Zapping World Eleven TOP 10: The most profitable transfers in history
Barça therefore ended its season with a disappointing defeat against Villarreal (0-2), symbolizing the irregularity of a Blaugrana club which nevertheless finished second in La Liga. Now the Catalan club can focus on their summer. And Xavi did not hide after the meeting that a major project was coming up. “We saved a season that could have been catastrophic. From there, the diagnosis is made and many things have to be changed. We must be clear and transparent. I spoke with the president and the sports management. We have to change a lot of things, we can’t go wrong,” Xavi warned.
No recent contact with the Dembélé clan!
The 24hfootnews will be key and the first event will obviously be the Ousmane Dembélé case. If Xavi approached the issue with some detachment last night – “Players go where they feel happy. We will see Ousmane’s choice, what I can say is that he helped us, he behaved professionally” – the tension was more palpable at the sporting director Mateu Alemany who translated a mixture between impatience and annoyance… “Dembele’s future will be known to him and his agents. I have my personal opinion on this, but that’s not the point. There is no news of him, like in the last six or seven months. With the representative of Dembélé there is no negotiation for the moment, ”said the Blaugrana leader.
Finally, Xavi saw another sensitive issue come to the mat. If PSG intends to separate from Neymar this summer, is a return to Barça possible? “Neymar has a contract with PSG, I see it as difficult… These are players who are not ours. If Paris opens the door? We haven’t talked about it. We first want to strengthen our priority positions and then we will see, ”replied the Blaugrana technician.
Xavi: “Neymar if Paris opens the door? We haven’t talked about it. We first want to strengthen our priority positions and then we’ll see. »
