in all competitions.

United are reportedly back in the race for the Dutchman and are one of the clubs willing to sign him on a permanent deal.

However, Les Parisiens prefer a season-long loan as PSV Eindhoven will be owed most of the fee if PSG sell him by January 2025.

The French club re-signed Simons from PSV by activating a €6 million buy-back clause last summer.

United should attempt to land Simons on loan

PSG have closed the door on a permanent deal for Simons this summer. They would not want to lose out on a significant chunk of the transfer fee to PSV.

A loan exit seems the only viable solution. United should still attempt to land the highly-rated winger, who can play anywhere in the final third.

The right wing has been the most problematic position for United over the past few years and Simons would be a superb acquisition for the role.

He weighed in with ten goal contributions from 18 outings from the right flank last term. The 21-year-old won over 2.5 dribbles and six duels per appearance.

Simons also impressed with an average of 5.2 recoveries. United should seek a loan deal to assess his performances before considering a permanent approach.
