De Jong 95% to MU: Barcelona “run out of money”, wants to sell for 80 million euros

According to the Spanish press, Barcelona is ready to sell Frenkie De Jong for 80 million euros this summer to ease the financial burden.


When MU appointing coach Erik Ten Hag to the position of “captain” of the team next season, information that Frenkie De Jong can reunite with the old teacher has appeared. However, this story quickly died down when the Dutch midfielder announced his future commitment to Barcelona.

The press claims that 95% of De Jong will join MU this summer

However, the media once again caused this deal to heat up. Even the Spanish reporter Gerard Romero announced the possibility of the Dutch midfielder landing on the pitch Old Trafford up to… 95%. So why is the media so hot?

According to Gerard Romero’s source, Barcelona is having financial problems. Although president Joan Laporta has tried to improve the situation, problems exist that take time to resolve. The team’s income in the 2021/22 season is not expected to increase significantly.

Therefore, the ceiling salary (stipulated by La Liga) of this team has not increased much. According to COPE, Barcelona suffered a dramatic reduction in salary from 426 million euros/year to 104 million euros/year in the last season due to the impact of Covid-19. As a result of this, the Nou Camp team was forced to sell off players before thinking about buying new players.

Barcelona need to sell De Jong to free up salary

The problem is clearly seen when Barcelona soon abandoned the Haaland deal, the player who arrived at Man City and used it forever in the contract extension with Ousmane Dembele. Both deals are stuck on the salary point.

In the current Barcelona squad, Frenkie De Jong is the highest-paid and most-selling player. They want between Ansu Fati, Pedri or Gavi, young talents who have grown up from the club’s academy. De Jong was bought by Barcelona from Ajax for 75 million euros and they also want to push it away for the same price (from 70-80 million euros).

With the appearance of Ten Hag, MU holds the full advantage in this deal. The Dutch teacher understood his student well and once helped Frenkie sublimate in the Ajax shirt. The only problem is whether the MU leadership will agree to spend money or not.

According to reporter Jonas Hen Shrag, MU has not yet made any move regarding De Jong. It seems that the team leadership wants to respect the opinion of coach Erik Ten Hag. The Dutch teacher will take over at the team a few months later and by then, “blockbuster” Frenkie De Jong can land at Old Trafford.
