Barcelona to offer new contracts to De Jong and Ter Stegen

Barcelona

FC Barcelona currently faces the challenge of Financial Fair Play restrictions. This is preventing them from making new player signings or registering contracts for existing stars. To address this, they need to decrease their salary expenditure by €200 million.

In order to achieve their objective, FC Barcelona views player sales as a highly effective approach. They will entertain offers for several key first-team players including Franck Kessie, Ferran Torres, Ansu Fati, Eric Garcia, and Raphinha.

Simultaneously, according to Mundo Deportivo, there are reports suggesting that Barcelona may consider renegotiating the contracts of two integral first-team players, Marc-Andre ter Stegen and Frenkie de Jong. They are deemed “non-transferable.”

Why are Barcelona not willing to part ways with De Jong and Ter Stegen any more?

Both Ter Stegen and De Jong are having exceptional seasons. Meanwhile, Ter Stegen continues to set new records, showcasing his outstanding performances. While De Jong has been highly influential in the team’s midfield, making a significant impact.

Merely last summer, Barcelona seriously contemplated selling De Jong. They even reached a deal with Manchester United. However, the player’s unwillingness to depart resulted in the operation being called off.

Currently, the Blaugrana have no intention of parting ways with the Dutch international. Despite the need to make at least one significant sale to address their Financial Fair Play issues.

Both De Jong and Ter Stegen will not be available for sale. However, given their high salaries, Barcelona is reportedly considering renegotiating their contracts to decrease their wages. The outcome of these negotiations is yet to check since Barcelona aims to bring their wage bill in line with the league’s regulations.
