The situation 

The future of Frenkie de Jong is more up in the air than ever . It is evident that Barcelona has little room for maneuver if it wants to release salary mass and carry out an operation that provides immediate financial liquidity. Today, all roads lead to the sale of the Dutch midfielder. In fact, at the meeting of FC Barcelona this Tuesday in La Junquera there will be a long discussion about the ways to activate the various levers that the club has to boost the club’s coffers and one of them is, obviously, the sale of assets within the squad and especially the possible sale of Frenkie de Jong. The midfielder, who has been concentrating with his team since Monday to prepare for the Nations League, has begun to see the ears of the wolf, since he has not been so blunt about his future in statements to ‘ESPN’: “I prefer to stay in Barcelona. Barcelona has been the club of my dreams since I was little, but if other clubs call, I will take the call, of course; it is something that is always done.” In fact, all the information indicates that Frenkie de Jong has already received several calls from his former Ajax coach, Ten Hag, asking him to join his project in Manchester. The current United coach wants the Blaugrana to become the philosopher’s stone of his adventure in the Premier. 

The details

However, Frenkie neither denies nor confirms this interest, simply making it clear that “there is nothing official and there is no agreement”. Barcelona is open to opening negotiations starting at 90 million euros, a figure that it considers to be a minimum, taking into account the market value of the player and that he still has a contract until 2026. And meanwhile, Frenkie only asks to be left alone and not to speculate any more about him: “I don’t want to talk about rumors. I insist that I’m fine in Barcelona.”
