Barça and PSG say yes, Xavi is no longer laughing

FC Barcelona and PSG discreetly negotiated the transfer of Layvin Kurzawa this winter. But Xavi is on track to bring down the house of cards.

FC Barcelona have noted a serious problem on the left wing of their defense and are looking to Paris SG to resolve it. Indeed, the Catalan club still have the Jordi Alba moped under their elbow, but Junior Firpo has joined Leeds and young Alejandro Balde is considered too frail to be number 2 in this left-back position. As a result, PSG were contacted to discuss the terms of the arrival of Layvin Kurzawa. The Parisian defender does not enjoy any playing time under Mauricio Pochettino, and he now seems to have accepted the possibility of leaving this winter. Even if they are very often enemies on and off the pitch, PSG and Barça are also able to get along if the interest is common. A transfer of around 5 million euros is obviously capable of getting everyone to agree. Joan Laporta like Nasser Al-Khelaïfi believe that the price is right, and the player seems to want to give new impetus to his career.

Xavi prefers José Luis Gaya to Layvin Kurzawa

The idea of ​​going to Barça, which has been following him for some time now, makes sense for him, and even if he will have to make an effort on his salary, the rebound is interesting at 29 years old. But there is a big catch. This recruitment must have the sports endorsement of Xavi, who does not necessarily have the same opinion as its leaders. The new coach of the Catalan club does not completely close the door on the arrival of the French international, but has a preference which is called José Luis Gaya. According to Xavi, the Valencia FC defender will be a much better competitor to Jordi Alba than Layvin Kurzawa, who is likely to arrive totally out of form. Obviously, the cost is not the same, since it will cost 20 million euros to bring Gaya to Barça. But for the moment, if Xavi continues to show such a firm will, there is a good chance that the club will try to find an agreement with FC Valencia before actually trying his luck with PSG.
