Barcelona receive offer for Frenkie de Jong from Tottenham

Frenkie de Jong could be on his way out of Barcelona, with Tottenham Hotspur reportedly making an offer for the Dutch midfielder.

Barca president Joan Laporta is facing financial difficulties at the club, and selling some key players could be necessary to balance the books. De Jong, 26, is one of the players who could be sold.

Tottenham are the first club to make a concrete offer for De Jong. The offer is reportedly worth around €60 million, which is below Barcelona’s asking price. However, it would guarantee De Jong a four-year contract with a salary similar to what he is currently earning at the Catalan club.

Tottenham’s midfield has undergone a transformation in recent seasons, with new signings Rodrigo Bentancur, James Maddison, and Pape Matar Sarr all vying for places. Players like Yves Bissouma, Oliver Skipp, and Pierre Hojberg also provide competition in the middle of the park. The arrival of De Jong would give Tottenham added depth as they look to qualify for the Champions League.

While De Jong is a regular under Xavi Hernandez, he could consider leaving Barcelona at the end of the season. The departure of the Spanish coach could also be a factor. Barca’s board is also open to selling De Jong to balance the club’s finances. However, the club could also opt to keep the Dutchman.

Other Clubs Interested in De Jong

In addition to Tottenham, clubs like Chelsea and Manchester United have also expressed interest in De Jong, with potential offers expected in the coming months. The Blues could reportedly offer up to €85 million for the Dutchman. The Red Devils, meanwhile, have a good relationship with De Jong through their former coach Erik ten Hag.

The upcoming transfer window promises to be a busy one for De Jong, with several potential destinations in the Premier League that could change the course of his career. It remains to be seen whether Barcelona will accept the offers that come their way and whether the player will continue his adventure in Catalonia or seek new horizons in England.
