Frankie de Jong: no deal yet

Despite the fact that the indications were to sign the Netherlands before July 8, in meetings between Manchester City and FC Barcelona, ​​due to a ‘slight’ increase, the negotiation backed down. However, Frenkie de Jong admitted that playing with the ‘culé’ was a dream come true, but he could be living his last days as a Barça player in 2022.

Everything reveals that the whole of Barcelona is going through an economic setback, which puts the central de Jong on the table, with a first bid for 80 million euros plus bonus until Tuesday when the chip was increased. His dubious performance will not be an impediment to getting the most out of the one from the Netherlands and that is how Fabrizio Romano told it when he assured that there was a Barça-United meeting on Tuesday in which the ‘culés’ let the English know that the player will not go out for less than 86 ´grand´.

Amount that, at the moment, those of ‘Old Trafford’ are not willing to pay, for which reason no agreement was reached at said summit and the negotiations will continue in the near future. The aforementioned professional specified that Barcelona wants these 86 million guaranteed due to the economic regulations of LaLiga.

Orders are orders?

Erik ten Hag wants De Jong on his squad no matter what. So it could be said that it would be the start of a new ambitious project in the Theater of Dreams, but Barcelona refuses to let him out, by order of Xavi Hernández.

The ‘red devils’ said they were calm since the market officially opens on July 1 and “there is no rush”, but the truth is that there is a date in the minds of the coaching staff, the start of the preseason. As planned, July 8 will be when Ten Hag’s new Manchester United kicks off. It will take place in Thailand and the English club sees it as ideal that Frenkie was already incorporated so that he adapts as quickly as possible.

Neither barter nor money

The main name for the transferable posters is that of Frenkie de Jong, meanwhile, Manchester United was insisting that they were willing to pay almost 80 million euros, but those of Barcelona require at least 86 guaranteed looking to get more out of Manchester who, according to rumours, had indicated that the budget “would not be a problem”.

While Barça’s technical secretariat is working on the possible departure of the Dutchman, recently the possibility of Bernardo Silva leaving Manchester City and landing at the Camp Nou to make up for the loss of the international for the Netherlands has sounded strong.

There was even speculation of a swap between the Portuguese and the ‘Oranje’ player, but ‘RAC1’ reported on the night of this Tuesday to Wednesday that the English rule out this possibility and that the Portuguese will only leave the Etihad Stadium after paying a large amount of money.
