Xavi not interested in Manchester United star amid transfer links

1 min read

Barcelona boss Xavi has reportedly rejected the chance to sign Donny van de Beek from Manchester United.

The Netherlands international found the back of the net against Watford at the weekend but consistently struggled for opportunities under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

It remains to be seen how a change in the dugout will impact Van de Beek’s United fortunes, but he is still being widely linked with an exit in 2022.

At this point, Barca are not actually able to sign anyone due to financial issues and their La Liga salary cap, but they are hoping things will change before the start of the window.

But one player Barca are unlikely to sign is Manchester United midfielder van de Beek.

Van de Beek signed for United from Ajax for £35 million in 2020 but has struggled to impress since.

According to Sport, Xavi has been presented with the option of signing van de Beek, but he rebuffed it.

It’s claimed Xavi said he has enough competition in the central midfield positions and doesn’t want to pursue the Dutchman.
