The Dutch star is playing with an extremely impressive performance under RB Leipzig.
Last summer, Manchester United suԀԀenly put all their efforts into the task of recruiting Mason Mount, and after all, the English star also landed at Old Trafford for a total fee of up to 65 million pounds.
However, even in the pre-season, Mount made Man Utd fans feel worried with unconvincing performances.
Entering the new season, the fears of Red Devils fans became a reality, as Mount continued to perform poorly in the opening two matches and even suffered a long-term ιnjury.
It is worth mentioning that, to focus on the task of acquiring Mount’s signature, Man Utd decided to shelve another potential deal. And perhaps, they are quite regretful about this choice.
That was the case with Xavi Simons. Journalist Fabrizio Romano confirmed that Man Utd had the opportunity to sign the Dutch midfielder when he had not yet officially left PSV Eindhoven.
However, in the end, Man Utd missed the opportunity to recruit Simons, creating conditions for Paris Saint-Germain to reunite the 20-year-old midfielder. Not long after, Simons moved to RB Leipzig on loan to find opportunities to play regularly, but in the end he became an explosive factor at this club.
Data from Statman Dave shows that, after the opening 4 Bundesliga matches of this year’s season, the former PSV star really stunneԀ in Germany with 3 goals and 4 assists.
On average, every 90 minutes, PSG players win 3.8 duels, 3.8 ball recoveries, 1.5 passes to create scoring opportunities and 1.2 successful dribble attempts.
Not only did Simons shine in the Bundesliga, he also proved his class in the Champions League – the most prestigious arena in Europe. On Leipzig’s opening day against Young Boys, the Dutch talent was the owner of the title of Best Player of the match.
