Chelsea Transfer News: Chelsea Close to Agreement With Barcelona For Frenkie de Jong

Chelsea Transfer News: The Blues are close to reaching an agreement with Barcelona for the transfer of Dutch midfielder Frenkie de Jong, according to reports.

De Jong has been linked with a move away from Barcelona all summer, with Manchester United also interested in the Dutch midfielder.

Manchester United have made De Jong their top transfer target this summer, with Erik ten Hag keen to bring the 25-year-old midfielder to Old Trafford.

However, a transfer has not materialized, and Man Utd’s absence from the Champions League has not helped their pursuit.

The Red Devils could now face competition from Chelsea, with Spanish outlet Sport reporting the Blues are close to reaching an agreement with Barca for De Jong.

Chelsea could also offer De Jong Champions League, something Man Utd cannot as they missed out on qualification due to their sixth-place finish in the Premier League last season.

However, it remains to be seen if De Jong will leave the Catalan outfit before the summer transfer window closes. Barcelona owes the Dutchman around €17m in deferred wages, and that is also complicating matters.

De Jong has also publicly stated that he prefers to stay in Barcelona. Barcelona has also been maintaining they want De Jong to stay. But they want the Netherlands international to accept a pay cut. De Jong is also highly-rated by Barcelona coach Xavi.
