Xavi Hernandez is no longer looking to move Luuk de Jong out of his squad after watching him impress in recent games, claims Mundo Deportivo.

The Dutch striker scored a goal in the 2-3 loss to Real Madrid in the Spanish Supercopa semi-finals and the manager was impressed by that.

Luuk has scored in his last 3 outings for Barca and looked a real threat inside the box.

Xavi also values his hard-working ability, his attitude, and how he has been able to adapt to the new system.

Instead, Memphis Depay is now likely to be transfer-listed as Xavi won’t have a problem with him being offloaded.

The Dutchman reportedly ‘doesn’t suit’ the way Barca play under the Spaniard’s system and Luuk is a better fit.
