The situation of Frenkie de Jong remains one of the topics of conversation on the tour of the FC Barcelona by the United States. Before travelling Xavi He met with the footballer and already on North American soil it was the president himself, Joan Laporta, who spoke with the Dutchman. De Jong You already know that in the current context in which the club finds itself, you have two options, either you agree to be transferred or if you stay, your record must be lowered to adapt to the new salary scale imposed by the club.
This has been exposed to the player, who for now remains firm in his desire to continue at FC Barcelona and does not contemplate an exit. And in the economic aspect, to date his representative has not negotiated any discount with the club and defends the contract that he has signed.
For the club to solve the case of Frenkie de Jong It is a priority, since they understand that the departure of the Dutchman would lower the salary mass of the workforce by more than 30 million and would allow the registration of several of the new signings. And in the event that the exit is not feasible, the only option is that they continue with a record appropriate to the new salary scale.
On the sporting level, Xavi spoke with the Dutchman and told him that he was counting on him, although he also warned him that he would have to fight for the place and that now he has a lot of competition, since apart from PedriThey are also Gavi, kessie y Nico struggling to play in midfield.
Memphis understands that he will play little
The other ‘delicate’ case is that of Memphis Depay, a player who arrived last year to be a starter and now it will be difficult to add minutes with the overbooking that is up front. He also has a high record and in his case he does understand that the best thing for him may be to find a way out.
The Dutchman maintains an excellent relationship with Jordi Cruyff and assumes that with the renewal of Dembele’s and the signings of Raphinha y Lewandowskitogether with the recovery of Ansu since in winter they arrived ‘dawn‘ y Ferran Torresthere is no place.
