crazy ball – Manchester United look set to brace themselves with fears of missing out on top target Frenkie de Jong after Chelsea opened negotiations with Barcelona over the Netherlands international’s transfer, as reported via Sport.
It has become very clear that the Catalan giants are very determined to be able to sell the 25-year-old, especially since he is the owner of the highest salary at Camp Nou at IDR 8.5 billion per week, so his departure will greatly help the club to register new players with La Liga.
So far, only Manchester United have a real interest in signing former Ajax Amsterdam star Fabrizio Romano, even though they have previously been reported to have agreed a transfer fee of up to IDR 1.3 trillion, including bonuses, with Barcelona.
But now, as the report of Sport, Chelsea have already received approval from manager Thomas Tuchel to launch a bid for Frenkie de Jong. Following their declaration of intent at the weekend, the west London giants today opened talks with La Liga sides over the 25-year-old’s transfer.
Barcelona are rumored to be demanding a fee of at least IDR 1.2 trillion from the side The Blues for their Dutch midfielder, a price slightly in line with the bid Manchester United made for them. It is not clear whether that figure includes bonuses or only in the form of an initial payout.
It’s no secret that the Catalan giants are also interested in the defender duo The Blues Marcos Alonso and Cesar Azpilicueta, something the Premier League hope will help them in negotiations to bring Frenkie de Jong to Stamford Bridge.
