‘Agreed’ Man Utd transfer goes up in flames as dazzling star torpedoes Old Trafford move

Manchester United reached an agreement to sign Xavi Simons last summer but the Dutch ace rejected their advances, a report has claimed.

The winger, who can operate on either flank, has shone while on loan at RB Leipzig this season. He has registered nine goals and 15 assists in 42 matches, helping Leipzig win the German super cup, reach the Champions League last 16 and move up to fourth in the Bundesliga table.

However, Simons gained plenty of admirers last summer after notching 22 goals and 12 assists in 48 games for PSV.

According to German outlet Bild, the 21-year-old had a different opportunity before joining Leipzig, as Man Utd came forward to try and snare him.


Man Utd launched a major €60million (£52m) bid for Simons. It was soon accepted by PSG, as the two clubs ‘agreed a deal’ over the player’s prospective transfer.
