Since Xavi Simons left PSG and joined Dutch top-flight division PSV he hasn't stopped putting on weekly shows. Paris Saint-Germain, known for letting players go before they blossom, are now trying to bring the youngster back to Paris.

Only Netherlands international Xavi Simons knows what will be next for him and the future of his professional career. Right now, Simons is under contract at PSV and enjoying the best run of form he's ever gone through.

In order to boost his chances at making the best decision, Simons will soon change agents and enter a partnership with a new one. After getting blocked by other, bigger-name players at PSG, the youngster decided to move on and accepted a transfer to PSV last summer.

Under the guidance of Dutch legend Ruud van Nistelrooy, currently coaching the Eredivisie giants, Simons has surely developed into a monster of a player even though he is still 19 years old (he will turn 20 next Apr. 21st). Simons has appeared in 28 games in the Eredivisie, has scored 14 goals, and also has 7 assists in the league this season.

A while ago, it was reported that PSG hold an option to bring Simons back by way of including a buyout clause quoted at €12m in the contract of Simons with PSV. The clause, which is valid until June 2024, must be executed by the player in order to facilitate a move back to PSG for that low sum.

PSG and Barcelona want Xavi Simons back. Will the youngster opt to stay at PSV?

Obviously, Simons is having doubts about whether or not he should execute the option, one that PSG seem to be interested in activating themselves to have Simons back at the Parc des Princes ahead of next season. Considering how limited his role was in the capital last year and before, it's reasonable for the kid to have those doubts.

According to the Spanish newspaper Sport, Barcelona is also exploring the possibility of pursuing Xavi Simons next summer. In case you don't know, Simons is actually a Barcelona Academy player and he started his youth career there before signing with PSG... after getting blocking from a large role in Barcelona. See the trend?

Before the change of agents, Simons was represented by Rafaela Pimenta, a prominent football agent in possession of the rights of many high-profile players. One thing that might make the move hard for Barcelona to pull off, though, is the fact that the Catalan side don't really have any clause to re-acquire the youngster for cheap, or at least for as low a figure as PSG could thanks to their link to the player.

It's been rumored that Xavi Simons has been offered a new deal by PSV that would remove the PSG clause from it, thus making it harder for the Parisian club to buy the forward they once deemed unworthy of keeping.

It's now up to Simons to decide whether he wants to keep playing for a Dutch minnow in his native country or a European giant in Paris aiming at winning the Champions League on a yearly basis.
