Frenkie De Jong has moved past the summer drama and found his groove this season

Busquets

Frenkie De Jong and his failed transfer to Manchester United was one of the most intriguing stories this summer. Barcelona had accepted a big offer for the Dutch midfielder from Manchester United who wanted to strengthen their midfield. However, the player refused to negotiate with the Red Devils as he wanted to stay at the Camp Nou.

The midfielder was also linked with a move to Chelsea; however, he was adamant he wants to stay in Spain. Barcelona was interested to sell the midfielder primarily due to financial pressure. The sale of midfielder would have helped in relieving the pressure to a much needed extent. However, the club President always maintained that they don’t wish to sell the player.

The Blaugrana eventually triggered multiple financial levers to reduce the financial burden and strengthen the squad. Frenkie De Jong has been an important part of the team for Xavi Hernandez and has finally found his groove this season.

Frenkie De Jong stole the show against Villarreal

The Dutchman was given a standing ovation by the fans when he was substituted in the 70th minute. He was impressive on the ball as he maintained a 95% passing accuracy. The star midfielder also won all of his duels and maintained a 100% accuracy when it came to crosses.

Defensively, Frenkie De Jong impressed even more as he completed 5 successful tackles. He made one interception in addition to the tackles and recovered the ball 8 times during his playing time. It was an overall complete performance by the Netherlands international for Barcelona.

The Fans were impressed by his display against Villarreal and the team did not miss Sergio Busquets at all. Frenkie De Jong seems ready to replace Sergio Busquets in the long run and has settled extremely well at the club. Let’s hope that the Blaugrana are able to achieve their goals this season and build strongly for coming years!!
