Frenkie Of Jong is very close to “changing tunes” in the coming weeks. Both FC Barcelona and Manchester United want to address postures to concretize their movement, although the footballer still has not seen his traspaso well. The Dutchman has made it clear his wish is to triumph as Barcelona and is considering a step back in his career at a club that hasn’t competed in the Premiership and will contest the European League.

However, Barça knows that the ’21’ is one of the footballers by which the elder ‘coupé’ can go out in this summer market. In fact, that’s the only reason I want to sell him, since Xavi Hernández considers him an important piece within his game scheme, although he also understands the serious financial situation that is going through the institution . This is how the meeting point between the two groups is every day closer to happening.

Now, journalist Fabrizio Romano has given more details on the negotiations between the English and the Catalans, assuring that everything will be directed since last Monday. “The agreement is more than concluded on Monday between Manchester United and Barcelona by Frenkie de Jong. There will be a fixed price of 65 million euros, but the structure of complementos of 20 million is to argue … And after the personal terms”, referred to the “mercato” specialist.

The culés want to ingresar 80 ‘kilos’ fixed by Frenkie and the “net devils” must exceed this figure but with variables included, something that does not end up being part of the managerial blaugrana. Joan Laporta and company are negotiating so that these bonuses are “easy” to reach, taking into account the games played, the announcements of his selection and the classification for the next Champions League.

Nature reserve

Xavi considers his exit viable only if the balance of the squad does not remain unbalanced. The signing of Franck Kessié will serve to compensate for his decline, although the ideal target would be Bernardo Silva of Manchester City. The Portuguese has the ‘DNA Barça’, but the ‘citizens’ have valued it at 100 million, a figure much higher than the reality in the coffers of the entity. Rubén Neves is also on the table as a substitute for Sergio Busquets, which would ensure him tenure at Gavi or at the marfileño as an interior.
