[Barcelona teen sensation Xavier Mbuyamba’s agent Carlos Barros has revealed that there are a host of top clubs in contention to sign his client] Almost all the major clubs have asked about Xavier. Real Madrid also, they’re serious about their youth system, but that would be a sensitive switch. Juventus and Inter are interested too as are the best clubs in Germany and England
Chelsea have the best papers, we discussed this extensively last year. They gave a fantastic presentation. There is a unique football atmosphere there. During lunch you are immediately with the first team players and the club has outlined a very ambitious plan for Xavier.
They really think that in one to two years, he can be in the first team. Frank Lampard has of course already proven that he is not afraid to play young players. Being in the starting line-up at Chelsea at the age of twenty would of great of course.
[Barros then discussed a potential return to the Netherlands for his client] Ajax is actually the only club in the Netherlands that can compete financially against those top clubs, but you don’t just play there and a switch from Barça to Jong Ajax is not an option for Xavier. In that respect, AZ is a more logical choice, they are the most concrete option in the Netherlands. FC Utrecht has a partnership with Barcelona and could also be an option on a loan basis

[Barcelona youth team defender Xavier Mbuyamba is a target] Almost all the top European clubs asked about Xavier. Even Real Madrid are seriously interested, but it would obviously be a rather delicate transfer to work out. Juventus and Inter are interested, just like the best clubs in Germany and England. However, Chelsea are the favourites. We discussed it thoroughly last year and the club presented a very ambitious plan for Xavier. Frank Lampard has already proved he is not afraid to field young players and it would be fantastic to start in the Chelsea XI at the age of 20

[Barros also admitted that the lack of clarity from Barcelona has pushed Mbuyamba towards the exit door] The ambiguity is enormous
