Amid claims club have put him up for sale, Frenkie de Jong’s stance on leaving Barcelona revealed
An insight into Frenkie de Jong’s stance on leaving Barcelona following claims the club are open to selling the Dutchman has been revealed on Wednesday.
Barcelona open to selling De Jong
Frenkie de Jong would sign for FC Barcelona back in the summer of 2019.
The Spanish powerhouse are understood to have paid around £77m to bring the midfielder to the Camp Nou on the back of a starring campaign, in which he helped Ajax reach the semi-final of the Champions League.
Since his move to Catalonia, though, De Jong has struggled to showcase the abilities that made him such a desirable asset for Barcelona in the first place.
Not all of the blame can be put on De Jong for this, though, with Barcelona as a club experiencing something of a crisis, with La Blaugrana now on their 3rd permanent manager since De Jong joined the club.
Now though, it has emerged this week that Barcelona have put Frenkie de Jong up for sale:
