Dutch Super Star Frenkie De Jong About To Make Club History.
At the moment, the big, and only, sale that seems feasible is that of Frenkie de Jong, which, if completed, will become one of the most important in the history of the Catalan club.
Manchester United is determined to sign the 25-year-old Dutch international, considered one of the best midfielders in the world. The Premier League club has made contact with Frenkie De Jong, via Ten Hag – who managed him at Ajax – and Barcelona.
The offer is 60 million in fixed plus 20 million in variable. At the Nou Camp, it is assumed that no similar proposal will arrive for another player who is not essential for the club, as are, for example, Pedri or Ansu Fati. In the offices, they consider that the offer is too important not to accept it. The economic situation does not allow to reject it, even if Xavi is delighted with the performance and professionalism of Frenkie de Jong, a permanent element of his device.
The Dutch international, one of the highest paid professionals in the squad, has so far been reluctant to move. His dream was to play for Barça and, moreover, he believes he can continue to grow and improve with Xavi. But the insistence of United and Ten Hag and the pressure that Barcelona can put on him may change his position.
If the departure of Frenkie de Jong for the offer made by United, 60 million euros plus 20 million euros of variables, Barça will have the second largest influx of money for the departure of a player in its history. The most important operation was that of Neymar to PSG, although it was not a transfer as such but the French club paid the termination clause. Of 222 kilos. The Brazilian’s is the biggest deal ever made by Barça. It has never obtained so much income for a footballer. And now the former Ajax player could follow him in this ranking.
Arthur’s negotiation with Juventus was closed at 72 million fixed plus 10 million variable, but Pjanic was included in the operation, so the capital gain was 12+5. The sale of Figo was valued at 60 million and Paulinho at 50 million.
Frenkie de Jong arrived at the Camp Nou in the summer of 2019, the deal was closed at 75 million plus 11 in variables, and since then he has been an undisputed starter. In his first season he played 42 games, scored two goals and provided four assists; in the 20-21 season he played 51 games, scored seven goals and provided eight assists; and this season he has played 47 games, scored four goals and provided five assists. The Dutchman has not only performed at a high level, but he can also make history with his transfer.
