crazy ball – Barcelona are reportedly going to immediately notify their midfielder Frenkie de Jong that he must leave immediately as the club must expedite the exit before the start of the new 2022/2023 season.
What is the problem really? So, once again, the new La Liga season will start on August 12, 2022. For that, they need to register the new players they recruited this summer as early as possible.
As is known, Barcelona managed to sign Andreas Christensen (Chelsea), Franck Kessie (AC Milan), Raphinha (Leeds United), Robert Lewandowski (Bayern Munich) and Jules Kunde (Sevilla). All have officially become club players but are not legal to play in La Liga next season until they are registered.
Therefore, Blaugrana should increase their efforts to remove dead wood from the span. Oscar Mingueza has left the club, but the Catalan giants must find a new club for Samuel Umtiti, Riqui Puig, Neto and Martin Braithwaite, who were all left out of the club’s pre-season tour.
Apart from these names, the one biggest name expected to leave is Frenkie de Jong. As well as bringing in huge transfer funds, his departure could also significantly reduce the club’s wage bill.
The Dutch international has been a regular since his arrival from Ajax Amsterdam three years ago. But his hefty salary and unwillingness to take pay cuts to meet the club’s new wage policy is a big problem for Barcelona.
So now, as reported Cadena SER, The Catalan giants plan to clearly and directly inform Frenkie de Jong that he must leave the club as soon as possible as they need to speed up the departure of unexpected players in order to register new players.
Barcelona and Manchester United actually already have an agreement for the transfer of the Dutch international, as Fabrizio Romano reports, only he is reluctant to leave the club for red devil because they are not playing in the Champions League next season.
