Barcelona boss Xavi responds to Chelsea’s interest in swapping Pulisic for De Jong

Barcelona are reportedly interested in signing Chelsea winger Christian Pulisic in January and the Blues are reportedly demanding either £42million in cash for Pulisic or Frenkie de Jong in exchange.

New Barcelona boss Xavi has categorically ruled out midfielder star Frenkie De Jong leaving in the upcoming transfer windows in exchange for Pulisic.

Speaking ahead of Barcelona’s trip to take on Villarreal on Sunday night, Xavi said: “Our goal is for Frenkie to be happy here. We desperately need that type of player.

“He is definitely not in the shop window, rather the opposite. The idea is to make him stronger here.”

De Jong has started all three games under Xavi since his appointment as Barcelona boss.
