Is Frenkie De Jong Sale the way Forward?


Frenkie de Jong is set to return from injury to make the Barcelona squad for El Clasico, but could this be one of the last times that the Netherlands international takes part in the great fixture against Real Madrid?

Frenkie De Jong can solve financial troubles

Although Xavi has expressed his love and admiration for the former Ajax player, as well as how important he is to the Barcelona team, the team’s financial struggles and the arrival of Fermin Lopez as a sensation at Camp Nou raise the possibility that, should a record-breaking offer materialize. It may be best to sell a player who has a contract through 2026.

Given that De Jong’s contract is entering its last two years. And his expected transfer worth (xTV) is close to €50 million. It may be best for Barca to sell him now. While his market value is still rather high.

Manchester United Interest

Erik ten Hag is the manager of Manchester United. Has made no secret of his admiration for Frenkie De Jong, having sought him during the summer transfer window.

Given Casemiro’s struggles this season, the former Ajax manager must fancy pursuing De Jong once more if he stays at Old Trafford come summertime.

This year, unlike last year, he could have the support to pull it off.

Getting the manager Frenkie De jong his fans have been dreaming of is the perfect way to start off strong at Manchester United.


Meanwhile, Fermin Lopez, a 20-year-old, seems to be Barcelona’s ready-made successor for Frenkie De Jong.

The young player, who made his first-team debut this season, has two goals to his name. On Wednesday, he put on his best performance yet. Scoring a goal and setting up another in a 2-1 victory over Shakhtar Donetsk.

He’s had some great performances in La Liga as well.

He may prove to be a challenge to Frenkie De Jong in a starting position by the end of the season. Which will give both Barcelona and the Dutchman much to think about before the summer.
