Barcelona Considers Selling Frenkie de Jong Despite Key Role in Squad

Frenkie de Jong has been a mainstay in the middle of the field for Xavi Hernandez. He was thought to be one of the players most likely to leave last summer since he wouldn’t take a wage reduction. This caught the attention of the team’s management.

The Dutch international player eventually obtained his wish to continue at Barcelona under his present terms, and Xavi has relied on him ever since.

Now, months later, the footballer only seems to be thinking about Barcelona, as seen by his most recent comments: “No, I don’t think I’m leaving. You never know, but I’m really pleased with where I am now.

But it’s important to remember that his salary is still a concern for the club’s budget, which will make it even harder to put together a team this summer. Barcelona understands they will have to sell a few players, and Dembele and De Jong are two of the most sought-after ones.

Manchester United and Bayern Munich have already asked about him, and it’s not out of the question that Barcelona would let him leave if they got an offer close to €90 million.
