TRB Leipzig's Determination to Retain Xavi Simons

Max Eberl, Director of Football, Highlights Simons' Emotional Bond with the Club and Plans for His Extended Stay

RB Leipzig's Director of Football, Max Eberl, is committed to securing the continued presence of Xavi Simons in the team beyond the current season. Simons, the Dutch midfielder on loan from Paris Saint-Germain, is set to see his loan deal conclude in July 2024, but Leipzig is determined to retain his services.

This desire to keep Simons has been emphasized by both RB Leipzig's head coach, Marco Rose, and Max Eberl himself. Rose has expressed his interest in retaining Simons even after the loan deal expires, and Eberl believes that Simons has developed an emotional attachment to the club.

Eberl conveyed their intentions, stating, "Of course, we have the intention to extend this in the best-case scenario." He acknowledged Simons' impressive start and current form, emphasizing their efforts to forge a lasting connection with the player: "I think we're currently tying him emotionally to RB Leipzig."

Eberl also acknowledged the unpredictability of a season but reiterated their determination to secure Simons' stay well into the summer of 2024. Despite the absence of a buy option in the loan agreement, Simons' exceptional performance, with three goals and five assists in just five Bundesliga games, suggests he may become a more enduring fixture in Leipzig's midfield.
