Today, Barcelona beat AC Milan 1-0 in the last friendly of their tour of the United States, which did not include striker Ousmane Dembele, who told coach Xavi Hernandez of his desire to emigrate to Paris Saint-Germain.
Ansu Fati scored the only goal of the game 10 minutes into the second half at the Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas and ran to hug Dembele, who was watching the game from the bench but was not wearing a Blaugrana uniform. “.
“Usman’s problem is simple. He told me that he had an offer from PSG, that he wanted to leave,” Xavi said of the situation with the 26-year-old striker, world champion in Russia 2018 and runner-up in Qatar 2022. .
PSG have targeted the French international following the departure of Lionel Messi and in the face of a conflict that could end the cycle of Kylian Mbappe, who missed out on the Asian tour after refusing to renew his contract.
Xavi said that the player had contacts with PSG coach Spaniard Luis Enrique and with President Nasser Al-Khelaifi. “He has an offer that we cannot match. In this sense, we cannot compete,” he admitted.
In the last 17 minutes of the match in Las Vegas, which was watched by about 38,000 people, Argentinean Luca Romero came out for Milan, replacing American Christian Pulisic. (Telam)
