Former Barcelona’s star midfielder, Xavi, tells his former club about the next player they should sign!
Xavi instructs Barca.
There have been three years since Xavi left Barcelona’s midfield to end the best midfield in the history of football.
Him, Iniesta and Busquets were the best midfield trio ever and they showed that with Spain and Barcelona.
Barca was invincible with them in the squad, but things changed when Xavi left.
You can’t say that Barca is bad now. Far from it, but Barca’s performances have dropped in the Champions League, since Xavi walking out on Barca and going to the Middle East.
He has been playing quite successfully for Al-Sadd and has even signed a two-year extension at the club.
When Xavi was asked about Barca’s new signing Arthur, Xavi decided to talk about another player.
As reported in Vi, Xavi has instructed Barca to sign this player.
“I see (Frankie De Jong) as an enormous talent and he also works hard, it’s similar to Busquets pivot. The Ajax school is similar to Barça school, we all come from the Dutch school thanks to Cruyff.
“He is young but he could contribute many things, he is already seen as a great talent, and he would be a player to take into account, a very good player. He’s the type of player Barcelona needs.”
It looks like Xavi really wants Barca to sign young De Jong, but it does seem that this move could be too soon for the Ajax man.
“He’s the type of player Barcelona needs!”
Frenkie De Jong only has one full season at Ajax and he seems too inexperienced for a club like Barcelona.
Xavi speaks out publically once again about how Barcelona should sign players like Frenkie de Jong as he fits Barca’s DNA perfectly. Meanwhile Barcelona’s board is going all out for Willian.
It defines the downfall of everything Barcelona once stood for.

Still, De Jong is showing massive potential and there’s a big chance that he may end up at Barca sooner than latter.
