Since the start of the summer transfer window, Frenkie de Jong has been regularly announced towards the exit. For good reason, the midfielder has a salary that is too substantial for the finances of FC Barcelona. According to Sport, his agent Ali Dursun is pushing for his colt to join England, which would be a source of conflict between the two men.
Who would have thought that FC Barcelona would push a player like Frenkie de Jong out? Snatched on the wire at PSG in 2019, the midfielder was to embody the renewal of Barça. If he performed well, the Dutchman has not yet revealed his full potential seen at Ajax Amsterdam.
But the 25-year-old could leave Spain already this summer. Since the start of the transfer window, De Jong has been announced for the exit, due to his large salary which is not compatible with the finances of the Catalans. However, the international is not really of this opinion, which annoys his agent a little. According to Sport, Ali Dursun is pushing for his colt to join England, and does not want him to lower his salary to stay in Spain. However, the Dutchman wants to stay at Barça.
A big offer from Chelsea
If this difference of opinion would be a source of conflict between the two men, an English club does not despair of attaching the services of the club. The Catalan outlet claim that Chelsea have made a big offer for the Catalans. Besides Marcos Alonso, the Blues are keen to offer €70m. If the negotiations for the lowering of the Dutchman’s salary do not succeed, it could be that the latter agrees to listen to Chelsea’s proposal.
In the meantime, the former Ajax figure is in the group summoned by Xavi to compete on August 7 for the Joan Gamper trophy. The Catalans will be opposed to Pumas UNAM (at 8 p.m.).
