Barcelona Transfer News: Reports say that Chelsea is in the best position to sign Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong, who Manchester United also wants
Barcelona Transfer News: The Times says that if Frenkie de Jong leaves Barcelona in the summer transfer window, he is more likely to join Chelsea. Manchester United, who plays against Chelsea in the Premier League, is also interested in the Dutch midfielder and could move for him this month.
Frenkie de Jong has been at the centre of a big transfer story this summer. The 25-year-old doesn’t want to leave his dream club Barcelona, especially when he is about to reach his best.
But the Catalan giants s are looking for ways to get rid of him so they can save money on wages and sign new players.
Since Barcelona has signed Robert Lewandowski, Raphinha, or Jules Kounde for the 2022–23 La Liga season, the team needs to balance its books.
De Jong brings in a lot of money for the Blaugrana. Many of Europe’s best teams, like Chelsea and Manchester United, are interested in signing him.
Barcelona Transfer News: What’s the matter?
Chelsea might need to buy a creative midfielder this summer because N’Golo Kante and Jorginho’s futures are not clear. The two experienced midfielders are in the last year of their contracts.
This means Chelsea needs to find replacements. So, Frenkie de Jong is now a possible target. The west London club is said to want to sign him.
The latest report says that Chelsea is the favourite to sign the midfielder from Barcelona, even though Manchester United is still trying to sign him. The Red Devils have been chasing after the 25-year-old for a few months. But they have not been able to sign him.
Where will Frenkie De Jong move to?
Paul Pogba left Manchester United as a free agent. So the club had to find a replacement. De Jong is the best player to fill Pogba’s spot at Old Trafford.
Recent reports said that Manchester United had made their last offer to sign the midfielder from Barcelona.
But it’s more likely that the Dutch player will join Chelsea than Manchester United. Even though Barcelona’s deferred wages could still be a problem, Chelsea is still in the best position to take de Jong away from Barcelona in the summer transfer window.
