It has been clarified that there is a clause in Xavi Simons’ PSV contract that allows PSG to buy him back if he wishes to return, with the fee they’d have to pay reportedly between €10m and €12m
Simons was expected to extend his PSG contract and leave the club on loan in the summer just gone, but PSV managed to sign the 19-year-old permanently, with him signing a five-year deal.
Reports in France claimed a buy-back clause was included in that deal that would allow PSG to bring him back if they wanted, but PSV denied the existence of such a clause.
Clarity on the matter has now been provided by general director Marcel Brands in his presentation of the Dutch club’s annual financial figures.
He has confirmed that there is a clause that allows PSG to re-sign Simons, but they can only do so if the Dutchman wants to join and if they pay a considerable fee.
It was not officially confirmed, but as reported by Eindhovens Dagblad and Voetbal International, that fee is somewhere from €10m to €12m.
