Frenkie de Jong is one of the great protagonists of the FC Barcelona transfer market. The club hopes to sell him as soon as possible, and his sporting situation will not help him
The FC Barcelona is in the middle of a very 'moved' market of signings in which the reinforcements have surpassed the expectations. The intention of Joan Laporta, president of the club, and company is that the team go back to compete by all the titles, but before this there are a lot of subjects 'pending' for resolving. The operation gone out is one of the subjects that more concern to the culés, but has ralentizado -more than the expected- and the uncertainty is absolute.
It is worth it to remember that it does some days desvelaba that Xavi Hernández, Barcelona trainer, had done a request to the Barcelona directive: resolve the situation of the 'descartes' before it finish turns it of pre-season by the United States, that is in his final phase (remain two parties). They have not existed advances and everything seems to indicate that the aim of the of Terrassa will follow delaying.
In addition to the players that are in the ramp of exit (Umtiti, Puig, Braithwaite, Net...) A recurrent name tied with the 'operation gone out' is the one of Frenkie of Jong. Although the financial situation of the club has 'improved' with the economic injection thanks to the 'crowbars' (the sale of 25% of the television rights by the next 25 years), the sale of the Dutch continues antojándose like an operation that the Barça wants to complete.
The uncertainty with Frenkie is maximum and in the pre-season has remained showed that his role in the team has changed. It has not played in the centre of the field, but like head office; a position that, although it is not natural, already has tested in a lot of opportunities, especially with Ronald Koeman in the season 2020-21. That Xavi was using it there has been interpreted like a 'threat', although the trainer does not see it of this form.
The words of Xavi on Of Jong
Questioned in this regard, after the Classical against the Real Madrid (0-1), Xavi aimed that "I am not here to send messages. Already I spoke with Frenkie, value it a lot. It is a key player, but afterwards is the economic situation and the Fair Play Financial…", adding that the Dutch can also contribute from the axis of the defence: "can give Us a lot also like head office".
