FC Barcelona, one of the biggest football teams on the planet, is vulnerable to keeping great players like Frenkie De Jong because of its current financial predicament, which is hurting the club’s reputation internationally and therefore, Frenkie de Jong transfer rumors are getting more accurate day by day.
The manager and president of FC Barcelona earlier refuted De Jong’s transfer rumors, but the impending deadline raises the possibility that the Dutch midfielder has decided to join Chelsea FC rather than Manchester United.
Now, lets find out few probable destinations for Frenkie De Jong.
Frenkie de Jong transfer rumors: The Dutch Midfielder’s Top 3 Landing Spots
Numerous well-known soccer journalists predict that Frenkie would leave FC Barcelona if certain teams make offers, and as of right now, De Jong’s agency is looking into this theory wholeheartedly.
Some United fans once hoped that Frenkie De Jong may eventually take over for Nemanja Matic and play with Pogba, Fred in the middle of the field and another benefit is that De Jong may make Paul Pogba’s ideal opponent or replacement.
For the last few months, Frenkie de Jong transfer rumors demonstrated that Manchester United were the only team who were interested in signing this prolific Dutch player with a lucrative offer because of their new manager, Eric Ten Hag. However, the midfielder decided not to advance talks with Old Trafford for not participating in the next UCL.
Over the past several years, Manchester City have been hunting for a replacement for their aging powerhouse, and Frenkie De Jong’s current situation suggests that he may be the ultimate solution.
The player Pep Guardiola wants most at the Etihad is young Frenkie De Jong, who has been identified as the top target for the Citizens and you know you’ve been doing something well if the manager who may be the greatest successful manager of all time has you as his top priority.
The Sky-Blues will almost certainly become the next major European superpower and ultimately capture the UEFA Champions League, which is what their Emirati owners have been vying for since they acquired the team back in 2007. If Frenkie joins Manchester City and becomes successful then they will be able to do anything.
Although Barcelona has publicly said that they want to keep De Jong, they have been working behind the scenes to make it as difficult as possible for the Dutch international to remain at the club.
De Jong is even claimed to have received a warning from the Catalan giants that they intend to terminate his current contract owing to alleged illegal activity in the terms of the agreement in the contract he signed under Bartomeu management.
As a result, Chelsea has made significant progress in their pursuit of Frenkie de Jong as they go close to a £67.6 million agreement to buy the Barcelona midfielder in coming days and rumors are that the Dutch midfield maestro also verbally agreed on personal terms with the London club a few days ago.
Despite Chelsea having made major progress, the Netherlands international has been at the center of the summer’s most bizarre transfer drama, which may still have a ways to go.
