Young talent Xavi Simons, who grew up from Barcelona’s infrastructure last week and then transferred to PSG, could not find the chance to play, and signed a contract with PSV, one of the Dutch teams, until 2027.
Real Madrid was considering signing 19-year-old young talent Xavi Simons, whose contract with Paris Saint-Germain expired, and evaluating him in Castilla, the B team.
In fact, Xavi Simons, who moved to Barcelona from the infrastructure of Club Deportivo Thader, one of the regional teams of Alicante city, and went to the Netherlands U-15 and U-16 national teams, was really the right choice for Real Madrid.
Especially, Xavi Simons was the most accurate of the current talents to be prepared to replace Luka Modric, who is 36 years old and has made a great contribution to the corporate identity of Real Madrid with his playing style and responsibility for 10 years.
However, the Dutch young football player did not want to extend his contract with PSG or Real Madrid’s thought of preparing him for Luka Modric and preferred PSV.
In fact, for those who were planning the career of Xavi Simons, the choice of PSV was very right for the player. It is really important for a young football player to play both matches and play in his own country.
The chance that he will not find in PSV and Real Madrid A Teams as he wants, will definitely find in PSV. The matches he will play this season will contribute greatly to his own development. The place where the football player will develop is the official matches on the field.
Time to new players at Real Madrid
It’s time for Real Madrid to replace the aging stars who give character to the team.
With the departure of Zinedine Zidane along with Cristiano Ronaldo, the main reason why they could not use the Gareth Bale they had, and especially in the Champions League, was the choice of the Spanish coach Julen Lopetegui, who replaced him.
As a matter of fact, Gareth Bale, who was eager to lead the team after Ronaldo, broke the ropes between them when the Spanish coach seemed to be on the side of the Spanish players.
Garet Bale Real Madrid
Real Madrid paid dearly for the mistake of choosing between the coach and the squad at hand, especially being the first player to leave the game under Julen Lopetegui’s management.
However, at that time, the football world had the belief that he would replace Ronaldo for Gareth Bale and be the number 1 star of the team.

Julen Lopetegui managed to stay at Real Real for only 2.5 months. However, even Juan Ignacio G-Ochoa, the football writer of the Marca newspaper, was constantly expressing in his articles that Bale should be taken under protection.

Carlo Ancelotti Real Madrid big chance
At the end of some wrong choices, first Zidane and then Ancelotti returned to Real. These master coaches were the biggest chance for Real Madrid.
Especially this season, Carlo Ancelotti’s skill and determination to use the old and the young together would have given Real Madrid a great victory in the Champions League.
Carlo Ancelotti’s contribution did not end there. The self-confidence given to him in the development of Vinicius Junior and the adaptation of Eduardo Camavinga to the team at the age of 19, once again saw the whole football world how the decision of a president to choose a coach will create added value to the team.
Now that there was a master like Carlo Ancelotti, it was time to assemble a player who would give a different viewing pleasure to the team and to those watching Real.
And this is Antony, whose full name is Antony Matheus dos Santos, who has done great work with Ajax the last two seasons.
Antony is a good opportunity for Real Madrid. Just like Vinicius Junior and Eduardo Camavinga, Ancelotti is the only one who will bring him to the team with the highest performance in the shortest time.
However, they must be quick.
Otherwise, Erik Ten Hag, who knew him very well in Ajax and transferred to Manchester United this year, could take him to Manu at any time. Especially if the Cristiano Ronaldo and Manu crisis, which Jorge Mendes is about to make the second Di Maria case, escalates, Antony will definitely go to Manchester United.
Last week, Chelsea’s new owner, Todd Boehly, met with Cristiano’s manager, Jorge Mendes.
However, Cristiano Ronaldo returned to Manchester United in the summer of 2021 and scored 24 goals in 38 games last season, gaining huge support from the public and ManU fans.
However, Jorge Mendes will want to create 1-2 bigger trades from his biggest capital, Cristiano. Florentina Perez, the president of Madrid, knows this best.
Who is Antony Matheus dos Santos
Antony Matheus dos Santos was born on February 24, 2000 in the city of Osasko, in the north of Sao Paulo State in the Southern Region of Brazil. The city is a typical working-class city with low-income families.
Partido dos Trabalhadores, founded by unionists in the region during Antony’s childhood, became the largest party in the Federal Senate.
At the age of 8, Antony started his football career by going to the infrastructure of the Sao Paulo team, which is 16 km away from where he lived. At the age of 16, he won the J League Challenge tournament in Japan, where he participated with his team, and was selected as the best player of the tournament.
Antony signed a five-year contract with the A team in September of that year. Antony, who started to take part in the A team for a short time after the contract, played in 52 matches including the Sao Paulo youth academy and scored 6 goals. At the beginning of 2020, Ajax announced a transfer agreement with Sao Paulo.
Everyone was worried when the Dutch press reported that 15 million transfer from Ajax to the new season. Antony was also a young star to be recruited from Brazil, like David Neres. Ajax could not create the financial value it wanted from Neres.
And he sold Neres cheaper than he bought it. In the agreement made with Sao Paulo and Ajax, it was stated that the Antony transfer will enter into force on July 1, 2020, while the signature is 5 years old. It was also stated in the terms of the contract that the testimonial could increase to 21 million 750 thousand euros with the bonuses.
Football Director Marc Overmars said: “We have to be patient until Anthony arrives. He is a creative player who can play many positions. It is certain that some of our players will leave this summer. We are making plans for this. We are happy to realize this transfer already. Anthony scored 4 goals and provided 6 assists in 29 league games with his team last year.” He used expressions like don’t worry.
Marc Overmans was right. Antony played with 17 goals and 12 assists in 55 games, especially with Ajax, where he served in the right wing position. Undoubtedly, Ajax had a great contribution, like Dusan Tadic, in selling 28-year-old Sebastien Haller to Borussia Dortmund.
Antony, who was called up to the team that won the gold medal in the 2020 Summer Olympics with the Brazil U-23 team, scored the second goal against Venezuela in the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers in the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers in his first international match with the Brazilian national team, and against Paraguay in February, Antony had previously played before. He never wore the national jersey.
Real Madrid that Antony is first class player despite his young age. Don’t miss it while Carlo Ancelotti is there…
Antony Matheus dos Santos is a Football Republic Advice for Real Madrid.
